You can keep your thermostat set higher and expect to save as much as 30% off your cooling bill! Remember, a fan does not cool a room, just the people in a room so remember to turn it off when the room is empty.

Energy Saving Tips

  1. Motion sensors are an effective way to ensure lights are on only when needed.
  2. Timers can operate lights and other appliances in your absence.
  3. Dimming not only sets mood, but extends the life of your bulb.
  4. Energy efficient compact fluorescent lightbulbs provide a warm, bright appearance and last up to 10 times longer than standard incandescent bulbs.
  5. Fluorescent bulbs use approx. 75% less energy than incandescent and produce very little heat, thus saving you in air conditioning costs.
