We’re always trying to transform ourselves. Whether it’s by eating healthier, exercising more or building up a savings account, many of us refocus on priorities and personal aspirations at the start of a new year.
As we begin 2020, consider adding a resolution to be more energy efficient. Making small changes can make a big difference in saving energy and money. And the good news is JOEMC is here to help you along the way, making this one resolution that’s easy to keep.
HERE ARE A FEW IDEAS TO GET YOU STARTED:
- Adjust your thermostat
Keeping your thermostat at 68 degrees or the lowest comfortable setting during colder months saves energy and prevents your heating system from working too hard. Installing a smart thermostat can help you make adjustments automatically.
- Change your HVAC system’s filters regularly
This improves system performance, saving both energy and money.
- Switch to LED lights
According to energy.gov, ENERGY STAR-qualified LEDs use 75 percent less energy and last up to 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs.
