  • 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.
