Use cold water instead of hot when doing loads of laundry; the change in temperature will positively impact the amount of energy used.
-Keep your refrigerator, freezer and oven doors shut so as not to let cool or hot air escape.
-Opt for a shower over a bath if you want to save gallons and gallons of hot water.
-Install fans throughout your house to cut your energy bill dramatically.
-Keep your heating and a/c filters clean. Ask us at RTF Mechanical, Inc. what the proper filter is for your home!
-Fix any leaks. A drop of water every second can result in 165 gallons per month!
-Install showerhead and faucet features that conserve water.
-Do not block vents inside the house with rugs or furniture.
-Set the thermostat as close to the outside temperature as comfortably possible. 78 degrees for the summer and 68 degrees for the winter are ideal.
