Spooky Energy Savings

Spooky Energy Savings

This spooky season, we’re sharing a few energy-saving tricks so you can treat yourself to lower energy bills. Here are four simple ways to summon the spirit of energy efficiency.

  1. Conjure instant savings with a smart thermostat. One of the easiest ways to save energy is through thermostat control, since home heating and cooling account for a large portion or monthly energy use. Smart thermostats can help you manage heating and cooling costs by learning your daily routine and adjusting the temperature settings accordingly. You can control a smart thermostat from anywhere (through your smartphone), which allows you to prevent unnecessary energy consumption while you’re away. Sorcery!

  2. Get rid of goosebumps by eliminating ghostly drafts. The winter chill is just around the corner, so now is the time to seal air leaks around your home. Apply caulk and weatherstripping around drafty windows and doors to make your home more comfortable and lower energy use.
  3. Illuminate your lair with energy-efficient lighting. LED bulbs use 75% less energy and last 25 times longer than incandescent light bulbs. Make the switch to reduce energy used for lighting. Remember to use LEDs when it’s time to decorate for the upcoming holiday season. LED light strings offer an average of 88% energy savings compared to traditional incandescent light strings.

  4. Stir up savings with counter-top cauldrons. Cooler weather summons our favorite soup recipes. Small countertop appliances like slow  cookers use less energy than cooking meals on the stovetop. Grab your book of spells (or recipes), and start stirring up savings in the kitchen.

When we look around our homes, there are so many opportunities to save  energy. So this spooky season, investigate your space, and unlock a different kind of magic - the kind that brings real energy savings
