As temperatures flip from warm to cool this year, so do some of the ways we conserve energy.
Here are a few tips to help you transition from conserving energy in warm weather, to conserving energy in cooler temperatures.
When it’s hot, setting your temperature to 78 degrees is the most energy efficient. When it’s cold, lowering the thermostat to 68 degrees helps to save energy.
As temperatures rise, shutting the curtains helps keep the heat out. As temperatures drop, open the curtains and let the sun naturally help heat your home.
Lastly, don’t forget to run your fan in the right direction! As it gets warmer, fans should spin in a counter-clockwise motion to create a cooling effect. As it gets cooler, remember to reverse your fan! Fans spinning in a clockwise motion at a low speed will gently draw cool air in the room up and force warm air down.
