The cold-weather season is here and also the potential for increased energy consumption. Below are three simple, strategies you can start putting into practice today for running your air conditioning in the winter.
Open Your Blinds
Saving energy can be as simple as opening and closing your blinds. Leave them open during the day to let sun and heat in, and close them during the night to trap the heat. Consider installing energy-efficient blinds to increase the money-saving effect of this strategy.
Run Your Ceiling Fans Clockwise
Another good idea is running your ceiling fans clockwise. This way cool air go towards the ceiling and warm air is pushed down. During summer, adopt the opposite strategy: run the ceiling fan counter-clockwise so that the blades push cooler air down.
Unplug Energy-Consuming Devices
When it comes to saving energy, you should take advantage of every opportunity to slash down your energy bills. Save energy all-year-round by unplugging appliances that consume a lot of energy. Some examples include:
- Desktop/Laptop computers
- Stereos and radios
