There are many ways that you can help to conserve energy in your home, and many are DIY that don't cost much money
- Replace inefficient light bulbs with LEDs (using 90% less power and lasting 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs) or CFLs (they use 75% less electricity and last 10 times longer than incandescent) - we have switched all of our bulbs
- Dry clothing outside using a drying rack or clothesline instead of using your dryer (as an added bonus, sunlight is a great stain remover - a trick I learned when Mr. K was a baby and I had many poop stained baby clothes and cloth diapers) - I am trying to get into this habit in the summer, and use the heat and wind to dry many of our items
- Add motion sensors or automatic timers for lights to go on and off when someone enters the room. This can eliminate the need for lights to be on all the time, and also helps when people forget to turn lights off as they leave a room - this is something we haven't done. I think it will be next on the list
- Ceiling Fan installing Energy Star ceiling fans in your house can help to keep cool in the hot/humid months and they are 50% more energy efficient than older light/fan combinations. We have a ceiling fan over our stairs, and we find a huge difference when we actually remember to use it
