10 ways to reduce your #carbonfootprint while traveling over the #July4th weekend http://t.co/ojTj9xvs5o
Set your thermostat to 78 degrees
*It’s been too long since we posted some nuts-and-bolts conservation tips. So without further ado…*
It’s hot out there. But it doesn’t need to be quite so cool inside. Set your thermostat to turn on the air conditioning at a temperature no lower than 78° F (25° C).
**How this helps**
It simply doesn’t need to be that cold inside. This is an easy way to save energy and money.
*Pro:* You’ll save up to 3% of your annual energy bill per degree fahrenheit raised.
*Con:* You might have to take your sweater off when you’re indoors.
* Get a programmable thermostat
* Turn off your air conditioning at night time or when you leave the house
* Open the windows to cool off
