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
Take the first step.
Start small. Be conscious of the impact your actions have on the environment and figure out what you can do to lessen the blow. Calculate, conserve, and offset.
