Make Energy Conservation Part of Your New Years Resolutions
Now that 2024 is officially in full swing, how are you doing with your New Year's resolutions? Here’s one you’ll want to keep, from your friends at Woodruff Energy: energy conservation! Practicing energy conservation at home will help reduce your home’s carbon emissions and lower your annual energy costs. And let's face it, everyone can use some extra savings heading into the new year!
We asked our team of energy experts at Woodruff Energy to come up with a list of their favorite conservation tips to help our customers save this winter.
Winter Conservation Tips:
- Naturally Heat Your Home: Open your curtains and shades during the day to allow sunlight to heat your home. And remember to close them at night to block the chill from cold windows.
- Switch Direction of Ceiling Fans: If you have ceiling fans in your home, switch them to spin in a clockwise direction. This will create an updraft and circulate warm air around the room.
- Seal Air Leaks: Check around your windows and doors for air leaks and replace cracked or broken weather stripping to reduce cold drafts.
- Maintain your Heating System: Make sure your heating equipment has been inspected and tested by the experts at Woodruff Energy. This will help protect against mid-winter breakdowns and improve your energy efficiency.
Energy conservation will not only save you money, but it will also reduce your carbon footprint! It truly is the gift that keeps on giving.
