调节恒温器

断电

关闭或设置办公设备在不使用时的电源. Turning off one computer and monitor nightly and on weekends can save up to $80 a year. 设置电脑, monitors and copiers to use sleep mode when not in use can help cut energy costs by up to 50 percent. 使用电源插座或拔掉数码录像机等电子设备的插头, 游戏机和电视即使关机也会耗电.

调低热水器上的恒温器

120°F对于大多数常见用途是足够的. 降低10华氏度可以节省高达5%的水加热成本. 这只会影响燃气的使用,除非你的热水器是电的.

在正确的设备上流式传输

当流式传输内容时, choose the smallest device that makes sense for the number of people watching. Game consoles can use 10 times more power than streaming through a tablet or laptop.

K保持炉子清洁

每月检查一次炉膛过滤器,并定期更换. A dirty air filter can increase your energy costs and cause problems with your equipment.

升级你的照明

还有LED灯泡, 使用“能源之星”灯具, 哪种能源消耗更少,产生的热量更少.

使用小家电

Instead of using the oven, use small appliances such as a microwave, toaster oven or slow cooker. 他们使用更少的能源,不会给你的家增加太多的热量.

保持冰箱满

一个满的冰箱比一个空的更有效率. 把冷的东西放在一起,让冰箱和冰柜保持凉爽. Consider storing a supply of emergency water to keep your fridge full.

最大化使用洗碗机

使用游泳池或水疗中心的盖子

盖子可以减少高达90%的热量损失.

安装占用传感器

These inexpensive devices can reduce lighting costs by up to 40 percent.

投资节能设备

季节性的技巧

 阻挡热量

Weather strip and caulk drafty doors and windows to keep the cold air in and hot air out. 在白天最热的时候,盖上窗户以阻挡太阳的热量. If you can, open windows at night and early mornings to let the cool air in.

保持你的空调合适

每1-2个月检查一次空调的过滤器. Dirty filters cause your system to work harder to keep you cool, wasting energy.

不要被热水烫伤

如果可能的话,把热水器上的恒温器调到华氏120度. You’ll not only save energy; you’ll avoid scalding your hands.

led假日照明

在假期里, 用LED灯装饰, 哪种节日灯比白炽灯节能90%. Save even more by setting a timer to keep displays on only when people are seeing them. 

减少池过滤时间

冬季尽量减少泳池的过滤和清扫.

调节恒温器

Set the thermostat at 68 degrees during the day and lower at night, if health permits. Lowering the thermostat three to five degrees can save up to 10 percent on heating costs.

完成年度维护

修理漏水的水龙头和管道. Hot water leaks cause increased demand on the water heater which increases natural gas use. 别忘了检查通风管道是否漏水. 漏水的管道会增加10%到30%的供暖成本.

寻找漏气处

Install proper caulking and weather-stripping; this can save roughly 10 to 15 percent on heating bills.

注意您的使用和生成

You can track your excess energy generation that goes out to the grid, 以及你在“我的账户”里的收入. While seasonal fluctuations are to be expected — your solar system’s output will naturally go down in the winter when there are fewer daylight hours — a professional may be able to diagnose a non-seasonal drop.​

年度检查

Be sure to keep up with basic maintenance and annual checkups with a professional to make sure your system is operating at full capacity. Check with your installer to see if your package includes maintenance. 特别是太阳能电池板,几乎不需要维护, 但偶尔的清洁和检查将最大限度地节省你的钱.​
