Energy-Efficient Tips for Homeowners:
Save Money at Home While You Travel
Whether you’re gone for a long weekend or a weeks-long extravaganza this summer, try these before you go.
- Turn your water heater down to a low or “Vacation” setting.
- Unplug electronics you won’t need: computers, power strips,
chargers, TV, (especially remote-controlled electronics)
to stop “stand-by” electricity drain.
- Set your thermostat higher in summer; some HVACs
can automatically run the fan every hour,
so the house is less “stale.”
- Draw the shades in sunny rooms.
- Use LED bulbs in all security lighting.
What is Xeriscaping?
Xeriscaping is using drought-resistant plants and native trees in your landscaping.
The main principles of xeriscaping are to plan and design for smart water use. These include:
- Improving the soil quality
- Reduce turf and other water-wasting plants
- Selecting the right plants
- Watering efficiently
- Adding mulch
- Maintaining your landscape
