Four Forgotten Energy Saving Tips

April 13, 2014

energy saving tips

When it comes to saving energy in your home, the basics are fairly easy to turn into habits. This includes turning off the lights when leaving a room, closing doors and windows, monitoring your thermostat, etc. But we could always use more energy saving tips. What else can you do to make your home smarter and more energy efficient? Thomas & Betts Corporation has been a global leader in the electrical power industry for over 100 years so they know a thing or two about saving energy. They reminded us about the four “forgotten” energy saving tips most people don’t think about:

  1. Replace your light bulbs with flourescent bulbs.
  2. Clean out your refrigerator by vacuuming dust and removing residue from the coils to ensure your fridge stays cool.
  3. Replace extension cords with a floor box because the cords lose energy when it’s continuously plugged into appliances.
  4. As summer approaches, airflow can escape through small entry points in your home (see image below). Sealing electrical boxes is more efficient and will make your home cooler in the summer (vice versa for winter).
