Adjusting the Ceiling Fan

Certainly, a ceiling fan is an attractive item to have in a home. But, it can also help to distribute the cool air in the summertime and the warm air in the winter. In the summertime, a homeowner should adjust a ceiling fan to turn in a counter-clockwise direction. The fan’s paddles will force the air downward making a room feel cooler. Alternatively, in the wintertime, a homeowner should adjust a fan to operate in a clockwise motion. This directs the warm air down into a room. In short, a ceiling fan helps a home’s heating and cooling system to be more energy efficient which results in a reasonable utility bill each month.

Turn Off the Computer at Night

Many people put their computers in sleep mode instead of turning them off at night. Unfortunately, a computer in sleep mode is still using electricity. A household can save money on the power bill by turning computers off and unplugging them at night. A homeowner can learn about other energy saving tips from businesses such as Palmco.

Unplug the Media Center

In many cases, a household has more than just a TV in one area of a room. The DVD player, video games and cable box are also hooked up with the TV. A household can save electricity and, in turn, save on the power bill by unplugging the TV and all the items that go along with it.

Examine the Refrigerator Door

There are many homeowners who may not give much thought to the condition of their refrigerator door. But, it’s a good idea to examine the condition of this door. If the seal is damaged or the door is not closing all the way, it can allow cool air to leak out. This means that the refrigerator has to work harder to supply adequate cold air to its interior. A secure refrigerator door allows this important device to be energy efficient.

Finally, homeowners who put just a few of these ideas into practice may see significant savings on their monthly power bill.

    Great points on saving energy.to unplug appliances. I do the little ones like the toaster and sometimes the coffee pot. Shutting down the computers in the house is a good tip we can start to do. As for unplugging the TV, I think that would cause some setting problems in my house, but I get the whole not drawing power when not in use idea.
