The products listed at
left are a few more ways to save or reclaim energy or water.
To reiterate suggestions we've
provided on other pages:
Consider using a
clothesline instead of a clothes dryer.
Turn lights off when you
are not using them!
Replace older incandescent
fixtures with compact fluorescent lights.
Manage your thermostat wisely.
Don't overheat in winter and overcool in winter. As a rule of thumb the energy
required is measured by the square of the difference between inside and
outside temperature. This means a 4 degree difference is a power factor of 16
and an 8 degree difference is a power factor of 64! The bigger the difference
the more energy required.
Use insulating curtains
use temporary shrink-plastic
window applications to make a storm window
Close off rooms and areas of
your house you don't use. If there's no door, even a thin plastic drop
sheet will make a barrier to heat and cold.
Avoid Phantom loads,
use power bars to turn things
if you're designing a home or
cottage add switches for all your kitchen's electrical plugs
don't design light switches to
turn on multiple lights each time if you probably only need one.
don't leave those "wall warts"
or cube transformers plugged in when you're not using them.
treat customers in the way we would like to be treated.
