We are looking out for you! Follow these energy tips for energy optimization and efficiency.
If your vehicle is in contact with a power line, stay inside the car. Warn others not to touch the car or the power line.
When weather is mild, use fans instead of the air conditioner. Your central air conditioner will use about 100 times more energy than a fan at medium speed.
Don’t choose a lower air conditioning temperature when you first turn it on. It won’t cool faster – whenever it’s running it’s cooling as fast as it can.
Plant shade trees. Outside shade can reduce air conditioning costs 30%. Shade on the east and west is most important.
