Save energy while on vacation I


f you're planning a vacation this summer, make sure you give your home energy use a break, too. These tips will help you save while


you're away. .


 Water heater. Turn down the temperature, so it doesn’t keep the water warm while you are away.


 Thermostat. Turn up the thermostat on your air conditioning system. You’ll save energy while ensuring your home doesn’t get too warm. During winter, lower the temperature on your furnace. The house can be as cool as 50 degrees without the risk of your pipes freezing.


 Refrigerator. Depending on the food in your fridge, you may be able to turn the thermostat as high as 38 degrees without risking spoilage. 

 Lights. Turn off all lights in your home. You may want to install timers on one or two lights for security.


 Electronics. Unless you’re recording something while away, unplug all of your electronic devices—computer, monitor and printer, TV and cable boxes, DVD player, microwave, and digital clocks. Any electronics with digital displays, instant-on features, or remote controls will consume energy even if they’re not in use.
