Energy-Saving Tips for Fall

Fall is a beautiful time of year, especially in the Cape Cod area. Customers of Falmouth can enjoy the season even more when they use these easy tricks to save energy! Continue reading to learn about how you can use less energy this season, which translates directly to money back in your bank account.

Install Covers on Keyholes and Mail Slots

If you have slots in your door, heat is escaping 24 hours a day. It’s simple and inexpensive to install covers over the gaps, sealing them tight and keeping that heat inside where it belongs.

Bundle Up at Night

Turning your thermostat down when you go to bed doesn’t only give you a cooler room to sleep in: it can save you a lot on your energy bill. For every degree you lower your thermostat, you save about 2% on your energy bill. That means turning your thermostat down five degrees will save you 10%!

Schedule a Tune-Up

Tune-ups help your equipment to run at peak efficiency, making them work easier and better. When your system doesn’t have to think too hard, it can produce more heat at less cost to you. Schedule your fall tune-up with us today, and we’ll make you the priority and book your appointment right away.

Do Full Loads of Laundry in Cold Water

Running your washer and dryer uses a lot of energy – so you shouldn’t do laundry when you only have half of a load. The heat it takes to warm the water is expensive, too, so make sure to wash your clothes in cold water to maximize efficiency. And did you know, washing your clothes in cold water protects the dyes and fibers, making them last longer?
