在家里明智地使用能量

以下是一些步骤,您可以采取更高的节能,从而降低加热和冷却账单,同时节省资源。

门和窗户:

  • 检查泄漏和草稿并添加天气stripping as needed.
  • 在窗户上安装窗帘

Furnaces and Water Heaters:

  • 用新的高效型号替换效率低下炉和热水器。
  • 如果购买新的炉子,请勿比您需要更大。
  • 将热水锅炉包裹在绝缘夹克中。
  • 强制空气炉上清洁过滤器

Insulation:

  • 绝缘更老的未绝缘房屋。
  • If your home already has some insulation, consider increasing the amount of insulation in the attic and insulation to floors over a basement or crawlspace.

各种各样的:

  • 安装低流量淋浴头。
  • 安装将自动降低夜间温度的恒温器。
  • Use ceiling fans to circulate air in the house, keeping the air mixed. Seal flues in unused fireplaces.
  • Conduct an “energy audit” of your home to evaluate your heating system's efficiency and determine where heat loss may be occurring. Many fuel dealers and utility providers offer these audits as a free service. You can also perform your own home energy audit on the Internet by going to the Department of Energy's Web site athttp://www.homeenergysaver.lbl.gov并遵循在那里找到的说明。
