Tips on Saving Energy

With the raising costs that are hitting all of us what can you do to reduce your energy use and try to save your money:
1: Switch your light bulbs to new CFL(compact Flourescent) bulbs, you can save up to 45% on your lighting, these bulbs cost a little more but they also last longer than regular bulbs.
2: Plan your trip so you don't back track, avoid area's that you know have traffic issues to avoid idleing, this will save you gas.
3: Unplug un-used appliances, a lot of appliances and electronics use electricity even in the off mode.
4: Turn your heater down in the winter, use a sweater.
5: Summer time keep hydrated to stay cool and use less air conditioning
6: Turn the hot water heater down in your house, you won't even notice but heating it a few degree's less can make a differance.
7: Purchase new appliances with the Energy Star Rating, these will use much less energy than your old appliances.
8: Use rechargable batteries (saves money and is better for environment)

Good Luck, let me know of any other idea's you might have.
