Every day we make choices in our lives that affect the environment, the climate, and other species. Science is telling us that we need to live more sustainably, which means using resources today in a way that maintains their supplies for the future. Whether you’re looking to save the planet or save some money, changing your daily energy usage habits is the perfect place to start.
We’ve put together a few habits that will help you start saving energy straight away:
Unplug appliances when not in use
Even turned off, many appliances keep drawing power. The same goes for all those chargers — whether or not a device is charging.
Replace old appliances with energy-efficient ones
Choosing an energy-efficient appliance for your home can lead to hundreds of dollars saved per year – as well as great energy performance.
Do regular maintenance of air conditioning and heating system
A/C systems spend a lot of energy to cool down or heat your house. However, if you keep them clean and in the proper condition, they will work better.
