Ocean Breeze  - The HEAT is ON!
There are lots of ways to save money on your home energy bills!
HEAT and A/C:
Heating your home is the largest user of energy. About 40% of your total home energy bill goes into heating.
 
*Set your thermostat at 68 degrees when home and 65 when away for a short time
 
*If away from home five hours or more, lower it to 58 degrees. You use much less energy to heat  the house back up than to keep it heated when away!!
 
*Turn down the heat a few degrees when home
 
*Clean or replace the furnace filter often during the heating season
 
*Have your heating system tuned and inspected by a professional before each heating season. These losses from a poorly maintained system add up over time- sometimes at a rate of 1-2% a year!
 
*Close attic, basement, garage and/or exterior doors to prevent drafts
 
 
 
 
YOUR WATER HEATER:
 
* Set your water heater temp at 120 degrees.
 
*Take a shower instead of a bath, it uses less water.
 
*Install a low flow aerator or flow restrictor to shower heads.  It uses less water and these are easy to install.
