and save on energy costs at the same time by following these simple tips:
- Replace all incandescent bulbs to CFL's or LED's. There is a 75% energy savings.
- Use cold water and organic or natural ingredients when doing your laundry.
- Avoid leaving lights on when you leave a room.
- Shut down computers and televisions rather than setting them to 'sleep' mode.
- Shut off the water when brushing your teeth.
- Cool your home at 78° with the thermostat fan switched to auto. Raise your thermostat to 82° when you're away.
- Reduce your water heater temperature to 120° and you can save about $7 a month.
- Replace the A/C filter once a month to help your unit run more efficiently. (Preventative maintenance is done on a monthly basis)
- Turn off ceiling fans when they are not in use.
- Use your dishwasher to conserve energy and skip the rinse/dry cycle.
- Clean the lint filter in your clothes dryer before every use.
- Use a reusable tote bag at the supermarket instead of plastic bags.
- Dispose of old electronics at any local Best Buy Store through their consumer electronics recycling programs. Toner cartridges, rechargeable batteries, cables, cords and wires can be dropped inside the kiosks just inside the entrance.
- Print on both sides of paper and use color only if necessary.
- Make online payments. All residents are encouraged to make payments online (free of charge) right from our website. Registration is easy and immediate!
