Tips for Energy Conservation  - Lighting  & Laundry
 
Lighting
  • Use fluorescent bulbs where possible. They give 5 times the light and last 10 times longer than incandescent (ordinary) bulbs.
  • Use correct wattage; six 25 watt bulbs=same light as one 100 watt bulb, and six bulbs use more energy than one.
  • Dirt absorbs light--keep lights clean.
  •  
Laundry
  • Wash and dry only full loads.
  • Use cold water.
  • Dry only as long as necessary--don't over dry.
  • Remove clothes immediately to reduce wrinkling and ironing.
  • Use a clothesline
  • Keep lint screens clean.
  • Dry in consecutive loads while drier is warm.
  • Don't use too much soap--this makes washer work harder.
