Energy Saving 101

The old maxim “less is more” surprisingly applies to the HVAC and plumbing world. The less energy you use, the more energy you save, and ultimately the more money in your pocket. Energy conservation is easy and only requires a willing will, and an open mind.

Brush your Teeth with Money

No, literally this is impossible or at the very least impractical. But when you brush your teeth and leave the faucet on you are literally flushing money down the drain. Turning off the water when brush your teeth can save you a few extra bucks a week. And, you should feel better about yourself because you’re no longer wasting enough water to fill Shamoo’s tank in a year’s time.

Leaking Dollar Bills

Again, it is impossible for a faucet to literally leak dollar bills (at least as far as I know). But, it can be a huge waste of water and therefore drive up your water bill and end up costing you money. If you have a leaky faucet, repair it or call someone who can. Parker and Sons Trust Certified plumbers are a safe bet when dealing with a leaky faucet.

Ideal Refrigerator Temperature

Your refrigerator should remain between 37 and 40 degrees. Anything less than that will be a huge drain on energy. What’s worse, it will make your food taste terrible. So if you are trying to save energy avoid sacrificing the refrigerator temperature and thus the quality of your food. Hey! Is your refrigerator running? Is at an ideal temperature?
