11 Indoor Clothes Drying Area
Setting aside a space inside to hang your clothes on an airer will make it easier for you to stop using the dryer and all that extra power.
12 Turn Off Your Home Office
When working from home you need a break from the office too, even if you just close the door to the spare room and forget about it for the weekend. Well, while you’re forgetting about work, unplug all of your office equipment on the weekend too.
13 Unplug Your Home Office
If your home office doesn’t run at the same pace as an inner-city business then you don’t need to be using the same amount of power either. Therefore, if you’re not printing anything unplug your printer, if you’re not scanning anything unplug your scanner, if you’re not using your audio equipment then unplug your speakers.
14 Turn Off and Turn In
Before you go to bed it will cost you nothing to double check that all lights, TVs and electrical equipment are turned off.
15 Use Your Front Door Not Your Garage Door
Your garage door opener uses power every time you come and go from your house. Therefore, if you’re stopping at home quickly leave your car in the driveway instead of opening and closing the garage door. Plus, if you have an entrance to your home from your garage, use it, instead of opening and closing the garage door for your car, and again for yourself.
16 Turn Off Your Computer
A simple money saving habit to get into and one which will save you a fortune in power you’re just wasting when your computer sits idle.
17 Not a Fan
If you are cooling off in front of a fan, make sure to turn it off when you leave the room. A fan is only going to make you feel cooler when you are in front of it and leaving it on when you’re not there is not going to lower the temperature of your home.
18 Turn Off Appliances When You Leave
If you’re not watching the TV remember to turn it off, same too for your computer and games console. You can turn them right back on when you return.
19 Transfer From Freezer to Fridge
If you plan out the next several meals you can transfer all that food from your freezer to your fridge at once. Opening your freezer less will mean it doesn’t have to work as hard as if the door was regularly being opened.
20 Christmas Lights Light Up the Night
Don’t leave your Christmas lights running during the day – no one can see them. Also make sure to wait until it’s actually dark to turn them on at night.
