Energy Deregulation in short:

Learn how you can maximize your
savings by making changes in the
way you use your appliances and
energy. Our energy consulting group
focuses on methods to reduce energy
waste that involve creating habits to
reduce waste, along with ensuring your
home or apartment is not causing energy
to be wasted due to faulty structures
or overlooked energy drains.

Understanding your the largest drains
of energy can allow us focus on where
we may be wasting the most. As we review
our largest energy drains, we can begin to
rethink our energy usage and understand the
measures required to reduce these costs as
well as reduce waste.

Top energy allocations

Cooling and heating: 47% of energy use
Water heater: 14% of energy use
Washer and dryer: 13% of energy use
Lighting: 12% of energy use
Refrigerator: 4% of energy use
Electric oven: 3-4% of energy use
TV, DVD, cable box: 3% of energy use
Dishwasher: 2% of energy use
Computer: 1% of energy use

The Breakdown

It's no surprise that cooling
and heating make up the largest energy
allocation, using air conditioning to
remain cool in the summer, and conversely
using your heating system to remain warm
during the winter. By focusing on efficient
temperature control the cost of heating and
cooling can decrease drastically.

Simple yet effective tips for staying cool in the summer include:

Switching to darker blinds to reduce greenhouse heat
Keeping the cool air in during the day by keeping the windows closed
Keep cooking to a minimum, or for smaller meals choose a toaster over
Taking cool/cold showers can keep you cool for hours
Sealing cracks in window seals and around door frames to prevent cool air from escaping
Reducing clutter to allow air to flow more freely
Clean your fan blades to maximize out put
Wear looser clothing, preferably cotton
Minimize indoor lighting to keep the room ambient temperature low
Soak your feet in cool water when relaxing outdoors to reduce the need for A/C once inside
Hack: place sheets in freezer for up to ten minutes before bed. Put sheet in freezer bag first.

Simple yet effective tips for staying warm in the winter include:

Keep windows and doors closed when possible
Wear socks at all times to retain body heat
Use thick blinds to reduce the cooling of the surrounding air
Opt for hot soups and hot tea or coffee to stay warm
Using space heaters when you generally spend time in one room
Program your thermostat to run on a regular daily schedule
Drink warm water
Layer your clothing, and be sure to keep wool or silk as the layer closest to your skin to reduce dryness
Close doors for rooms that are rarely used
Spend time together; being in the same room as others allows more heat to be centralized in one location
Be mindful of any cracks or openings that can allow warm air to escape through

These are some simple steps we can each take to reduce energy waste and increase efficiency, however more advanced and specific recommendations require more personalized information. For a consultation request a quote.
