Energy Efficiency Checklist

No one wants to waste energy, but are you doing your part to make sure the systems in your home are running as efficiently as possible? Taking the time to care regularly for your home and keeping your large household appliances clean will help you and your family use energy as efficiently as possible, saving you lots of money over the years. Here's a quick checklist of some of the most important systems in your house, and what you can do to make sure they're operating as efficiently as possible:

•  Check for damaged cords on any electrical appliances
•  Test ground fault interrupters
•  Check smoke and Carbon Monoxide alarms
•  Clean and tune ovens and ranges
•  Clean dehumidifier coils, check operation
•  Clean air conditioning coils, drain pans
•  Clean and tune furnaces, boilers, and hot water heaters
•  Clean underneath and behind the refrigerator, making sure that the coils are clear
•  Check the seals on windows and doors for efficiency in heating and cooling your house
•  Replace cracked glass panes to reduce heating and cooling energy consumption
•  Ensure insulation is in place in attic and elsewhere in the house
