Short Description:
If you are interested in saving money on your electric bills, this publication is for you. You'll learn which appliances use the most electricity and how you can modify the ways you use them to lower your electric costs. There is information on lighting, water heaters, washers and dryers, space heaters, refrigerators and "phantom power," the power that is used by electronic devices even when they are off. You'll find simple tips such as switching to compact fluorescent light bulbs, putting a timer on your water heater, installing low-flow shower heads and using power strips to turn off several appliances at once, as well as advice on replacing old appliances with new, energy-efficient ones. There is even a checklist to help you with your home audit.
