** Installing energy efficient ceiling fans in your living spaces will allow you to raise your thermostat without sacrificing your comfort.
** Replace your existing wall switches with dimmer controls. ** Install a timeclock on water heater.
** Install motion activated outdoor lighting.
** Replace incandescent light bulbs with energy-saving and longer lasting compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs).
** Always remember to turn off ceiling fans and lights when not in the room. ** Unplug devices (i.e. cell phone and laptop charging devices and transformers) when not in use. This also protects these devices from lightning strikes.
