If you are working from home, it may be easy to forget that you’re using more energy than you have before. When it comes to saving energy and thus money, try to apply the principles you’ve learned from past energy-saving tips.
- Turn off all the lights and appliances in the rooms you are not inhabiting during the day.
- Place your thermostat at an even temperature that won’t make your heater or air conditioning kick on often. Better yet, if you can turn it off altogether, you should.
- Open all blinds or windows to get the best use of daylight.
- Don’t leave your refrigerator open for extended periods of time when you are deciding what to snack on.
These are small ways to save energy, but in a warming climate and more time at home, every little bit counts, especially for your wallet.
