Replace your light bulbs with energy efficient CFL ones.
Turn off lights when you leave a room.
Do not keep the TV on as background noise when you are not watching it.
Do you really need it to be on when you are cooking or writing an email? I think not.
Ensure you don’t have phantom electricity loss. Even when unused, plugged in electrical appliances use a small amount of electricity. Either unplug appliances you are not using, or plug them into a power strip and turn off the power strip when you are done.
Wrap up – wear a sweater, a hooded sweat shirt, sweatpants, socks, a plush slipper, and a hat; only after this should you turn on the heat if needed.
Fill up a hot water bag with boiling water and keep it on your lap. It will keep you warm.
Since your room heater heats up the entire room, it uses a lot of energy. Use a directed space heater such as the Presto Heatdish instead.
To raise your internal body temperature, drink something warm, like tea or eat warm food like soup. You won’t need the heater as much if you are warm from the inside.
Hair dryers use a lot of electricity. Dry your hair half way, and then let it air dry. Better yet, don’t wash your hair every day. Some experts say washing hair every day strips away the oil your scalp produces and harms the hair.
Air dry laundry. Hang the wet clothes in hangers in your closet, but keep the closet door open. Don’t do this if you have a mold problem.
Use the light soil wash cycle on your washing machine.
