Tiffany wrote on Spring Already?: I live in Texas and one day it is hot and the next it is cold. Usually for my family to save energy is setting the thermostat around 70 or 75. It keeps the house cool on hot days and warm on cold days. Also, during the day when we are not home we make sure all the lights are off and all windows are closed so that the house doesn’t get too hot or cold. We put on small lamps instead of the actual light so heat isn’t created and we turn it off when it isn’t being used. Sometimes during the day when the weather is “just right” we open windows and turn the AC off.

Jacqui wrote on What Have You Done to Ensure Your Water Pipes are Efficient and Safe?: Pipe insulation is one of the energy conservation techniques that a lot of people forget about because you don't see your pipes on a day-to-day basis. It is good one to do though both to save money and help reduce our carbon footprint on the environment.
