Plug home electronics, such as TVs and
DVD players, into power strips; turn the
power strips off when the equipment
is not in useâ€”TVs and DVDs in standby
mode still use several watts of power
Drive sensibly; aggressive driving such as speeding, and rapid acceleration and braking, wastes fuel
Look for the ENERGY STARÂ® label on light bulbs, home appliances, electronics, and other products. ENERGY STAR products
meet strict efficiency guidelines.
Turn things off when you are not in the room such as lights, TVs, entertainment systems, and your computer and monitor.
Regularly defrost manual-defrost
freezers and refrigerators; frost
buildup decreases the energy
efficiency of the unit. Donâ€™t allow
frost to build up more than one-
quarter of an inch
Match the size of the pan/pot to the size of the heating element (plate)
