24 Jump to firs page Ducts n Leaks account for 13% of energy use. n Costs $110 per year n Cost $200 to fix n Tape seams u Mastic -- putty u Adhesive foil

25 Hot-Water Space Heating n Check fluid levels regularly n Check expansion tank for air space n Bleed air from all radiators periodically n Insulate pipes n Keep radiators clean n Reflectors on back of radiators

26 Jump to firs page Insulated Pipes

27 Electric Space Heating n Clean heating elements regularly n Check deflectors and aim n Do not block radiators n Check zone thermostat yearly

29 Jump to firs page Insulate your Hot Water Heater

30 Jump to firs page Water temp. 110 to 120

31 Jump to firs page Appliances n Clothes Dryers n Clothes Washers n Dishwashers n Microwaves n Refrigerators n Ranges n Block Heaters

32 Jump to firs page Clothes Dryers n Keep lint filter clean n Operate with full load n Check dryer vent twice a year n Match temp. settings to fabric and load size

33 Jump to firs page Clothes Washer n Wash full loads or use lower water level settings for smaller loads n Use hot water only when necessary n Use cold water rinse cycle n Do not over wash

34 Jump to firs page Dishwasher n Wash full loads n Use shortest wash cycle possible n Use energy saver’ cycle if available n If not available, open door at end of rinse cycle and let dishes air dry

35 Jump to firs page Microwaves n Use for cooking vegetables or warming foods. u Do not use to defrost foods

36 Jump to firs page Refrigerators n Keep door closed (AMAP) n Keep Full and Defrost regularly n Turn off automatic ice maker n Turn off butter conditioner n Thaw food in p. n Cool foods before storing in Frig. n Locate away from heat sources n Clean Coils twice a year -- unplug n 3” air space in back n Keep door gasket in good repair
