I am a pretty responsible & conservative lady when it comes to consuming energy.
I suppose I have been doing my area to not contribute too much to the growing problem with weather conditions change. However, I suppose I am not doing enough because last month, I gained an SMS from my power company that my energy USAge increased over the previous month. I don’t recall doing anything out of the mediocre that would increase my energy USAge. In fact, I have been using my air conditioner less than I have in previous years. I have been using my fan more during the morning, & I have adjusted the temperature on my temperature control to what is suggested by the Department of Energy. Well, the power company provided some tips on how to conserve energy. They recommended decreasing the temperature control which I already do. Another tip they provided was to avoid using the oven on warmer days & use a grill or the microwave instead. They also mentioned cleaning out the debris from around the Heating & Air Conditioning component to make sure that there is nothing blocking the airflow. Additionally, they commanded to make sure that the air filters are changed & that I get my component serviced by a licensed Heating & Air Conditioning worker! Lastly, they recommended opening windows in the morning & in the night when the temperature is lower. I suppose I will try out the suggestions like using my oven less & opening the windows to see if that makes a difference in my energy USAge. After all, I don’t want to continue to be area of the weather conditions change disaster that both of us are currently in.
