Smart Ways to Save – Sage Advice from IDT Energy

IDT Energy understands that you have to wash the clothes and keep the house cool; at the same time, they want you to do so without wasting your hard-earned money.

Here are some helpful tips from IDT Energy, and other sources, for cutting down on your energy bill and consumption.

Using the “sleep” feature to power down your home office equipment and other electronic devices can save your household as much as $70 each year.  That may not sound like a lot of savings – but it’s more than nothing, and it’s a lot if you think of the entire country doing it simultaneously!

Replacing old model air conditioners with Energy Star units can actually cut your cooling bills by 20% or more, while still cooling the house in the same fashion.

When you wash your clothing, 4/5 of the energy comes from the water you heat.  The U.S. Department of Energy advises that you can use warm or even cool water instead, and can save money and energy while still getting your clothes just as clean!
