Energy Saving Tips for the Environment and Your Pocket Book

Do you know how much electricity and money it takes to run your home appliances? To assist in conserving energy, the LADWP offers the following tips to live a more energy efficient lifestyle at home.

More Energy Saving Tips

Be aware of “Energy Vampires.” Any appliance with a clock or ”instant on” setting is an “Energy Vampire” when it uses electricity 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Unplug all non-essential appliances and electronics when not in use. Consider installing an advanced power strip, which automatically turns off idle electronics.
 

Limit the use of appliances during peak hours of the day — use washing machines, dishwashers, vacuum cleaners, and other heavy appliances during evening hours.
 

Ventilate your home in the late evening by opening windows and balcony doors to clear out the heat and allow cooler air to circulate.
 

LADWP offers rebates for qualified thermostats, LED light bulbs, LED televisions, and advanced power strips through its Efficient Product Marketplace. Visit www.ladwp.com/epm for more information.
