Yesterday’s question was about turning the thermostat down, how much can you save?
If you turn your thermostat down for about 8 hours each day while you are away you will typically see a TEN-PERCENT 10% reduction in your heating and cooling costs. Remember the typical annual heating/air-conditioning bill is $2,200 or by turning down your thermostat you can see a savings of about $220. That’s a good idea!

Today’s first question wants to know which of the following DOES NOT save energy at home? Don’t get tricked, it is asking about NOT saving energy.
- Air drying your clothes
- Turning lights and appliances off when not in the room
- Plugging electronics in a power strip and then turning it off when not in use
- Closing HVAC vents in rooms that are not being used.
Which one of those does not save energy?
