Let’s do two questions on our quiz today!

Yesterday’s question was about turning the thermostat down, how much can you save?

CORRECT answer……………….:

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.

  1. Air drying your clothes
  2. Turning lights and appliances off when not in the room
  3. Plugging electronics in a power strip and then turning it off when not in use
  4. Closing HVAC vents in rooms that are not being used.

Which one of those does not save energy?

Second question for today.

What kind of HEAT PUMP uses the constant temperature located just below the ground to heat and cool homes?

  1. Air
  2. Water
