More Tips to Save More From IDT Energy

Here are some great tips to help you save some money, while using less of the earth’s limited resources.

• Turn off your computers when not in use for an extended amount of time, like at night when you go to sleep.

• Enable “power management” mode on all computers, and be aware that laptops can use up to 90% less energy than desktops.

• Did you know that about 90% of the energy used in a clothes washer goes to heating the water? Wash in cold water whenever possible.

• Keep your clothes dryer running at its most efficient. Clean the lint filter after each use and purchase a dryer with a moisture sensor which automatically turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry.

• A well insulated house can save lots of energy. Check for leaks, fill in cracks and gaps, and add insulation to save up to 20% on the cost of heating and/or cooling your home.

IDT Energy encourages you to try any or all of these simple tips to start saving now.
