Energy Efficiency Tips

HUEE members recognize that it is in our best interest to help our customers use less energy to aid in securing our energy future, be more environmentally responsible and lower customer costs.

Follow these tips to save on energy costs:

  • Replace and recycle your old refrigerator and purchase energy-efficient models. Units only 10 years old can use twice as much electricity as a new ENERGY STAR® labeled model.

  • Insulate ceilings to R-38 levels if your attic has less than R-19.

  • Caulk windows, doors and anywhere air leaks in or out. Do not caulk around water heater and furnace exhaust pipes.

  • Weather-strip around windows and doors.

  • Wrap heating and cooling ducts with duct wrap, or use mastic sealant.

  • Install energy-saver showerheads.

  • When buying new appliances, be sure to purchase energy-efficient ENERGY STAR® labeled models.
