Improving Energy Efficiency in Your House

An energy-efficient home is not only more economical; its also healthier. Causes of poor air quality such as humidity, drafts, cold windows in the winter or hot windows in the summer, are all lessened by improvements in energy-efficiency.

Here are some tips on keeping your home efficient and healthy.

 

Kitchen

  • Defrost your freezer if the ice is 5mm thick
  • Keep refrigerator condenser coil free from dust by vacuuming frequently
  • Make sure the on/off cycle of your refrigerator works properly
  • Use the kettle, not microwave, to heat small amounts of water
  • Use only the amount of water in the refrigerator for drinking
  • Use cooking utensils that have a flat base and tight sealing lids
  • Check the oven seal for leaking heat
  • Run only full loads in the dishwasher

Laundry Room

  • Set the hot water heater thermostat to no more than 65 degrees Celsius
  • Insulate hot water pipes well
  • Turn off hot water system if you're going on vacation
  • Repair leaking hot water taps
  • Have hot water heater checked periodically  by a professional
  • Use cold water to wash clothes when possible
  • Don't overload the clothes dryer
  • Clean lint filter from dryer after each use

April Garden Checklist

Early April

  • Plant some garden peas
  • If the danger of frost is over in your area, plant fuchsias, pelargoniums and geraniums
  • Start the brightening up by planting annuals and perennials

Mid April

  • Got roses? Now is the time to feed them to increase the number and size of your blooms
  • If you know of dry spots in your garden, plant drought resistant, attractive shrubs like crape myrtle, oleander, wild lilac and rosemary
  • For sunny, hot locations in the garden try geraniums

Mid to Late April

  • Plant gardenia shrubs in a warm, sunny corner for sweet scent and lovely flowers
  • Begin mulching in flowerbeds around shrubs and annuals to conserve moisture and reduce weeds
  • Try planting petunias about now. For more blooming, pull off dead blooms every day
  • If deciduous flowering shrubs have bloomed, its the best time to prune them
  • When camellias, azaleas and rhododendrons stop blooming, feed them with acid fertilizer.

Late April

  • Feed the lawn
  • Prune flowers, shrubs and trees
  • Watch for moth damage
  • Control slugs, earwigs and aphids
  • Plant seeds and seedlings.
