17 Ways to Save on Energy

 

1.     Get a home energy audit every couple of years with your power company to find ways to cut costs.
2.
     Check with your utility company for rebates whenever you install energy-saving equipment.

3.     Add more energy-efficient insulation to your attic, with the appropriate R-value, or resistance to heat flow, for your climate and the type of heating in your house.

4.     Turn down your home thermostat two degrees and save 24 kilowatt hours a month. It might not sound like much, but it adds up.

5.     Buy a programmable thermostat, especially if your home is vacant most of the day. Set it to turn on a half hour before anyone arrives home.

6.     Adjust your thermostat to a comfortable temperature and wait. Turning your thermostat up or down dramatically wastes energy and increases your heating costs.

7.     Lower your hot water thermostat 10 degrees, but no lower than 120 degrees. You'll still get all the hot water you need and save 25 kilowatt hours a month.

8.     Fix leaky faucets - one drip a second is 20 kilowatts a month

9.     Invest in weather-stripping kits if you've got drafty doors.

10.   Trade your standard candescent bulbs for compact fluorescent bulbs. They are more energy-efficient, last for years instead of months, consume little power and generate little heat.

11.   Turn off your computer when not in use, or use the energy-saving "sleep" mode.

12.   Seal energy leaks. Caulk over cracks and small holes around windows and exterior walls. Look carefully around plumbing pipes, telephone wires, dryer vents, sink and bathtub drains and under countertops.

13.   Participate in your power company's special energy-saving program. Some programs shut down electric appliances for short bursts of time during peak hours. You hardly notice the difference - except in your bill.

14.   Buy major appliances that sport the "Energy Star" sticker. That shows the appliance meets or exceeds standards set by the U.S. Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency.

15.   Consider a front-loading washing machine. They use 50% less energy and 1/3rd less water. Plus, they remove far more water in the rinse cycle, and that translates into big savings in dryer time.

16.   When building a home or replacing a roof, select a roof based on energy efficiency than on how it looks. Light-colored roofs, such as white, galvanized metal or cement tile, do the best job of reflecting the sun, and cool quickly at night.

17.   Landscaping with the right mix of trees and shrubs can lower your energy bills by blocking winter winds or the summer sun.

Memorial Day Facts

 

-          Memorial Day is a patriotic holiday in the United States of America, usually celebrated on the last Monday in May.

-          It is a celebration of remembrance for the brave service of men and women who gave their lives for their country. Originally, Memorial Day honored those who died in the Civil War. Now, it honors those who died in the Spanish-American War, World War I, World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam and Desert Storm.

-          Memorial Day was declared a federal holiday in 1971. We now, designate this day to remember loved ones who have passed on, as well as remembering our service men and women. Flowers and flags are placed on graves in remembrance of them. Parades and dedications of memorials usually are part of the day's activities. Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, local marching bands, members of the armed service, fire departments, police departments, and fraternal orders often march in parades and attend ceremonies to commemorate the day.

-          Waterloo, N.Y. is considered the birthplace of this holiday because the people of Waterloo were the first people to proclaim a day on May 5, 1866 to honor soldiers who died in the Civil War. They closed their businesses and placed flowers and flags on the graves of their soldiers. Flags were flown at half-mast.

-          Major General John A. Logan declared May 30, 1868 as a special day for honoring Union soldiers killed in battle. He was Commander in Chief of an organization of Union Civil War Veterans called the Grand Army of the Republic. They took charge of Memorial Day celebrations in the Northern States. The American Legion took over these duties after World War I.

-          The Southern States of Alabama and Mississippi observe the last Monday in April as Confederate Memorial Day. Georgia observes April 26, North and South Carolina observe May 10, Virginia observes the last day of May. Louisiana and Tennessee observe June 3 and Texas celebrates Confederate Heroes Day, January 19.
