Superbowl Sunday is approaching once again. Whether you are an avid football fan or you just watch the game for the commercials, Superbowl parties are a fun tradition. Are you hosting a party this weekend? Party expenses can add up quickly, so here are few tips to help you save energy (and money) during your party.
Turn the heat down Extra bodies will add heat to your home, so you can easily turn the thermostat down a few degrees. In fact, your guests will probably thank you-most parties are much more comfortable with the heat turned down.
However, if it still seems to warm, try turning down the thermostat a little bit more before opening any windows and doors. Opening up windows and doors will cause you to lose heat and energy.
Keep the lights off in other areas of your home-At a Superbowl Party all of your guests will be gathered around the TV. Take advantage of the fact that everybody will be in the same place and turn off the lights in the other unused rooms in your home.
Use the dishwasher-but run a full load! Generally using a full dishwasher is more energy efficient than hand washing dishes, especially with an energy efficient Energy Star dishwasher. So, make life a little easier for yourself and save energy by letting your dishwasher do the work.
With these energy saving tips, you can relax and enjoy the game. Or, relax and enjoy the commercials- it’s up to you! For more information about keeping your home comfortable and energy efficient, contact Flame!
