10 Jun Making Your Bedroom More Energy Efficient
Ah, your bedroom. More often than not, this is the one room in your house where you’re most comfortable and happiest. While you’ve probably taken measures to make it cozy with soft blankets, pretty decorations, and just the right pillows, have you thought about making it more energy efficient?
Believe it or not, there are several things you can do to make your bedroom better for the environment and your energy bill.
Watch the Thermostat
You may like feeling toasty when you sleep, but cranking your thermostat up too high can make for higher utility bills and waste energy in general. Instead of keeping your thermostat at a very high or low temperature, just adjust the number of blankets you use — use more in the winter and only a thin one in summer.
You can only use warmer, thicker sheets in winter and wear lighter pajamas in summer. All these little changes can make for big energy improvements.
Unplug Your Chargers
Most people leave their laptop, phone, and other chargers plugged in even when they’re not using them. The thing is, those chargers can use electricity even if they’re not actively charging a device. Once you’re done charging a device, unplug the charger to avoid using excess electricity.
Add a Ceiling Fan
Another way to cut back on how often you use your HVAC system in your bedroom is by installing a ceiling fan. When the fan is on and helping circulate air in a room, your AC won’t have to run as much to keep your room more comfortable and cool.
