Plan Smart

Energy Tip

Reducing air leaks in your home could save 10% or more on your utility bills.


What it Means

As much as half of your household energy use goes to heating and cooling.* With a few simple steps and smart choices, you can feel comfortable and save on utility bills at the same time. You can also feel better about the quality of the air you breathe.

One change you can make to put a good dent in your bills is to replace old equipment with ENERGY STAR® products. Other energy-efficient measures range from changing air filters to sealing ducts. Best of all, smart doesnít have to mean expensive. Thatís because many improvements can be made at little or no cost.
