*Enforce the practice of shutting off lights, televisions, gaming systems and radios when not in use.
*If you are going to be gone for the day at work or school, unplug all of your small appliances, gadget chargers and computer equipment. This will reduce your use of phantom power.
*Have a Santa Monica electrical safety inspection to evaluate your home’s current wiring to determine whether you need upgrades to avoid costly damage to your appliances.
*Reduce the length of your current regular shower by a few minutes. When you add up 3 minutes 7 days a week, that is about 2 showers per week you can save and reduce the need for your water heater to heat water.
*Only wash full loads of clothes in the washer and use cold water whenever possible.
*Use the air dry cycle on the dishwasher.
*Consider using LED lights to reduce your lighting costs.
*Install a ceiling fan to cut down on the need for the air conditioner in the summer and the furnace in the winter.
*Line dry your clothing or invest in a drying rack to dry your clothes overnight or while you are at work.
