Summer is in full swing! This means two things: school is out and the hot weather is on. Now is the perfect time to teach your kids to be energy experts. Energy conservation is even more important during the hot summer months when your children are home during the day and are using electricity to power the television, video games, and the ever-expensive air conditioner. Here are some tips to help teach kids the value of conservation:
• Teach children to turn off the television, video games, lights, and ceiling fans when they are finished using them or leave the room.
• Ask kids to decide what they want to eat before opening the fridge. Having a snack in mind means the door will be opened and shut quickly, keeping the cool air where it should be…inside!
• Teach children to leave the thermostat on 78 degrees when home. Each degree below the recommended temperature of 78 adds eight percent to cooling costs. To be extra efficient, consider purchasing a programmable thermostat which you can program once and be done!
