    Air Conditioning
  • Sign up for peaksaver® (if available where you live) Allow your utility adjust your central air conditioner for short periods during hot summer weekdays when the demand for electricity is high.
  • In the summer, set your central air conditioner (CAC) for 25°C when you are home, and 28°C when away. Or if you can, turn it off.
  • Service your central air system annually.
  • Ceilings fans help keep rooms cool so you can turn the CAC down or off. They also use less electricity than your CAC
  • When shopping for a new central or window air conditioning, consider the newer ENERGY STAR qualified models, which are up to 70% more efficient than older models.
  • Clean or replace your window air conditioning filter monthly. Dirty filters may restrict air flow and reduce efficiency.

Attics
  • Install a minimum of 25cm (10”) insulation.
  • Seal areas around plumbing stacks, ceiling fans and light fixtures where they join the floor or ceiling.
Dehumidifiers
  • Consider switching to an ENERGY STAR qualified model.
  • Newer ENERGY STAR qualified dehumidifiers use 10% to 20% less energy than conventional models but offer the same features – effective moisture removal, quiet operation and durability.
  • Ensure you properly size your dehumidifier according to your space
  • The American Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers provides the attached table for determining how large a dehumidifier you need.
Fireplaces
  • When not in use, close the damper. Remember, even a closed damper leaks a large amount of heated air to the outdoors.
  • Seal fireplaces that are not used (a makeshift foam plug can be inserted and then removed if you decide to use it again). Hanging a flag from the plug will serve as a safety reminder.
  • Avoid havingyour furnace thermostat in a room with a fireplace.
Furnaces/Heating
  • Clean or replace the furnace filter once a month to keep it operating efficiently. A clogged filter impedes furnace performance.
  • Have a licensed HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) professional service your furnace yearly to ensure it is operating at maximum efficiency.
  • Insulate heating ducts that travel through unheated areas of your home to prevent heat loss.
  • When buying a new furnace, look for the most energy-efficient model you can find.
More
  • Set the furnace fan switch on “automatic” instead of “on” or “continuous”.
  • Use weatherstripping and door sweeps to seal doors and reduce drafts. Apply caulking and weather-stripping around drafty doors and windows to keep the cold out. No drafts mean a more comfortable home.
  • Close off air registers in any unused areas or rooms.
  • Keep warm-air registers, baseboard heaters and radiators clean unblocked.

Insulation
  • Add exterior and interior insulation to your basement.
  • Insulate your home thoroughly to keep it cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
  • Seal areas around plumbing stacks, ceiling fans and light fixtures where they join the floor or ceiling
Outlet & Light Switch Insulation
  • Foam gaskets will insulate electrical outlets and lights switches on your home’s exterior facing walls.
  • For standard electrical outlets choose anoutlet gasket.
  • For standard light switch faceplates choose a flip switch gasket.
Programmable Thermostats
  • A properly set programmable thermostat can reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 10%.
  • In the summer set the AC to 25°C when you are home, and 28°C when away.
  • In the winter set the thermostat to 20°C when you are home and 18°C overnight or when away.
  • Install the thermostat on an interior wall where there are no vents or drafts.
Vents
  • Open soffit, roof and gable vents to let in air and control moisture, thereby preventing damage to insulation and wood (daylight should be seen through vents).
  • Ensure attic insulation doesn’t block this air movement.
Weather-stripping/Caulking
  • Air leaks account for the largest amount of heat loss from your home.
  • Seal leaks around light fixtures, plumbing stacks, windows, exterior doors, attic hatches, pipe and wire entrances, wood-burning fireplaces, electrical outlets and ceiling fans.
