  • Up Your Temperature: Set your thermostat to higher temperature while you are away. Your furniture feels great at any temperature!
  • Stop Phantom loads: Make sure any appliance with a remote or light is unplugged or the power strip turned off.
  • Use an Energy Saving Light: If you would like a light to be on for safety, use a CFL or LED and put it on a timer so it isn’t on 24/7.
  • Close the blinds: This will help to avoid unnecessary solar gain.
  • Have a great, worry free vacation!
