Learn how to save money on your energy bills and stay healthy in a changing climate.
Replace all your light bulbs with LED bulbs. They last longer and use less energy, which saves you money!
Get a programmable thermostat and use it! Keep your thermostat a few degrees lower in winter and a few degrees higher in summer.
Buy ENERGY STAR® appliances and equipment.
Caulk and weather strip to make sure your home isn’t wasting energy.
Use a power strip for your electronics to make them easy to turn off all at once.
Wear a baseball cap or a sombrero and loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing.
Stop outdoor activity if you feel faint. Keep hydrated and seek cool places.
Schedule workouts and practices earlier or later in the day. Avoid midday heat whether you work or play outside.
Drink two to four cups of water – not juice, soda or anything else – every hour while exercising or working outside. Don’t wait until you’re thirsty!
Never leave children or pets in closed cars alone and check on the abuelos and sick friends.
