Green tips for summer heat

Green TipOSU energy managers encourage the following tips to beat the heat and cut energy costs this summer.

  • When leaving your office or home for summer vacation, remember to turn off all computers, monitors, speakers, non-networked printers, lights and other electronic equipment. Also, close all window blinds and tilt the slats upward to keep unoccupied spaces from heating up. If needed, remove plants from window sills, empty refrigerators and prop doors open.
  • Maintain temperatures of 74-78 degrees when using air conditioning at home. Raise the temperature to 85 while you’re away.
  • Clean and/or replace filters regularly. Spray the new ones with a light coating of lemon furniture polish or vegetable oil cooking spray to trap more dirt.
  • Close blinds and drapes during the day to keep heat out.
  • Use caulk and weather stripping to keep cool air in your home.
