Jewcology: Just How Much Difference Do 2 Degrees Make?


Just How Much Difference Do 2 Degrees Make?
During the heat of summer, it can be tempting to set the thermostat to “arctic freeze.” But there is a cost to constantly running the energy-intensive air conditioner, and by keeping the temperature slightly higher, you can reduce your electricity consumption and lower your energy bill. Try raising the temperature setting on your AC by 2 degrees this summer. 
Need extra cooling? Instead of lowering the temperature setting, use a fan to circulate air, a more efficient choice.

Online tool: EPA’s “Reducing Energy Use” page is full of ways to cut energy expense, encompassing both heating and cooling. 

By taking this action you can save approximately 115 kWh in a year.  Learn more about our assumptions in the Year of Action.
