Top Five Easiest Things to Do to Conserve Energy

  1. Change the filter in your furnace: Keep heating and cooling systems running efficiently.
  2. Change to fluorescent light bulbs: They use far less energy than incandescent bulbs.
  3. Combine trips: Plan your errands to reduce transportation time.
  4. Lower the temperature on your water heater: You'll still have hot water, but it means the heater uses less energy when you are not using hot water.
  5. Check your car's tire pressure: Poorly inflated tires waste gas and cause more pollution.

Top Five Decisions That Will Make the Biggest Difference

  1. Buy a fuel efficient vehicle: Include the fuel economy rating as part of the decision making process.
  2. Buy green power: Go solar with NWF and get credits for your house or your organization, while learning about your impact. 
  3. Install a programmable thermostat and weather-proof your home: It takes about 10 minutes to install and allows you to save lots of energy costs when you are not home.
  4. Buy less stuff: Everything we buy creates waste and uses energy both in the manufacturing process and after we use it.
  5. Stand up for what's right: Advocate for clean energy and the protection of wildlife from global warming.
