KW Saves kWhs: Fans & Filters

Here are a couple easy ways to help you lower your heating costs. Check back each month for additional ideas.

Ventilation Fans and Air Filters

Don’t leave bathroom or kitchen ventilation fans running longer than necessary. They replace inside air with outside air.

Clean or replace all filters in your home regularly. Dirty filters make your system work harder and run longer than necessary–this is a good thing to do for both winter and summer.

Turn off ‘heated dry’ on your dishwasher and ‘air dry’ instead.

Even though each of these seem like small things to do, added together they can save kWh’s over time and help reduce electric bills.
