Top Tips for Saving Energy This Summer from Marshall Oil
Shower at Night
Showering at night can cool you down and allow your hair to dry naturally without the aid of a hairdryer or other electric appliance. Give it a shot!
Cook Outside or Not at All
Summertime is grilling time! Cook outside on a propane barbeque or a fire pit and save money on your energy costs. Not a grill fan? There are other options too, such as heating up food in the microwave or eating cold foods like salads, wraps, and subs. The more you adjust your cooking habits, the more you can save!
Sign Up for a Budget Plan
Marshall Oil proudly offers a 10-Month Budget Plan that will add predictability to your annual fuel costs and help you save money no matter the season. You’ll enjoy manageable, even monthly payments spaced out over 10 months of the year, from August to May. By signing up, you’ll take advantage of lower heating bills come winter, plus more convenient monthly budgeting.
Unplug Phantom Power
If you want to save on “phantom power,” unplug electronics that are on standby, or plug them into a power bar. Turn the power bar on when you need it and off when you don’t!
Wash Clothes in Cold Water
Experiment with the temperature in your washing machine. Unless you have a heavily stained item that you’re looking to disinfect, warm or cold water can do just as good a job as piping hot water. Plus, cold-washing clothes can prevent shrinking, fading, and color bleeding! Not convinced? Even setting the “Rinse” dial to cold will help cut your hot water costs.
Spend Time Outside
Not only is it enjoyable and healthy to be outdoors on beautiful, sunny days, but you’ll save money on things like television and computer energy costs. Just remember to bring along plenty of water and stay hydrated!
