Energy Conservation Tips
When it comes to energy saving ideas, trailer home owners have some advantages in that their spaces are designed to be efficient in almost every regard. Energy is no different.
Energy conservation is mostly about thinking smart. For example, a stove uses a lot of electricity to get up to the set heat, but not as much to stay there; if possible, do your baking on one day a week so you only turn the oven on once.
Another oven-related idea: after baking in the winter, turn off the oven but crack the oven door open; the heat will help warm up the whole trailer home and will cost nothing.
Then there are the other classic forms of energy conservation in the home: compact fluorescent light bulbs, turning off lights and appliances when not in use, and even unplugging those un-used appliances, which drain power just by being plugged in.
If you think smart and keep your eyes and ears open for energy saving ideas, trailer home living can be rewarding, simple, and very energy-efficient.
