Energy Tip of the Day:

Atlantis Business Consulting's Tip of the Day is:

"A gas meter is driven by the force of the moving gas in the pipe, and also turns faster as the flow increases. Each time the dial with the lower value makes one complete revolution, the pointer on the next higher value dial moves ahead one digit."

Energy Tip of the Day:

Atlantis Business Consulting's Tip of the Day is:

"The standard electric power meter is a clock-like device driven by the electricity moving through it. As the home draws current from the power lines, a set of small gears inside the meter move. The number of revolutions is recorded by the dials that you can see on the face of the meter. The speed of the revolutions depends on the amount of current drawn -- the more power consumed at any one instant, the faster the gears will rotate."

Energy Tip of the Day:

Atlantis Business Consulting's Tip of the Day is:

"The basic unit of measure of electric power is the watt. One thousand watts are called a kilowatt. If you use one thousand watts of power in one hour you have used a kilowatt-hour (kWh). Your electric utility bills you by the kWh."

Energy Tip of the Day:

Atlantis Business Consulting's Tip of the Day is:

"You may also wish to contact your local utility companies for more information about reading your meter. If monthly information is good enough, your utility bills could have all the information you need. Just be sure the bills are based on actual, not estimated, meter readings, and be aware of when the meter was read, because the time period between readings can vary. Contact your local utility if you are uncertain about this."

Tuesday's Energy Tip of the Day:

Atlantis Business Consulting's Tip of the Day is:

"Heating and cooling degree days are a simple measure of the effect of weather on your energy needs: using the average temperature for each day, each degree Fahrenheit below 65°F is counted as one heating degree day, and each degree Fahrenheit above 65°F is counted as one cooling degree day. Your heating and cooling use should be proportional to the number of heating and cooling degree days for the time period in question."

Energy Tip of the Day:

Atlantis Business Consulting's Tip of the Day is:

"You can read your own meters to help monitor your electric or gas energy use. During the heating season, your energy use should be compared to the number of heating degree days for the same time period; during the cooling season, compare your energy use to the number of cooling degree days."

Energy Tip of the Day:

Atlantis Business Consulting's Tip of the Day is:

"STEP-BY-STEP INSTALLING EXTERIOR STORM WINDOWS WITH LOW-E COATING:

1.) Position the storm window into the opening to check for proper fit. Determine the top of the storm window by noting which direction the movable panels (if applicable) operate. Center the storm window in the opening. Ensure that all screw holes land on solid wood.
2.) Remove the storm window.
3.) Caulk the top and sides of the existing window opening. Do not caulk the bottom sill.

Energy Tip of the Day:

Atlantis Business Consulting's Tip of the Day is:

"After deciding to install a storm window, your first step will be to choose which type is right for your home. All storm windows will make your home more energy-efficient, but the types vary widely—you can choose between different materials and coatings, and whether you want to install them on the exterior or interior of the home. We’ll focus on exterior storm windows, which fit on all standard double-hung windows and are the most common type installed by homeowners.

Energy Tip of the Day:

Atlantis Business Consulting's Tip of the Day is:

"Coated with an ultra-thin, virtually invisible layer of metal, low-e windows reflect infrared heat back into the home. This coating improves the window’s insulation ability, in turn lowering your heating and cooling costs. On average, low-e storm windows can save you 10%–35% in heating and cooling costs. This equates to $100–$350 in annual savings, assuming a $1,000 annual heating/cooling bill."
