It’s no secret that sports looked a little different this year. Most of us experienced the coldest championship in history, from our living rooms. While there are many benefits in staying home, an increase in your energy bill is also more likely. Here are some tips for watching ALL your favorite teams and enjoying some savings on your energy bill!


  1. Adjust the Thermostat

While you’re home, try setting your thermostat as low as is comfortable. You can always layer your clothes and make use of any extra blankets. When you’re asleep or out of the house, turn your thermostat back 7° to 10° for eight hours and you can save around 10% a year on your heating and cooling bills.

Using a smart or programmable thermostat can make it easy to set back your temperature. Just set it and forget it. Let the technology do the work for you!


  1. Use an Energy Efficient TV

The average American watches more than 5 hours of TV a day, accounting for 40% of their free time. Did you know your TV could create a drain on your electricity bill? Consider treating yourself to a new one! Finding the right energy efficient TV allows you to relax and indulge in the spectator sports knowing that you aren’t racking up your electricity bill.


  1. Recycle as Much as Possible

Finally, when the game is over and it’s time to clean up, don’t throw everything into one trash bag. Separate out your cans and plastics from the garbage and place them in the appropriate bins or containers for recycling. Recycling saves energy that can be invested in creating new resources.
