Before you leave your office for the holidays, don’t forget to…
Unplug your appliances. Computers, stereos, printers, and microwaves draw electricity even when they aren’t turned on. An efficient way to do this is to unplug all of your surge protectors.
Turn down the heat. Thermostats come in all shapes and sizes, from boxes mounted on the wall to dials underneath your radiator. Make sure to find yours and set it appropriately.
Give yourself a day or two before you leave to defrost your refrigerator. Unplug it, empty it out and prop the door open. Make sure to put a towel underneath to absorb drainage.
Turn off the lights. It’s as easy as flicking a switch.
