Molokai residents receive kits to help save energy at home

  • Stay cool. Open windows to let trade winds cool your home or use fans instead of air conditioning. If using AC, set thermostats to 78 degrees.
  • Check appliances. Make sure your refrigerator and freezer aren’t at their maximum settings. Dust off coils or filters and check rubber seals.
  • Fix leaks. A leaking hot water faucet wastes both water and energy.
  • Cold wash. Use a cold water wash and rinse for your clothes whenever possible. Water heating accounts for 90% of the energy used by your washing machine.
  • Dry wisely. Take advantage of fresh air and sunshine by hanging clothes outside instead of using a clothes dryer. If using a clothes dryer, clean the lint filter before each load to maintain the unit’s efficiency.
