There are many ways in which guests are encouraged to be environmentally friendly. Here is a partial list.
With the exception of the Outdoor lights, which are kept on for safety at night, the lights should be turned off when not in use.
Where practical LED or CFL light bulbs should be used to reduce energy consumption.
There are 2 heat pumps, one for the downstairs common area and one for the upstairs.
When you are home, please set the thermostat temperature to what is comfortable for you.
Before leaving the house, and when no one else is there, then set the thermostat temperature on both floors to the "default setting".
When no one is on a floor, for example at night when everyone is upstairs, then set the thermostat temperature on the vacant floor to the "default setting".
Please set the Fan setting to "Auto". Otherwise, if set to "On" the fan operates continuously.
During warm and hot days when air conditioning is appropriate, the thermostat may be set to "Cool" and the temperature set to 80 degrees. This keeps some air circulating on hot days.
On warm days, the ceiling fans may be used and/or the windows opened to let cooler outside air in.
During cool and cold days when heat is appropriate, the thermostat may be set to "Heat" and the temperature set to 50 degrees. This is so that plumbing pipes don't freeze.
Be sure to place recyclables in the recycling bin for weekly pick up.
Thanks for your cooperation and help.
