      Smart Woman: Saving Energy

      Lynchburg, VA - Your home has a gluttonous hunger for energy and we could all learn a thing or two when it comes to saving energy and money.

      First off, try replacing your TV with the LED backlit LCD televisions. They are the most energy-friendly TVs on the market, saving your 50% more energy.

      Also, turn off your computer. Leaving the screen saver on can use more energy than when you are using the computer yourself. You can save $50-$100 a year by enabling your computer to sleep.

      Finally, change how you do your laundry by turning down the temperature setting on your washer to 103 degrees Fahrenheit instead of the standard 140 degrees Fahrenheit.

      You save way more energy and 103 degrees is just as effective for getting clothes clean.
