Energy-Saving Tips for Pet Owners

Energy Saving

Did you know your pet could be increasing your electricity bill? Pets contribute to the electricity bill, just like your family members do! Take a look at these energy-saving tips for pet owners.

1. Turn off fans when your pet is home

As long as the temperature of your home is set between 78 and 80 degrees, most pets will be comfortable and safe without a fan. If your pet is crated during the day, consider keeping the crate in the basement or other naturally cooler areas in your home. Closing blinds or drapes will help keep your home cool for your pet.

Turn off lights when your pet is at home

Dogs and cats have different vision than humans, and usually don’t need artificial light to be comfortable. Turning off the lights won’t upset your furry friend and it will help keep your energy bill under control.

Seal windows and doors for tropical pets

Tropical animals such as birds or lizards can’t thrive in a drafty house. Seal windows and doors around your pet’s main habitat to create the perfect climate for them without running up your power usage.

Make sure your fish tank is energy-efficient

Since a filtering fish tank is always running and using energy, make sure yours is as efficient as possible and use LED lights. Keeping your tank clean will also help it run more efficiently.

Wash pet bedding in cold water

This will save energy and still get your pet’s bedding and blankets as clean as possible. Pet laundry can also be hung out to dry instead of using the dryer. This will save even more energy and still keep your pets happy and clean!
