This can save a lot of energy and contrary to common belief, frequently turning your computer and monitor off to save energy will not shorten the life of the computer/monitor due to advances in technology.

USE FANS AND VENTILATION STRATEGIES TO COOL YOUR HOME
If you use air conditioning, a ceiling fan will allow you to raise the thermostat setting about 4°F with no reduction in comfort. Turn off ceiling fans when you leave the room. Remember that fans cool people, not rooms, by creating a wind chill effect.

With summer around the corner, lawn watering season begins. Here are some tips to water your lawn efficiently.
You should water your lawn before 10 AM or after 6 PM to prevent rapid evaporation of water. This will ensure your lawn gets the most water most efficiently.
It is recommended that you water your lawn no more than twice per week. This will help your lawn grow deeper roots that are more water efficient and drought resistant. This is for more well-established lawns. Newer lawns and potted plants may require more frequent watering.
This depends on your soil make-up. It is generally recommended that you do not water more than one inch per week. A bit more during dryer, hot spells. A little less during cooler times.
