It’s that time of year again, time to set your clocks forward 1 hour on Sunday, March 11th, 2018. The clocks in your car, watch, and microwave are not all that need updating. Your building may also need a time adjustment. Make sure you are not wasting energy by following the tips below:
• Adjust your timer controls and programmable thermostats.
• Check all lighting timers to be sure they are turning interior and exterior lights on and off at appropriate times. Make sure lighting schedules reflect reality, especially in northern climates as sunrise and sunset begin to be farther apart. No need for lights to be on after the sun is up unless it is very dark outside due to inclement weather.
• Clean all lamps, reflectors and lenses.
