Our energy saving tip is to minimize the use of indoor heat-producing kitchen appliances, such as the oven/stove, and take your cooking outdoors. By doing so, you will avoid a "sunburn" on your home cooling system. We cook Friday and Saturday's dinner at once on our outdoor grill! Our little chef Sarah is happy to help Daddy reduce energy usage and a cook a delicious meal.” – K Schooley [Jacksonville, FL] “Pay yourself first, your energy ‘tip:’ When you forget the lightswitch to flip. An energy tip jar shows that you care. A quarter reminds you to be self-aware. Every clink that you hear, as it drops in the slot. Is an energy nudge -- you can sure save a lot. Small things add up, and you’ll swear it’s a way. To bring about change, in a fun-loving way!” – R Rike [Charlottesville, VA] Furda’s tip garnered the most votes on the Lennox website during the designated voting period, topping Rike, Schooley and Rike to become the official Lennox “Energy Savings Superstar.”
