  • Make sure your appliances and heating and cooling systems are properly maintained

  • Use sensors, dimmers, or timers to reduce lighting use

  • Set your programmable thermostat as low as is comfortable in the winter and as high as is comfortable in the summer

  • Clean or replace filters on furnaces and air conditioners once a month or as recommended

  • Clean warm-air registers, baseboard heaters, and radiators as needed; make sure they’re not blocked by furniture, carpeting, or drapes

  • Eliminate trapped air from Hot-Water radiators once or twice a season

  • Place heat-resistant radiator reflectors between exterior walls and the radiators

  • Check your ducts for air leaks. First, look for sections that should be joined but have separated and then look for obvious holes

  • Use mastic, butyl tape, foil tape, or other heat-approved tapes to seal your ducts

  • Use appropriate written operating procedure to start up or shut down equipment or installations

  • Do not carry out work if you do not have the right tools for the job and the environment

  • Do not access installations and perform work without wearing general or task-specific personal protective equipment

  • Do not walk under a load while lifting is taking place

  • Do not perform work without checking that the power and product source supply has been rendered inoperative.

  • Do not enter a confined space until isolation has been verified and the atmosphere checked.

  • Do not work at heights without a safety harness when there is no collective protective equipment

  • Keep a supportive eye on your co-workers, especially if they are new

  • Wear nonskid shoes when you work in kitchens, outdoors, or any other place where you will commonly be walking on slippery surfaces

  • Never climb on shelving units or storage units to get things. Use only approved ladders
