Want more tips and ways to save money?

Reduce drafts

Keep the cold air out and warm air in. Use weather stripping to seal up gaps and cracks around all doors and windows in your home.

Estimated savings a year: $15

Unplug unused electronics

Standby power can account for 10% of an average household's annual electricity use.

Estimated savings a year: $50

Run full laundry loads

Cut one load of wash per week, even if you're already using cold water. This will cut down on power use.

Estimated savings a year: $30

Take shorter showers

Hot water is expensive. If two people in your home cut their shower time by a minute each, you can save money!
