10 Ways To Save Money

10 Ways To Save Money

undefined

1. Turn The Water Off When Brushing Your Teeth
This can save up to eight gallons a day!

2. Fix Leaky Faucets
A faucet with a slow drip can leak seven or more gallons of water per day. Stopping the leak will save 50 bathtubs full of water each year or more.

3. Take A Shower, Not A Bath.
A leisurely 10-minute shower under a low flow showerhead uses about one-third of the 60-70 gallons needed to fill the tub.

4. Don’t Rinse Dishes
Save up to 20 gallons per day by skipping a pre-rinse before you put your dirty dishes in the dishwasher.

5. Run Only Full Loads
Whether it’s a dishwasher, which typically uses about 10 gallons per cycle, or a washing machine, you can save money by only running full loads.

6. Choose Water-Conserving Appliances
Look for the Energy Star label: these dishwashers use about 1/3 less water and the washing machines use about 1/2 the water of less efficient models.

7. Install A Dual Flush Toilet
The dual flush toilet is a step up from the common low-flow toilets.

8. Buy A Programmable Thermostat
This automatically turns the heat down when you don’t need it up.

9. Change Your Light Bulbs
According to energy star, one of its qualified compact fluorescent lights bulbs (CFL) will save about $30 over its lifetime and pay for itself in about months. It uses 75% less energy and lasts about 10 times longer.

10. Find And Seal Air Leaks
Common routes for warm air to invade your house in the summer and escape in the winter include vents (such as those for dryers and fans), and the small holes for exterior pipes and wires. Use caulk, foam, or weather stripping to fill these in and save as much as 10 percent on your energy bill.
