Let's Get Into Hot Water Now|
|1. Lower the water heater to 120°.
If your water heater thermostat is at 140°, lowering it to no
more than 120° could easily save this amount.|
|2. Wash clothes in cold water 1, 3 or 6 times per week.
||Save $50, $150 or $300.
Wash clothes in cold water instead of warm water (or use warm
water instead of hot). Hot water wears out clothes sooner
anyway, and you can use a pre-soak instead to get better
|3. Use your dishwasher's full cycle only once per week.
Use your dishwasher's full cycle once per week instead of daily
(use the rinse mode daily instead).|
|4. Use a low-flow showerhead for 1, 2 or 4 showers per day.
||Save $375, $750 or $1,500
Showers are a big part of both your energy bill and your water
bill. These savings assume eight minutes per shower.|
