Here are four free energy saving tips you can use right now to gain heating and cooling savings in your Lakeville home:
1. Take a quick shower. It’s cheaper than a bath. A
five-minute shower with an efficient shower head
will use about 50% less hot water than one bath.
2. Wash laundry in cold water whenever possible.
Always use cold water to rinse clothes. You can
save up to 4% in hot water energy costs.
3. Turn your water heater off when you’re
away for an extended period.
4. Fix leaking hot water taps. Leaking taps cause the
hot water tank to continuously heat cold water
entering the tank.
