  • Lowering the thermostat on your water heater by 10ºF can save you between 3%-5% in energy costs. Most households only require a water heater thermostat setting of 120ºF, or even 115ºF.
  • Appliances account for about 17% of your household’s energy consumption, with refrigerators, clothes washers, and clothes dryers at the top of the consumption list.
  • In cold climates, energy star windows can reduce your heating bills by 30%-40% compared to uncoated, single-pane windows according to the efficient windows collaborative.
  • Caulk small holes and cracks around plumbing pipes, exhaust fans, dryer vents, sink and bathtub drains, fireplaces and under countertops.
  • Install exterior or interior storm windows; storm windows can reduce heat loss through the windows by 25% to 50%. Storm windows should have weatherstripping at all movable joints; be made of strong, durable materials; and have interlocking or overlapping joints. Low-e storm windows save even more energy.
