Tip # 2! Air Sealing. There are different kinds on the market. Weatherstripping on a door or a window. This is a very easy project to do on your own and isn’t costly. Tip # 3! Water heating: limit the amount of hot water you use (i.e. reduce showers, use dishwashers only when it’s full, wash your clothes with cold water). Conventional storage tank and tankless hot water heater (heats the water as it’s needed, so it heats it on demand).
Tip # 4! Conserving water: you can mitigate water use by using a low-flow showerhead. A standard showerhead uses 50 gallons of water. A low-flow showerhead uses 15 gallons of water. See the difference? Tip # 5: LED lighting is worth the cost. LED light bulbs have a lifespan of 25,000 hours. Other tips: don’t do half loads of laundry, wash your clothes using cold water, put on a sweater when you feel cold instead of turning up the thermostat.
