How to Save Energy
We are a family of five which means if we all took the 15 minute hot showers we’d like we would not be as efficient as possible and have an energy bill that our pocket books would NOT like. This is one area we have cut down on, but there are other ways to conserve energy that you may not have thought about.
5 Ways to conserve energy
Lowering the temperature on your water heater can mean big savings! Better yet rebates have more than doubled this year. for homeowners to receive up to $10,238 in rebates for installing a solar water heating system!!
That is BIG! You can even have a solar water heated system professionally installed by a certified contractor who will work with you to determine the best system for you and handle your rebate application too. Now that is helpful.
- Here are added tips on ways to keep your house cool this summer.
Washing larger loads of laundry helps to conserve energy as well as using cold or cooler water for your loads when possible.
- Especially if you are minimizing pet dander you may need to do more loads.
Think about drying your towels outside on a line instead of in the dryer from time to time. They actually have a great smell when they’re dried that way.
Taking shorter showers and filling the bath tub only partially full helps when you’re looking for ways to conserve water as well. Combine this with a solar water heating system and you can see substantial savings!
A solar water heater works with your existing unit so you can have hot water no matter the weather. Huge rebates are offered even if you choose to do the installation yourself.
Another way to conserve energy in your home during the winter is to use space heaters in bedrooms. They work quite well. Each person can adjust the heat to their liking, and have safety functions so if they knock over.
- We have used these the last few years and cut down our energy costs quite a bit.

Those are all great tips, thanks for sharing. We do try to take shorter showers, and my kids even turn the water off in between soaping up and rinsing off.
