Save water and save the energy required to pump, process, heat, transport, and treat it. Friday, January 10 is National Cut Your Energy Costs Day designed to help reduce the impact of energy expenditures, both financially and environmentally.
– Lower the temperature on your water heater to 120 degrees Fahrenheit to reduce the energy required to heat water.
– Turn the ice maker in your freezer off to reduce freezer energy usage by about 20%.
– Check and fix leaks in toilets, faucets, and other appliances that use water.
– Upgrade to Water Sense and Energy Star appliances that use water and energy more efficiently.
