    Gas Conservation Tips

    • Set your thermostat a little lower. Every degree cuts your bill by about 5%.
    • Keep your showers as cold as possible to save on gas for hot water heating.
    • Open your curtains on sunny days to warm your home naturally.
    • Keep furniture from blocking radiators and vents to improve heating efficiency.

    Electric Conservation Tips

    • Set your thermostat a little higher. Every degree cuts your bill by about 3%.
    • Keep your AC coils dust-free and change the air filter several times per year.
    • Use a fan instead of AC whenever possible.
    • Close the doors and vents in rooms you aren’t using.
    • Unplug appliances like TVs, computers and DVDs when you will be gone for several days; they use electricity even when not turned on.
    • Switch to fluorescent light bulbs.

    Water Conservation Tips

    • Check for a running toilet by putting food coloring into your toilet tank and letting it sit for 15 minutes without flushing. If the color appears in the bowl, adjust or replace the flapper.
    • Keep your showers as short as possible.
    • Install aerators to reduce the flow of water.
    • Turn off the faucet while you brush your teeth or while you shave.
    • Keep a bottle of drinking water in the fridge rather than running the faucet until the water gets cold.
    • Select the appropriate water level for the size of the laundry load.
    • Soak pots and pans instead of letting the water run to rinse them clean.
