Homeowners across the country sacrifice comfort to save money on their energy bill each month. They set the temperature higher in the summer and lower in the winter because they think doing so will cut costs.
If you fall into that category, we have good news. Imagine saving money each month on utilities regardless of the season—no more bundling up indoors during cold months and enduring an uncomfortably warm house in the summer.
Plug your information into the energy-savings calculator below to learn how you’re doing on your energy spend and discover how you can save energy and money.
A few more things you can do to cut energy spend
- Go for the cold. Washing your clothes in cold water consumes less energy, which saves you money.
- Wait till the sun goes down. Run appliances like the dishwashers, washing machines and dryers at night when utility companies charge less.
- Invest in dryer balls. Using dryer balls decreases drying time, so you run the dryer less. Or try hanging clothes to dry.
- Pay your hot water heater a visit. If you’re heating water over 120 degrees, you’re using up too much energy.
- Pull the plug. Unplug appliances when you’re not using them. They’re still consuming electricity even if they’re turned off.
