Simply changing some of your habits can help you save energy and money. Here are some things to try:
- Don’t let the energy used to warm your oven go to waste. Once you’ve turned the oven off, crack open the door to let hot air escape and heat your kitchen.
- Take a cue from many hotels, and ask your family to reuse their bath towels. With fewer loads to wash, you’ll save water and energy on water heating.
- Lights aren’t the only things you should switch off before leaving a room. Don’t forget to shut down computers, televisions, radios, and other electronics that might be running.
- When shaving, fill your sink with a small amount of water for rinsing your razor. Not running the faucet helps you save water and energy on water heating.
