Tips on how to live a greener lifestyle

Stay cool and reduce your utility bills this summer by trying a few of these energy-saving tips.

Turn Up Your Thermostat

Set your thermostat to 78 degrees when you’re home and 85 degrees when you’re away. You can save 1-3% of your energy cost for each degree the thermostat is set above 72.

Lower Your Water Heater

Water heating can account for 14-25% of your energy consumption. Turn down your water heater to the warm setting (120°F). You'll save energy and avoid scalding your hands.

Install a Pool Pump Timer

If you have a pool, slowly reduce the filtration time by 30 minute increments, as long as the water appears clean. You may only need to run the filter six hours a day. Install a timer to control when the pump cycles on.

Energy Saving Tip

By installing a high-performance showerhead, which uses a gallon of water less per minute, a family could save $135 a year on water and electricity.
