Hello Everyone,

Keeping your television, computer, stereo, blender,
microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and other non-
essential appliances plugged in at all times means that
they are drawing energy from the wall without using it.

Plug these items into a power strip and you can easily
turn everything off with a single button.

Hint 1: Install low-flow water faucets and save up to 60%
on your water bill.

Do you honestly need a faucet that has the strength of a
fire hydrant to wash your dishes?

I'll answer for you...NO, you don't

Simply replace your sink faucets with a low-flow model, this
will cut your water bill by 25% to 60%.

Want to save more? Install a low-flow shower head too!

Hint 2: Use curtains and blinds to cut cooling costs by 45%

The best times to use your curtains as a natural heating or
cooling system is in the summer and winter months.

Reflective blinds can reduce heat gain by about 45% during the
summer. In the winter the opposite applies, when you should use
your window treatments to trap heat and keep it inside.

Drapes can reduce heat loss as well!
