 It comes down to this: 

Would you change the way you do something IF
you knew how much money it would save you?


    • Save $203 per year in Heating costs:  Set the thermostat to 68% in the winter and 78% in the summer with an Energy Star programmable thermostat.  (This is based on a current annual heating and cooling expense of $615).  Note: For every degree you turn the heat down you’ll reduce your energy bill by 5%! 

 

    • Save another 20% on your Energy Bill:  Tankless water heaters heat water only when needed, unlike standard water heats that store gallons of water that needs to be constantly heated and reheated. 

 

    • Save $180 per year in Utility costs:  Replace your 10 year old refrigerator, dishwasher, room air conditioner and clothes washer with ENERGY STAR® labeled equipment.

 

    • Save $90 per Light Bulb over it’s lifetime:  Replace incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs).  CFLs consume up to 75% less energy and they last up to 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs. 

 

    • Save $580 per year in Cleaning Products:  Make your own non-toxic household cleaning products.  You can find recipes for making your own non-toxic cleaning products using everyday items like baking soda, vinegar, and soda water at www.greenpeace.org/usa.

 

    • Save $125 – $450 per year with Windows:  Replace single pane windows with Energy Star qualified windows.

 

    • Or Save $25 – $110 per year with Windows:  Replace double pane clear glass windows with Energy Star qualified windows.

 

    • Use 20% less water with Water Sense labeled products.

 

    • Save 5,000 gallons of water per year:  Replace your toilet with a low flow model and use less than 1.3 gallon of water per flush instead of up to 7 gallons.  

 

    • Save $500 per year in bottled water:  Save by eliminating 1 bottle of water per day, plus help reduce the amount of plastic that ends up in landfills and waterways.

 

    • Save thousands of dollars by Taking Your Lunch to Work!  Americans spend over $134 billion each year on fast food.  And takeout food packaging creates 1.8 million tons of trash in the U.S. each year!  If you spend $9 a day on a chicken sandwich and soda, that’s $45 a week, or $2,250 every year.
