Reduce your home’s energy costs by installing a new ENERGY STAR® certified Smart thermostat. Programmable thermostats offer pre-programmed settings to deliver savings without sacrificing comfort.

5. Use energy-efficient power strips, and be sure to unplug electronic devices when they’re not in use. Items plugged into outlets use electricity even when they’re turned off.

We all do it … unplug our smartphones or tablets from the chargers, but leave the chargers plugged it. Change that habit today and start saving.

4. Take shorter showers.

Hold yourself accountable, set a timer on your phone so that you can stick to a shorter shower routine!

3. Fix water leaks as quickly as possible.

2. Install water efficient showerheads and faucet aerators.
