Track Your Utility Bills
Sometimes we lose sight of how much money we spend on energy and water for our homes. Heating, cooling, electricity, gas, and other utilities all add up when we get our bills at the end of the month. Luckily, there are a lot of easy ways to save money on your utility bills. For example, installing a fan in your home can give your air conditioning a break or re-circulate warm air in the winter. Changing your light bulbs over to lower-wattage or energy-saving models can save you a bundle. Maintaining your faucets and shower heads so that they don’t drip can add up to significant savings on your water bills a slowly dripping faucet can leak up to 8L per hour! Properly insulating your windows and doors against drafts can keep heat from escaping and cold air from coming in. Of course, the occasional skyrocketing utility bill is unavoidable. If extreme weather or a malfunction lands you with a big utility bill.
