Turn the Temp Down on Your Hot Water Heater

To help keep gas and electricity bills down, slow down your water when you take a shower. For some reason we think we need it on all the way. You can also turn your hot water tank down some till winter is over.

One of the ways I try to cut down on hot water consumption is by washing our clothes in cold water. I've been doing it for probably over 6 months now, and it seems to work just as well as washing them in warm water.
