Saving Money on Electricity
This week I thought I would share some ideas on how our family has saved money on our electric/gas bill. We have found that this particular bill has been one of our easiest to control. There are a several different things you can do to keep this bill under control.
Pull the Plug on Electrical Costs
One can never save enough electric. Yet, the growing concern over the cost of utilities coincides with the growing concern for the health of our planet. This enables a household to cut utility costs while "going green" in ways that are easier than ever before.
Water Conservation for Tough Economic Times
Everything seems to just keep going up, up, up these days! To say things are tight around our house is a major understatement! So, I have decided to do a few short articles on the things our little family does to try to save money/keep costs down.
Simple Ways to Manage Energy Costs
Educate yourself to understand your utility bills and each line item and charge included in your bill. Knowledge can save you money!
Looking At Everyday Household Energy Usage
I am such a creature of habit that I often do not think of the things I do that use expensive energy and climate changing fuels.
The Electric Bill Battle
Every month I open the electric bill and accept it with quiet discontent. However, this month the bill was too high to ignore. I stepped away from my desk and took a 360 degree look around my home. What did I see? A giant electric sucking vortex of wasted energy.
Ideas for Conserving Household Water
How are people finding new ways to conserve water in the home?
Energy Efficient Griddle Choice
Which would use less energy, a griddle on top of 220 volt stove or an electric griddle?
Energy Saving Tips for Renters
Most hints for energy savings are for home owners. Are there any for duplex dwellers? Are there web sites for this? I'm not allowed to even change the curtain rods, the curtains yes, but they must fit the rod that is installed.
Shutting Off the Water to Water Heater for Vacation
When leaving my home for months in Phoenix, Arizona should I turn the water lead to my hot water heater off? I can't turn the main off as I need it for automated sprinklers.
Reusing Water from the Washer
When I wash clothes, I use cold water and let the wash water drain into the washtub with the plug in. Then when doing another load, I bail the water back into the machine.
Door Draft Stopper
I want to make a door draft stopper. Any ideas? Thank you.
