On December 20, 2013 by Ayrshire Glen HOA
  • Showers can account for up to 2/3 of your water heating costs. Cut your shower time in half to reduce your water heating costs by 33%.
  • Washing clothes in cold water can save the average household up to $30 annually on hot water heating cost, if you have a gas water heater.
  • Dishwashers with booster heaters will let you lower the water temperature on your water heater, resulting in energy savings.
  • Don’t over-dry your clothes. Use your dryer’s energy-saving moisture sensor to automatically turn the machine off. A dryer operating an extra 15 minutes per load can cost you up to $34 annually.
