Celebrating National Cut Your Energy Costs Day with Little Tips for Big Savings

Did you know that January 10th is National Cut Your Energy Costs Day? While this may not seem like a major holiday to some, it can be one worth celebrating if you consider the amount of cash you can save by cutting your energy bills.

Most people know that reducing use is the best way to lower utility bills. Using less electricity, water, and other resources is a simple and straightforward approach to savings, but it isn’t always possible. For those who are looking for other ways to chip away at energy costs – and celebrate your new favorite holiday – consider these tricks:

Use an Aerator

Installing an aerator into your faucet will reduce the amount of water used by the fixture to obtain the same amount of water pressure. This will cut down on usage without feeling like you’re cutting corners to save costs.

Fill It Up

Only run your dishwasher when it’s completely full. While many people believe that it takes much more water to wash dishes this way than by hand, that’s actually not the case. The only problem with using a dishwasher is that it takes the same amount of water to wash a partial load as it does to wash a full load. Save the load until the racks are full, then switch it on for an easier, eco-friendlier wash.

Ditch Your Disposal

Fewer and fewer homes have garbage disposal systems these days, since these systems require water to work. This wastes resources. Choose a compost system instead and turn your waste into rich, garden-friendly soil.

Quicker Showers Over Long Baths

When possible, choose a quick shower over a long, deep bath. You’ll get cleaner quicker, and you’ll save over twenty gallons of water every time you wash up!
