Replace your air filters. This task takes about 5 seconds and can save you money on air conditioning energy costs and provide cleaner air.

Check for leaks. Take a walk around the house and check under the sinks, toilet, and faucets for any leaks that could cost you money! In addition to the wasted water, a leak can cause mold and structural damage.

Install ceiling fans. Fans are a wonderful way to save on electricity and manage the temperature of your home any time of year.

Change the temperature of your water heater to 120* degrees Fahrenheit. This is a great tip for several reasons. First, water hotter than this can scold a person, so there is no need to have it coming out of the tap this hot. Second, it will save you money on electricity. It’s a win-win!
