When it comes to your natural gas, the key to conservation lies in evaluating your home’s unique heating and cooling systems. Check out these four tips to find out where you could be saving gas and money.

How Hot Is Your Water Heater? – Your water heater can account for 14-25% of the energy consumed in your home. Turn it down to 120 degrees to save even more, and make sure you have an energy-efficient model.

Could Your Showers Be Colder? – Cold showers have several benefits, including improving your body’s natural immunity, promoting better circulation and lowers stress. You can also install low flow shower heads to help save water.

What’s Your Dishwasher Setting? – Does your dishwasher have an energy-saving drying option or water-saving setting? It’s a great way to conserve and use your appliance to its full potential.

Do You Need a Professional? – Replace old water heaters and furnaces if they are older than 15 years with more energy efficient models, and have a contractor assess your heating and cooling systems. You could be losing valuable heat in your home because of outdated systems.
