Now that winter is here, the energy costs are likely climbing due to use of heat, hot water, and more. Companies like IDT Energy would agree that not all of the costs are necessary; you can cut back slightly on your bills if you follow these few tips:

1.       Although you want nothing more than to relax in a hot, steaming bath after a cold winter day, doing so will cost you more for both the heating of the water, and the water itself. Showers use up less hot water than do baths.

2.       Install an aerator to the end of your shower head to reduce water flow by up to half. Also, make sure to turn the faucet all the way off when you are done using them.

3.       Don’t bother mopping and cleaning the house with hot water. Save the hot water for your showers, and lower your heating bill. Your house will look and feel clean even if you use soap with cold water.
