Look at your laundry habits to save energy

There are two ways to reduce the amount of energy used for washing clothes—use less water and use cooler water. Unless you're dealing with oily stains, the warm or cold water setting on your machine will generally do a good job of cleaning your clothes. Switching your temperature setting from hot to warm can cut a load's energy use in half.

The U.S. Department of Energy offers these tips to help you save even more:

Beware of Scammers

Dust dollars off your energy bill by regularly changing air filters

The most expensive dirt in the world may lurk in your home’s heating and cooling system. If neglected, dust collecting the equipment’s air filter could increase your energy bills hundreds of dollars every year and result in costly repair or replacement costs.

Dirty filters cause a system to work harder and break down faster. That’s because unfiltered dust and grime work into critical parts, creating friction that causes unnecessary wear and, eventually, failure.
