Water Heater

Behind the furnace, the water heater is typically the second largest user of energy in the home. Set your water heater thermostat to no more than 120 degrees.

Sooner than later, the new norm in home water heating will be the heat pump water heater. They take the heat from the surrounding area and use it to heat the water. They are MUCH more efficient than standard water heaters, since they are up to 2.5 times more efficient, and they can be integrated with existing water heaters. Get more information about heat pumps.

Bike

It’s pretty obvious: we drive way too much. Do you live close enough to bike to work, to a friend’s or family member’s house, or even around town? Granted, it takes a little more physical strain than driving, but biking will provide exercise, ease your budget, and allow you some outdoor time (which never hurt anyone, except in the case of Grizzly Man). Even carpooling or bussing is preferable to the lonely car trip.
