Everyone likes to save money.  There are many things that you can do around your house to save energy and money.  Some of the improvements can be costly such as replacing appliances with Energy Star appliances.  There are also many inexpensive things that can be done by you in your spare time.  With the improving technology there are some cool gadgets that can be installed to help.  For instance, installing a smart thermostat that learns your behavior and creates schedules for heating and cooling.  They also make devices that help reduce water consumption in your shower.  These devices work by decreasing the flow of water when the water reaches a certain temperature and when you are ready to shower, the flow of water will increase.  Some of these devices are also Wi-Fi enabled and record usage and water consumption.  This data can be viewed with an app that you install on your smart phone.

Below are some other things that can be done as well.

• Install compact fluorescent and LED light bulbs
• Caulk and Weather strip around doors and windows
• Install ceiling fans to help circulate the air and lower air conditioning use
• Install low-flow toilets
• Fix dripping faucets
• Replace furnace filters regularly
• Add additional attic insulation
