Money Saving Tips

These great tips are from my sister in law in China!

 

Shorten your dryer-vent hose. First, disconnect it and vacuum it out. Then trim the hose length so that it’s just long enough for you to pull the dryer a few feet out from the wall. A short and unobstructed line makes your dryer run more efficiently.

Cost: Free.

Savings: $25 a year on electric, gas, or propane.

Bonus: Your clothes will dry about 20 percent faster.

 


Turn down the thermostat on your water heater. It’s probably set at 140 degrees F to shorten the wait time for a steamy shower. But 120 or even 110 degrees is plenty hot.

Cost: A few minutes with a screwdriver in the utility room.

Savings: $30 or more per year on gas, oil, electricity, or propane.

Bonus: Your kids are less likely to scald themselves if the max water temperature is 120.
