According to Kristen Beaumont the average American households is steadily increasing its energy consumption. But you can help reverse this trend and reduced your utility bill by making your home more energy efficient and here’s how:

DO MULTIPLE LOADS OF LAUNDRY- One after another. The dryer stays warm, so you use less energy
TURN OFF LIGHTS AND APPLIANCES- When you leave a room. For instance, if your computer has a sleep function, use it. This saves 70percent more energy than a traditional screensaver.
