Install the LEDs in your kit to help ensure your home is on its way to becoming more energy efficient! Each incandescent bulb you replace with a LED can save your family $40 or more in energy costs per year.
By reducing the thermostat setting on your water heater to 120° you can save up to 5% yearly in energy costs.
Not Sure? Use this simple procedure to determine if you currently have energy-efficient, high-efficiency shower heads. You will need a bucket, a watch with a second hand or other timer, a calculator, and a measuring cup.
Install the high-efficiency shower head to ensure that your shower is as energy efficient as possible.
Kitchen faucets usually demand a higher flow rate than bathroom faucets, so using a water-saving aerator with a flow rate of 1.5 gpm will conserve water and reduce water-heating energy use.
Using the swivel kitchen faucet aerator contained in your Student Energy Education Kit, unscrew the existing aerator screen and replace with the new one!
