Start the New Year right with our energy saving tips to save money and reduce your carbon footprint

January 05, 2024 Ashley Cissna, EWEB Communications

We know that saving money is important to our customers. Using energy and water wisely is a great way to reduce your monthly utility bill, even as the costs of electricity and water rise. EWEB has several steps you can taketo reduce your usage and even make your home feel more comfortable.  

With rising prices everywhere you look these days, you may be wondering what you can do to help save money on some of your bills. While EWEB is unable to help you save at the grocery store, there are things you can do to help reduce energy and water use at your home or business to save on your utility bill.   

The easiest way to save money on your utility bill is to reduce usage. Take a few minutes to consider improvements you can make around the home.  

  • Replace old lightbulbs with LEDs – take it a step further and get smart bulbs that can be programmed to a schedule 
  • Inspect your home/business for water leaks 
  • Find and seal drafts around doors and windows 
  • Clean your HVAC filter – simple maintenance can extend the life of your system and improve efficiency.  
  • Install a programable or smart thermostat – EWEB has a new rebate for Smart Thermostats! 

    Are there lifestyle changes you could make to save energy?  

    • Run your dishwasher and clothes washer only when they are full 
    • Use the dryer less – consolidate loads or try line drying 
    • Drive less – walking, biking and using public transportation can reduce your fuel expenses and help you meet any new year resolutions to be more active! 
    • Unplug your devices when not in use, invest in smart power strips to help 
    • Reduce the length of your showers – it takes a lot of energy to warm up water 

      Most of the above ideas are low to no cost to you, but can make a big impact on your bill. If you want to make some more significant improvements to reduce energy usage, EWEB offers several rebates and loans for commercial and residential customers.  

      • Heat pump water heaters  
      • Ducted and ductless heat pump heating and cooling systems
