We’ve really been working to reduce our energy use over the last several years. We’ve made the switch to energy efficient appliances. Our lightbulbs have been converted to LEDs. It’s been a profitable move for us because our utility bills just keep dropping.
One place I haven’t considered looking at yet was our water heater, but a recent infographic from The Home Depot has given me something to think about. Between washing cloth diapers and my family’s love of long baths, we could really stand to save some serious money by making sure we have the most energy efficient water heater that meets our needs.
Earth Day may be over but we’re always looking to become a bit greener by changing one thing at a time. We’re light years ahead of where we were a few years ago and I’m hopeful that by continuing to make slow progress we’ll be able to make some serious changes in the years to come.
