Using hot water to wash your clothes means your hot water heater is working overtime. Simply switching to cold water will conserve electricity.
Adjust The Thermostat
Adjusting the thermostat a few degrees towards outside air temperature means your A/C or Heat has to work less. Install a smart thermostat that can be adjusted remotely and can also detect motion and automatically increase/decrease the temperature to lower your bills.
Taking 2 minutes off your shower can save 10 gallons of water per shower. Also, consider replacing your showerhead with a water saver showerhead.
