Spending less at home

Save on heating and cooling

Tip: Install a programmable thermostat so you're not paying to heat or cool your house when you're out. Your utility may help you cover the cost. For example, they may offer you a rebate.

Saving on hydro

Tip: Many electronics use electricity even when they're turned off. Plug them into a power bar and shut off the power, not just the machine.
