HOME OWNER TIPS
1) Water Heater burns cold hard cash.
Water heating is the second largest chunk of your home’s energy bills. Keep the temperature low and you can lower your bills: The thermostat can go as high as 140 degrees, but we recommend 120 degrees.
2) Give your AC a breath of fresh air.
The hotter the summer the longer and harder your AC unit has to work. A clean air filter can help your AC unit work more efficiently, which helps you save money. You change it out every month. If you have pets then do it more frequently.
3) Defunk the Disposal.
An easy way to clean your garbage disposal is to run cold water while sending ice cubes down the drain. If you make the ice cubes out of vinegar, it will also deodorize your disposal.
4) Flush it in a flash.
Flushing your water heater once a year can double its life. With the water and the power off, hook a hose to this drain valve and place the other end where it’s safe to purge hot water. With the pressure valve open, flip the drain valve and let the water flow. Reverse the steps and turn everything on again.
