A low-flow shower head costs between $10 and $30 but can save nearly $200 in only one year for a family of three people who shower daily.
The average homeowner can receive a grant worth $400-$500 simply for replacing their furnace.
Ride sharing, car sharing, or taking transit to work reduces your vehicle use and can lower your insurance, maintenance and fuel costs.
Who doesn’t want to save money?
Being energy efficient pays off. Whether it’s buying low-flow shower heads, turning down your thermostat by 3°C or making sure your tires are properly inflated every month, the money you save by taking simple steps one day a week adds up.
Bigger steps, like changing your windows, getting a new furnace, or purchasing a fuel efficient car, may involve spending money up front, but the investment pays for itself and results in savings in the long run.
And start planning what you’re going to do with all that extra cash.
