More Great Energy Saving Ideas from IDT Energy

IDT Energy continues to help its customers and all consumers save energy and save money, too.

Here are a few new suggestions which can be done with a minimum effort to gain a big reward:

1.    For just $10 to $20 you can buy your water heater a jacket. Believe it or not, this small gesture of insulating the water heater can save about 1100 lbs. of CO2 each year for an electric heater, or 220 lbs. for a gas heater.

2.    Insulate windows and doors. Using caulking and weather stripping, for just a few dollars per door or window, you can plug the leaks that let out the expensive warm air and let in the freezing air in the winter, and the reverse in the summer.  Weatherizing plugs some of the leaks in your budget, too.

3.    How about trying low-flow shower heads? For only about $10-$20 you will not only get a wonderfully stimulating shower, but you will also save about 300 lbs. of CO2 annually for electric-heated water and 80 lbs. of CO2 for gas-heated water.

IDT Energy suggests that a small investment in savings now can pay off in a big way over time.
