Replace your furnace filter at least once a month during the winter. It will help to reduce your heating costs and will extend the life of the furnace.

Lower your thermostat a couple of degrees when you leave the house or when you go to bed for the night.

Make sure that you read your water meter when the city mails you the meter reading card. You should avoid estimated water bills, you could have a leak that you are not aware of. Check your toilet from time to time by putting a small amount of food dye in the tank, if the water turns color without flushing it means that you have a leaking toilet and that it should be repaired as soon as possible.
