  1. Good infographic SavvyScot, but the sidebar cuts off some of it. I just figured I would let you know, so you can reduce the size.

    I have installed low flow fixtures, which can be a nightmare in our home because of our water pressure, along with CFL bulbs everywhere. We also have a programmable thermostat and our water heater is wrapped and down about 5 degrees.

    Good, informative infographic. I’ve done my best to do all of them, but I’m sure there are more ways I can save.

  3. We have most of these things, but they don’t save us any money as we live in a condo where all utilities are combined. All the showers were low flow to start with. Most of our lightbulbs are halogen, but for those that aren’t we use CFLs. We replaced our thermostat with a timed one for comfort reasons and to protect the environment. The hot water tank is centralized, which uses slightly more water as it takes longer to get hot water to far units, however it is much much more efficient to heat it all centrally (especially as many units in my building are vacation homes, so the water would be heated for no reason for a long time.) We also used a kit to retrofit our main toilet to a low-flow dual flush.

  5. This is a really powerful image mate. It is hard to believe that something as small as changing a light bulb could make such a huge difference.

  6. It’s like the butterfly effect. We don’t realize that small changes have big impact.

  7. Very powerful indeed. We bought a programmable thermostat but have been lazy about installing it. This makes me more motivated.

  11. Great graphic. We use LED lights and have a programmable thermostat. It works really well. We also try to keep the temperature lower in winter and just wear more clothes.
