THREE: Use LED bulbs. You can gradually change all the light bulbs in the house. Remember that they consume less energy. According to Energy Use Calculator, an LED bulb costs $1.83 a year and an incandescent bulb costs $10.95 a year. FOUR: Wash clothes in cold water. Check your washing machine and adjust the wash cycle, because cold water takes less energy.

FIVE: Air-dry your clothes in the sun. Of course, by doing this we take advantage of the weather to avoid using the dryer. SIX: Open the curtains in winter and close them in summer. According to Solomon, during the summer “40% of the heat enters through the windows.”
