There are a number of ways to save money on your gas bill. Below are a few suggestions to help you conserve gas.
- Gas savings can be increased by using less hot water, turning down the thermostat, and insulating the gas water heating unit.
- When cooking with gas put the cover over the pans and use only as much flame as necessary (Remember that slightly boiling water cooks foods at the same temperature as water that is rapidly boiling).
- When cooking with gas, preheat only when necessary. Don't preheat for meats and casseroles and use your exhaust fan sparingly.
- When you have a gas water heater, try taking a shower instead of a bath. A bath can use 15 – 25 gallons of hot water compared to the 10 gallons used for a 5 minute shower.
