New ENERGY STAR® tankless water heaters can reduce your annual water costs by up to 30 percent and last nearly 20 years, double the lifespan of an average, traditional hot water heater. Low flow toilets – An excellent way to save money and water is to install new toilets. Many of the toilets in NYC use up to 5 gallons of water per flush. A low flow toilet is required to flush at 1.28 gallons per flush. Smart thermostat – An easy and inexpensive way to instantly make your heating and cooling system more efficient is with a programmable thermostat. New programmable thermostats allow you to set your home at different temperatures for different times of day, so you aren't paying to heat or cool your home when no one is there. An added benefit of smart thermostats is you can control them remotely using a simple application on your smartphone. LED lights – Swap out your old incandescent lights for ENERGY STAR qualified LED lighting and you'll consume 75 percent less energy.
