    Thanks, This helped me a lot for a science poster I was supposed to make in Science class! I’m sure Mr Caluya (my science teacher) will love it! XD

  3. A very thorough list. I would also add additional insulation to water heaters, that typically helps a lot. Also, even if you are using gas, I would still turn down the heat, we are paying for energy one way or another.
