We’ve already provided conservation tips to help residents lower their electric bills and informed you about the water bill villain. This week, we’re focusing on how residents can conserve to lower gas bills.

Here are a few tips from our resident website mywaterwatchbill.com. To keep residents informed, share conservation tips on your property’s website, send out email reminders, or offer residents a conservation check list to keep in their apartment.

  • If you will be away from home for a week or more during the heating season, turn the thermostat down to 55 degrees before leaving.

  • Caulk where dryer vents and fan covers pass through the wall.
  • Close draperies at night to keep heat in and cold air out.
