Tips for saving energy and money

Lowering your utility bills starts with understanding your home's energy usage

Did you know your monthly Spire bill includes a chart with your average natural gas usage? You can view this information in two ways:

  1. Online by logging in to My Account 

  2. On your monthly bill (available on paper and electronically in My Account)

While the weather and the price of energy both play a role in all monthly energy bills, the purpose of this information is to help you understand how your own personal habits can lower your bills. 

Simple tips to help you save
When warming your home...
  • Stay cozy by insulating and sealing outer walls, ceilings, windows, doors and floors.
  • Let hot air flow freely by keeping clutter away from registers, heaters and radiators.
  • Avoid the fall rush by having your furnace inspected in late summer or early fall.  
  • Keep cold air out by closing your fireplace damper when it’s not in use.
  • Manage your home’s energy use even when you’re away with a programmable thermostat.
  • Bonus tip: Find rebates for this energy-saving device by visiting our rebates and offers section.
When heating your water...
  • Save on water-heating costs by taking showers instead of baths.
  • Conserve hot water by pre-rinsing dishes and clothes in cold water.
  • Boil water faster by covering your pot.
  • Heat water more efficiently with a water heater that’s the right size for your home.
  • Use less water by only doing full loads of dishes and laundry.
When preparing your meals...
  • Prevent energy waste by never cooking with a flame that exceeds a pans width.
  • Give your gas range a break and preheat the oven only when necessary.
  • Cook vegetables faster by cooking them in a small amount of water.
  • Maintain a consistent oven temperature by keeping the door closed. Each time it’s opened, it loses 20 percent of its heat.
