If every household in the United States replaces just 1 of light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulb; it would be equivalent to removing 7 million automobile off the road every year. Compact fluorescent bulbs replace just 1 frequently used light bulb with compact fluorescent bulb. Save 100 lbs. of carbon dioxide and $20 per year. Compact Fluorescent Bulbs have life expectancy of 5 to 7 years costs between 5 to 10 dollars each.
If every household in the United States replaces their hot water tank with tank-less water heater the United States would save every year:

Tank-less water heaters provide hot water at a rate of 2 to 5 gallons per minute and cost from $100 to $900 dollars per unit savings 19% to 34 % energy. Further you can attain even greater energy savings of 27% to 50% if you install tank-less water heater at all hot water outlets; kitchen sinks, dishwashers, bathrooms, washing machines etc.
