Switch off lights you don’t need and turn on the lights you really need only.
In Winter decrease the heater temperature of 1 or 2 degrees; in Summer increase the air conditioning of 1 or 2 degrees.
Line dry the clothes instead of using the dryer when possible. It takes a little bit longer to hang them dry but it will preserve nature. Look for drying racks.
