The purpose of the ConserveIQ Quiz is to:

  • Review your normal activities and consider things you may not normally think of
  • Improve your indoor air quality
  • Evaluate ways to save you money on water and energy bills

If you score a high CIQ, you may already be saving money and conserving resources. If you score a low CIQ, there may be some opportunities for you to save money and resources. Have each member of your family or your friends take the test separately and discuss your scores. It’s always a good idea to take the CIQ Quiz again as you make changes to your activities. Watch your ConserveIQ increase and your utility bills decrease!
