Are you looking to save money (and energy) with electric consumption in your home?Here are some tips to consider:
Filters and Cracks
Be sure to clean out air filters to allow the filtration into your home to run smoothly and not overwork the air or heating systems. Check your home for window and doorway cracks or leaks.
Old appliances are energy hogs. Think about upgrading to new, more energy-efficient appliances that are Energy Star rated.
Ceiling fans help keep air circulating in your home which means less work on your heating and air systems.
Keep appliances unplugged while you are not at home including the coffee maker, toaster and stand mixer. Consider also unplugging the television, computer and printer. If this becomes a time-consuming task, think about using surge protectors that automatically cut power when not being used.
A well-insulated home allows you to preserve air filtration and prevents your home from leaking cool or warm air.
Have a professional audit conducted on your home to check out inefficiencies.
Freezer and Refrigerator
A full freezer and refrigerator acts as insulation and lessens the time this appliance has
to run to stay cool inside.
Curtains and Blinds
Close curtains and blinds when it is dark out (during cooler months) to keep heat in.
