If you are a new homeowner, or if you’ve owned a home for awhile and are looking for ways to conserve energy and money, here are some great tips to help you out-
Check the insulation around your home- Unfortunately, many older homes are designed with fiber glass insulation. For many reasons, spray foam insulation is the better option to help save energy and cut electricity costs. Having proper insulation in your home will help you save money and will heat and cool your home efficiently.
Lower the temperature of your hot water heater- It is unnecessary to have your heater above 120 degrees fahrenheit as anything above this temperature can be scalding hot. This will help cut costs on your electric bill.
Install LED light bulbs- LED light bulbs are the most ideal option as they last longer than any other bulb, and they help cut electricity bill costs.
Choose energy efficient appliances- Installing energy efficient appliances (such as stoves, refrigerators, or microwaves) will become a great investment in the long run, even if you pay a little more upfront. It’s better to buy a more expensive and energy efficient refrigerator that will last for 15 years as opposed to a cheap, energy sucking refrigerator that lasts only 7 years. You’ll be saving on your electricity bill as well!
Air seal your home- A great way to air seal or tighten your home is to use spray foam. Spray foam is capable of reaching small areas and sealing holes. You can also achieve an air tight home with caulking your windows and sealing cracks near doors and in walls.
