By making some simple behavior changes and opting for energy-efficient products, you and your family can reduce your annual energy bill (and subsequently your greenhouse gas emissions).

Keep the Warm Air Out

Important to keeping your home cool is keeping the warm air out. Caulking and weather stripping to reduce air leaks, as well as sealing cracks, helps your home cool more efficiently.

Put the Clothes on the Line to Dry

ENERGY-STAR®-qualified appliances are a win-win-win. They save energy, money and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. That being said, they can also add heat to your home. On hot days avoid using the oven—opt for the grill instead. Hang dry your clothes or hand dry your dishes.

Evaluate Your Hot Water Options

Water heating is the second largest energy expenditure after heating and cooling. In fact, the average household spends between $400-$600 each year on water heating. One way to cut down on your water-heating bill is to turn down the temperature of your water heater.

A tank-less water heater is an ideal solution for homeowners looking to increase their hot-water supply and tap into the benefits of tankless technology without reconfiguring their current set up.

In Addition:

  • Schedule regular maintenance for your cooling system. And, if it’s time to replace your air conditioner, whether a whole-home or single-room cooling solution, Call Us!
  • Clean registers and remove any lint build up.
  • Install a programmable thermostat that allows you to “set it and forget it” based on your family’s activity pattern.
  • Keep window coverings closed during the day to block the sun’s heat.

Making small adjustments and shifting a few behaviors can have a significant impact on your family’s comfort and your home’s utility bills.
