Energy efficiency is important to both our environment and to your budget. One of many energy saving perks is cutting down on electricity usage throughout your home. Home energy efficiency is a great way to be environmentally conscious, while saving money. While it may seem tricky to uncover new ways to save on energy, we can assure you that home energy efficiency is easy! For many of us, it can be hard to know where to begin when it comes to energy efficiency, so we have outlined some energy saving tips below.
Cooling & Heating Your Home: Installing a ceiling fan in every room will help you regulate room temperatures, and help circulate the air. Changing your cooling and heating system’s filter every month is another helpful way to make your home more energy efficient. Upgrading your heating and air conditioning system may seem like an expensive project, however an energy efficient heating and cooling system will lower your electricity cost in the long term.
Installing Efficient Showerheads & Toilets: This bathroom upgrade is an easy fix to a big efficiency problem. Upgrading your showerheads and toilets to energy efficiency models will help decrease your water usage from the moment you install it. This easy, do-it-yourself project will help you conserve water as well as energy from your hot water heater.
Tankless Water Heater: A tankless water heater is often recommended by general contractors to most effectively cut home energy and heating costs. Replacing your traditional water heater with a tankless water heater will save on energy resources, as it only heats the water used throughout your home. Install a tankless water heater to drastically reduce your carbon footprint, and cut energy costs.
