Tips for Being More Efficient in 2019

By December 31, 2018 No Comments

The start of the new year is the perfect time to make changes
that will last all year long. With rising energy costs and our
ever-changing climate, becoming a more efficient homeowner is extremely
important.

Are you interested in becoming a more efficient homeowner? Here are a few helpful tips that can help you conserve energy and save money:

1) Make the Switch to Energy Efficient Light Bulbs

Say goodbye to cheap iridescent bulbs and hello to LED and CFL
bulbs! These bulbs might be a tad more expensive compared to what you’re
currently paying, but they actually last much longer than iridescent bulbs and
use 75-80% less energy.

2) Get a Smart Thermostat

Smart thermostats like the Nest Smart
Thermostat
 or the Emerson Sensi
Thermostat
 are essential to helping you become a more efficient
homeowner. Not only do they learn your patterns and what temperature you like,
they also will show you when you are using the most energy during the day and
how you can change that.

According to nest.com, a recent study found that a Nest Smart
Thermostat
 can save homeowners 10 to 12% on heating bills and
up to 15% on cooling bills. Not only will a smart thermostat save your home
energy, it will also save you money.

3) Look for air leaks

Inspect places in your home where air could be escaping, in most
cases, these can be found around windows and doors. Take care of gaps or cracks
around these areas by caulking, sealing or using weather stripping. If these gaps
and cracks go unnoticed long enough, they can drive up your energy bill. They
can also grow and become very expensive to fix. This small and easy task can
save you a lot of money in the long run and is especially important during the
winter.

4) Change Your Air Filters

This simple and inexpensive task can save you lots of money over
time. Not only can replacing your filters regularly (it’s recommended that you
change them every 3 months) keep your family happy and healthy, it can also
help your HVAC system last longer. Depending on what MERV rating you select,
your air filters can help keep particles like bacteria, dust, pollen and even
mold from being pumped into your air. They also protect your equipment from
dust.

when to change them and what store you can get them give you a headache? What
