Upgrade your appliances.
If your appliances seem to be or are outdated, this is one of the best ways to increase your energy savings. If you’re model is older, they can be consuming up to 50% more energy than modern day units. Newer appliances tend to be an investment at first, but save time, money and the environment in the long run.
Use ceiling fans.
Ceiling fans tend to cool your home more efficient than not. When you pair your air conditioner with your ceiling fan, you can raise your thermostat a few degrees and keep a comfortable temperature.
Ventilate & circulate.
When you have your space properly ventilated it contributes to healthy and safe air. It provides quality to your home’s indoor air and will for sure save money on your energy bills. Make sure to also open your windows and recirculate the air in your home. This helps prevent mold and mildew growth and refreshes the oxygen inside. Plus, winter time is the best time to get that fresh air in since the humidity is typically lower during this time of year.
Readjust your thermostat.
As the weather starts to shift into cooler seasons and provides cooler weather, you can set your thermostat a few degrees higher and still be comfortable. The lower the temperature you set your thermostat to, the more you will pay in energy bills. Also, opting for upgrading your thermostat to a “Smart thermostat” allows you to adjust your home’s temperature anywhere from a smartphone; Invest upfront and save big later.
Adjust your water heater.
To get the most savings out of your water heater, you can set the temperature at about 120 degrees. This will decrease energy costs without having to take a cold shower! Also, consider opting for a tankless water heater when replacing your water heater.
