The Least Expensive Ways To Save On Your Energy Bill

The Least Expensive Ways To Save On Your Energy Bill

When it comes to saving energy around the home it’s often the little things that add up to big savings. With the cost of electricity and natural gas increasing steadily over the years, its smart to invest a little time and money today to stay ahead of the curve.

Plumbing

According to energy.gov the average water heater in the U.S. consumes 18% of a home’s energy budget. In addition to adjusting the temperature to the lowest comfortable setting, insulating the water heater tank and pipes will allow your water heater to retain heat longer and consume less energy. Regular maintenance is also key to keeping the water heater working efficiently and reliably.

Low-flow shower heads are designed to create a comfortable stream of water while reducing water flow.

Heating & Cooling

Regular maintenance that includes monthly filter replacement and professional furnace and air conditioner check-ups will keep your homes HVAC system in good working condition and reduce energy use. One of the least expensive ways to reduce your heating and cooling bill is to ensure you have a good layer of attic insulation and that doors and windows are properly sealed.

Lighting and Electrical

Replace old incandescent light bulbs with energy efficient CFL or LED bulbs. You’ll not only save on electrical cost but you’ll reduce the amount of heat in your home, reducing your cooling bill.
