Being more energy efficient at home is not only good for the environment, but it’s also great on your wallet.
If you are ready to upgrade or replace any of your appliances, look for the ENERGY STAR label. The label means it adheres to the U.S. Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency guidelines.
Turn off all TVs, computers, or anything else that you aren’t using before going to sleep at night. It will not only extend the life of your electronics, but it will also reduce the amount of your monthly energy bill.
Maintain and service your HVAC system regularly to prevent air leaks and to ensure you are breathing clean air inside of your home. Make sure the area in and around your residential a/c unit is free of debris. Anything that may clog the unit could hinder its ability to cool the air. To have your HVAC system professionally serviced, call a reliable company like Estes Heating & Air in Atlanta. Some routine maintenance and any air conditioner repair should be done by a professional to ensure safety and maximum efficiency.
Use energy-efficient lighting. Extend the lifetime of your bulbs and save money on your monthly energy bill by turning off lights when leaving a room. To reduce costs even more, use compact fluorescent light bulbs. During the day, use natural light in your home by letting light in through windows and skylights.
Use your thermostat and ceiling fans wisely. Some thermostats have the option to select when the air conditioner or heater turns on and off and at what temperature to keep the home. These are called programmable thermostats and they can greatly reduce energy consumption and expenses.
