How to Cut Your Energy Costs

We’re always looking for ways to save money at home. However, you don’t have to clip coupons to save. By making a few changes around the house, you can significantly cut back on home energy costs. Here are a few tips that will help you save.

Tips to Cut Energy Costs:

  • Schedule HVAC Service – Regular heating and cooling maintenance is necessary in order to keep your system operating smoothly. Maintenance helps detect problems, as well as improve overall efficiency.

  • Install a Programmable Thermostat – Programmable thermostats make it possible for you to keep your home a comfortable temperature when you’re there — and save money when you’re not. Adjust your thermostat before you leave for work or for a long vacation so that you don’t waste money when you’re not there.

  • Check Your Windows for Leaks – Check the seals around your windows. If you have a draft, you could be wasting a lot of money on your home heating and cooling costs.

  • Install a Tankless Water Heater – Tankless water heaters may have higher upfront costs, but they offer significant savings in the long run. Unlike traditional tank models, tankless water heaters do not store and heat water consistently. Instead, they heat water as it is needed, providing you with unlimited hot water — and a lower utility bill.

  • Lower Your Water Heater Thermostat – If you have a traditional water heater at home and you’re not ready to make the switch, check to make sure that your water heater thermostat is set to 120 degrees F. This will help you save energy and avoid scalding hands.
