Energy Saving Tips

Just a few tips for cutting your home energy costs:

  • Blow in extra insulation in your attic and walls to at least an R-30 rating.
  • Install new seals to the bottoms of your exterior doors.
  • Caulk around the outside of your windows if needed, make sure the temperature is above 45 degrees so the caulk will can set up.
  • Buy a new more energy efficient furnace or water heater and get a $500 tax credit at tax time.
  • Replace worn-out air-conditioning equipment.
  • Schedule a furnace or boiler tune-up every year to boost its efficiency.
  • Install foam gaskets under switch plates and outlet covers.
  • Get rid of your extra refrigerator.
  • Unplug anything that you aren’t using. Even though it isn’t turned on it will still draw electricity.
  • Insulate hot water lines.
  • Replace your central-air conditioning filters every month.
  • Turn down the thermostat on your water heater to 110 degrees.
  • Turn down your furnace thermostat in the winter, and up in the summer when the central air is on.  One degree can save you money.
  • Shorten your dryer-vent hose so it’s just long enough to pull the dryer out.  It will save you money.
  • Install dimmer switches and use energy-efficient halogen bulbs.
  • Close closet doors so you aren’t heating or cooling that space.
