5 Money Saving Tips to Boost Your Home's Energy Efficiency

 
 

With colder temperatures creeping in, energy efficiency becomes increasingly important. Discover how some simple changes can have a big impact.

1. Use Ceiling Fans

By running your ceiling fan in reverse, you can create an updraft that will push warm air down from the ceiling and circulate it throughout the room, making it feel warmer without having to turn up the thermostat.

2. Utilize Window Coverings

Keep the warmth in and save on energy bills with thermal curtains. These special curtains create a barrier between your window and the room, preventing cold air from leaking in and warm air from escaping out.

3. Install a Programmable Thermostat

A programmable thermostat allows you to set different temperatures for different times of day and night. This ensures that your HVAC system isn’t running unnecessarily when no one is at home or when everyone is asleep at night.

4. Invest in Energy Efficient Appliances

Energy efficient appliances such as refrigerators, washing machines and dishwashers use less electricity than regular models, which can have a big impact on your monthly bills.

5. Use Energy Efficient Light Bulbs

Energy efficient light bulbs use less electricity than traditional bulbs and last longer, so you won’t have to replace them as often. When shopping for light bulbs, look for LEB bulbs for maximum efficiency.
