Heating and cooling costs account for roughly half of a home’s entire energy bill. Implementing energy efficient solutions can save money each month that would be better spent on other things!
To save energy,lower the temperature on the thermostat in the winter, and raise the temperature in the summer by a few degrees in the evening and when you are out of the home!
Open curtains during the day in the winter to allow the sun to help heat the home. Close the curtains in the evening to help retain warmth overnight.
Look for an Energy Star Rating when purchasing new heating or cooling solutions. Fact sheets are available for comparing and contrasting different models based on energy usage.
Turn off exhaust fans in kitchen and bathroom twenty minutes after cooking or showering. This will help with temperature regulation in the home and will save energy.
