How To Make Your Home More Energy Efficient

These days, homeowners are interested in making their homes more energy efficient. This is a good thing for homeowners and the environment. Below are some tips that will increase the energy efficiency of your home. 

  • Be sure to seal any air leaks in your home. To do this, caulk all windows and weather-strip all doors.

  • Make sure your home has adequate insulation. It is particularly important to add insulation to your attic.

  • If you are in the market for new appliances, opt for the most energy efficient option.

  • Ceiling fans can complement the efforts of your HVAC system. It is a good idea to have them installed throughout your home.

  • Do you have incandescent light bulbs in your home? If so, replace them with CFLs. 

  • Only do the laundry when you have a full load of clothing.

  • Use the air-dry cycle on your dishwasher instead of the heat-dry cycle for drying your dishes.

  • Have a programmable thermostat installed in your home.

  • Schedule annual tune-ups for your heating and cooling systems.
