Tips to Increase Your Home’s Energy Efficiency

Do you want to save money and help the environment?  Try these tips to increase your home’s energy efficiency.

Low-flow

Installing low flow-faucets and showerheads can save gallons of water — and money.

Stop Leaks

Is your toilet running?  Then go catch it.  Just kidding…but seriously, fix it!  That wastes a lot of water and a lot of money.

The same is true for sinks.  Even a small drip can wastes gallons of water a day.

Insulation

Most homes do not have enough insulation.  Stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer with less energy (and less cost).

Seal it!

Windows and doorways can let in way too much.  Make sure you are sealing drafty windows and doorways.  This takes very little money and makes a huge difference.

Efficient ‘Stuff’

Make sure your ‘stuff’ or more specifically, your appliances, are energy efficient.  You may have to pay a little more up front, but it will pay for itself many times!

 

 

All of these tips will help you help the environment and help your wallet.  So go green and save the green! 🙂
