Energy Conservation

Energy Conservation Tips

Want to save energy? If you live in an area with abundant sunlight year-round, installing solar panels on your roof can save you tens of thousands of dollars on electricity costs over the lifetime of your system. You can also store surplus electricity for future use. Regardless of whether you have solar panels or use traditional electricity from a utility company, there are many steps you can take to save energy. Here are some energy conservation tips:

 

  • Switch to LED light bulbs. These bulbs are more efficient and last significantly longer than traditional CFL bulbs.

  • Install a smart thermostat. You can program a smart thermostat to automatically shut off or modify your home's heating or cooling depending on the time of day.

  • Install energy-efficient appliances. Old appliances generally use more energy and perform worse than modern ones. Consider upgrading your refrigerator, water heater, HVAC system, and other key components of your home. Look for the ENERGY STAR symbol on new appliances.

  • Patch air leaks. Drafty windows and doors contribute to higher electricity bills. You can weatherize your home by sealing cracks and gaps. Apply caulk and install weather stripping at the appropriate points to optimize your home's heating and cooling.

  • Insulate your home. Every home needs proper insulation. Inspect your walls, floors, attic, basement, and crawlspaces. Replace worn out insulation and get personalized recommendations for your home.

  • Adjust your daily habits. Your HVAC system is the biggest contributor to your electricity bill. Set the temperature a few degrees higher in the summer and lower in the winter, using fans and wearing more clothes as needed. Replace your air filter at the recommended intervals. Turn off electronics and lights when not in use, and pay attention to your hot water usage.
