New Year Energy Saving Tips

January 13, 2021 | Blog

With a new year comes new challenges, but some challenges have big rewards. Saving energy is a great challenge for the new year that can be easy, environmentally friendly and save you money. We have some great, energy-saving tips that you can use and help you have a more energy-efficient home.

As a disclaimer, we can’t say exactly how much you’ll save, since it depends on the household. However, all of the following tips should help you save money.

  • Replace your light bulbs – Switching to energy-efficient LED lightbulbs can greatly reduce your electrical bill each month, since they require far less energy to operate than traditional bulbs.
  • Install a smart thermostat – Smart thermostats adapt to your home to set the temperature to the optimal setting and can be programmed to focus on saving energy.
  • Reduce your hot water usage – Hot water heaters contribute to a large part of eclectic bills. By reducing your reliance on your hot water heater, you will bring down those big bills.
  • Use energy-efficient windows – Energy-efficient windows help prevent heat from entering or leaving your home, which can help you save in the summer or the winter.
  • Turn off electronics – Electronics that are left on or plugged in when not being used still use electricity. If you aren’t using them, turn them off and unplug them to save.
  • Clean or replace air filters – To save energy, your HVAC system has to be as efficient as possible. Replacing your air filters regularly means that your system doesn’t have to work harder to keep you comfortable.
  • Use natural light – If it is light enough outside to see well inside your home, leave your lights off to not waste energy.
  • Seal and insulate your home – Properly insulating and having an airtight seal will ensure that you are not being wasteful with your energy usage.

These tips are just a few of many you can use to help save energy and money. We challenge you to start saving – and when others ask you how to save electricity, share these tips with them!
