How To Make My Home More Energy Efficient
There are multiple reasons to make your home more energy-efficient. You reduce your carbon footprint and thereby reduce your negative impact on the environment. You can also see significant savings on your energy bills. Here are a few ways to increase your energy efficiency.
Insulate Your Attic
Most homes don’t have enough insulation in their attics. Increasing the amount of insulation will prevent warm air from escaping through your roof. During the summer, your home won’t get hot air entering your interior spaces from a sweltering attic. You save money in the summer and winter by insulating this space.
Replace Your Furnace
An old furnace is inefficient. If you have an old furnace, you should consider replacing it with a modern, energy-efficient model. While this costs money, you will also save money every month on your energy bills. Heating and cooling your home make up the largest part of your energy costs.
All Temp Co., Inc. replaces old furnaces for homeowners. We’re based in Harrisburg, NC, and provide residential and commercial services throughout the greater Charlotte area.
Use Cold Water to Wash Clothes
Using hot water in your clothes washer can usually be avoided. About 90% of the energy your washer consumes is used to heat the water. You’ll save significant money using cold water whenever you can.
Replace Incandescent Bulbs
Manufacturers stopped producing incandescent bulbs in 2014 because they’re so energy inefficient. They mostly create heat rather than light. LED bulbs have come down dramatically in price and consume far less energy. The average home has 40 bulbs, so you’ll save money replacing the ones that are incandescent.
Buy Energy Star Appliances
Modern Energy Star appliances are much more efficient than traditional ones. They use between 10% and 15% less energy than older models.
