Did you know that the typical U.S. family spends more than $1,600 a year on home utility bills? Unfortunately, a large portion of that energy is wasted. And electricity generated by fossil fuels for a single home puts more carbon dioxide into the air than two average cars. The good news is, there is a lot you can do to save energy and money at home. Start making small changes today. You can cut your energy use up to 25%.
Energy-efficient improvements not only make your home more comfortable, they can yield long-term financial rewards. Reduced utility bills more than make up for the higher price of energy-efficient appliances and improvements over their lifetimes. In addition, your home could bring in a higher price when you sell. These great energy saving tips shows you how easy it is to reduce your energy use at home and on the road.
Keep in mind that insulation and sealing air leaks will help your energy performance in the summertime by keeping the cool air inside.
If your air conditioner is old, consider purchasing a new, energy-efficient model. You could save up to 50% on your utility bill for cooling. Look for the ENERGY STAR and EnergyGuide labels.
Consider installing a whole house fan or evaporative cooler if appropriate for your climate.
