3 Energy Efficiency Tips

Energy efficient Chances are, your utility bills are some of the highest monthly expenses you have. However, there are ways you can take control of these monthly expenses and cut down on what you’re required to pay every single month. By using these three energy efficiency tips you’ll save money every single month, cut down your energy consumption and improve your carbon footprint, all at the same time.

Smart Thermostat

With the help of a smart thermostat, you’ll cut down on your energy consumption every single month. This device gives you control of the thermostat anywhere in the world, as long as you’re connected to the Internet. It also can identify when you’re not home and your heating preferences. This way, your home will remain at a comfortable temperature while saving you money.

Annual HVAC Inspection

Over time a number of issues may plague your HVAC system and you might not even know there is a problem at all. Dust and other debris can collect in the vents, forcing the AC and furnace to work harder to treat the air in your home. Cracks in the vents lead to leaks, which cost you money as air escapes. Plus, if the HVAC equipment is not running as efficiently as possible this will end up costing you money in the long run. With the help of an annual HVAC inspection, you’ll take care of all these problems.

Unplug What You’re Not Using

Your laptop or cell phone charger doesn’t magically stop pulling electricity from the outlet when you disconnect the device. The cables still draw power. By disconnecting power plugs (such as your portable electronics and even your TV or gaming system) of devices you are not using you’ll reduce your energy consumption and save on utility bills every single month moving forward.
