Utility bills can and often do fluctuate throughout the year. For many homeowners, it can be difficult to plan for high bills that arrive. If you want to save more money on your utility bills and reduce your carbon footprint, there are a few tips to follow that will quickly pay off.
One of the most common ways that most households use excess energy is due to drafts and air leaks. Make it a point to keep your home sealed by covering drafty windows with plastic material during the winter months. Insulation pads can also be added inside electrical outlets with spray foam installed around the windows to decrease the amount of energy the HVAC system uses.
Consider scheduling an HVAC system inspection with a qualified technician to find any issues that may be present. Even small issues with your HVAC system can cause the appliance to work harder than necessary. The technician can also clean the parts and replace the air filter to improve the energy efficiency of the product to help you save more money each month.
Many people keep their old appliances because they still work well, but they can end up spending more money due to the amount of energy the products consume. When you upgrade your alliances, you could also be eligible for tax exemptions if you purchase certain EnergyStar products. You’ll not only conserve more energy in the home, but you can also avoid costly repairs that your older models may have needed. Although new appliances can be an investment, that investment can pay off over time by way of the energy savings that you obtain.
