As the new year approaches, are you looking for new ways to improve your home’s efficiency? Did you know that by developing a few simple habits, you can improve the efficiency of your home — and save money at the same time? Follow our guide of three ways to improve your home’s efficiency — and feel good about both your wallet and what you are doing for the environment. Here’s how:
Tip #1. Routine Maintenance On Appliances
At least once a year, take a survey of all your large appliances. Your HVAC system, kitchen appliances, and laundry appliances should all be serviced. This will help to maintain their longevity and efficiency throughout the year.
Tip #2. Clear Your Gutters
If you want water problems, you’ll get them when you don’t clear your gutters. At least once a year, you need to remove all leaves and debris from your gutters so that stormwater can drain properly.
Tip #3. Change Your Light Bulbsm
Want to go green inside your home and cut lighting costs? Replace all of your light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs. Your local energy company may even give you a box for free to encourage your green living. Contact your energy company to see if there are incentives for using CFLs.
