Quick Home Energy Conservation Tips
Clichés have an annoying habit of often being as true as they are unoriginal. It’s no truer than with the saying “leave each place a little better than when you found it.”
We teach it to our kids, but how can we practice it ourselves? When it comes to the environment, there are simple ways each and every person can make a difference beyond recycling. But to truly abide by the mantra, we need to start with the basics: our homes.
The rule is simple — stick to the basics. Take stock of all the systems, devices, and areas in your home and ask yourself: is this energy efficient? If you can’t answer or don’t know, there’s a good chance an alternative is out there, waiting to save your budget and the Earth along the way.
Here are a few quick home energy conservation tips:
Switch to LED Lights
Making the switch from incandescent light bulbs to LED or indoor solar lights is one of the fastest and cheapest methods to save energy.
Make Your Home Airtight
Keep the heat you want inside and the airborne illnesses out with proper sealing of your home’s cracks and junctures.
Upgrade Your Insulation
Multi-layer reflective insulation can reduce the heating and cooling costs for your home by stopping up to 97% of radiant heat transfer.
Install Solar Attic Fans
Solar powered attic fans remove stale warm in exchange for cool fresh air to help protect your roof and reduce your energy costs.
