We want to help you save money this year by giving you some tips on how you can cut costs in your home. By making a few changes, you can significantly cut back on energy costs. Here are five tips you can use:
Install a Low-Flow Showerhead
Traditional showerheads are designed to consume 2.5 gallons of water per minute. If you switch to a low-flow showerhead, you could save 2,900 gallons of water a year on average.
A programmable thermostat allows you to keep your home at a comfortable temperature and allows you to control the heat or AC when you are not home. This saves you money each month. If you can control it from your phone, that is even better.
Fix Window Leaks
Check the seals around your windows for possible leaks. A properly sealed window means your HVAC does not have to work as hard to keep your home at the ideal temperature, which adds to monthly utility costs.
Install a Tankless Water Heater
A tankless water heater offers significant savings over time. These tanks only heat water as needed, unlike a traditional unit. This provides you with unlimited hot water and a lower utility bill.
Lower Water Heater Thermostat
If you do not have or want to install a tankless water heater in your home, you can adjust the temperature on your water heater thermostat. Setting your thermostat to 120 degrees Fahrenheit will save on energy costs.
