Instead of paying too much money for utility bills, look for small ways to improve the energy efficiency of your property. Here are a few energy-savings tips that you can use to save money each month:
Check Window and Door Seals
Are there small cracks and crevices where air escapes around the windows and doors of your home? Even if you have a great HVAC system inside, these drafty areas run up your utility bills. When the drafts are coming in from the weather outside, the HVAC system needs to kick on more frequently to manage the temperature in your home.
Seal the doors and windows to prevent the air from coming in and you will notice that you don’t spend as much on utilities. It doesn’t matter if it is hot or cold outside, a good seal is essential to help you manage the interior temperature without spending a lot of money.
Upgrade to High-Quality Windows
If you have old, thin windows in your San Diego home, you should consider the advantage of replacement windows. Old windows don’t help much with the insulation of your home. Reduce lost energy costs by choosing well-insulated windows that have been rated for energy efficiency.
Talking to a windows professional is the best way to identify the right types of windows for your home. These windows are a great investment, giving you long-lasting benefits you will enjoy.
Adjust the Thermostat
Even a small adjustment to the thermostat can add up over time. For example, if you are going to be gone at work during the day, set up a programmable thermostat to adjust the temperature by a few degrees during your work hours. The HVAC system can be scheduled to kick on again before you get home so you have a comfortable temperature to enjoy when you arrive.
Some people also like the idea of dressing in layers so the HVAC system doesn’t need to manage the temperature as much. If you are too hot, try changing into light weight clothing and get a cold glass of water instead of changing the temperature on the thermostat.
