Making Your Home More Energy Efficient
Saving money by keeping your utility bills down doesn’t have to be difficult. There are simple ways you can keep your home tightened up. You can start by plugging holes, patching roofing or siding and adding weather-stripping around doors and windows.
If you have a little money to invest, switch out any single pane windows for double pane windows or even triple pane styles. You can also replace insulation in the walls, attics and other spaces around the house.
Have old appliances? There are newer Energy Efficient appliances being made today that qualify for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s EnergyStar label. According to the website, these appliances can be twenty to thirty percent more efficient than your standard model.
