Year-Round Energy-Saving Ideas

Reducing energy usage is always a money-saving proposition that any Chamblee, GA, resident can appreciate. You can make simple changes around your home that don’t cost a lot of money. The following are some energy-saving ideas to reduce home ownership costs and free up extra cash:

Add Insulation To Seal Leaks for Energy-Saving

Adding attic, basement and crawl space insulation keeps homes cooler in summer and warmer in winter. This job is best done by a professional, but the savings can add up to saving hundreds of dollars per year or more.

Have Your HVAC Serviced Regularly

HVAC maintenance is essential if you want to reduce energy costs. Heating and cooling accounts for approximately 50 percent of your total energy bill; tuning up your HVAC every year can cut energy costs by up to 40 percent. You’ll also save money on HVAC repairs because regularly-serviced equipment has up to 95 percent fewer unexpected breakdowns.

Insulate Your Hot Water Heater

Water heating accounts for almost 20 percent of your energy bill. You could save up to 16 percent on water heating costs by wrapping an older unit in a blanket of insulation of R-15 or less. You can also reduce costs by lowering the tank temperature from 140° to 120°.

Install Weatherstripping and Seal Household Leaks

Use a digital thermometer or a lighted candle around windows, chimneys, vents and skylights to identify leaks. Check plumbing pipes, electrical fixtures, basement walls and appliance vents and fill in small cracks with caulk and large holes with spray foam. Test exterior doorways for drafts and add felt or foam weatherstripping around leaky door frames.
