Energy Efficient Measures That Actually Save You Money

Over the past five years, homeowners have seen their energy bills continue to rise. This surge in utility cost could be attributable to a number of factors, including an increase in average home size or an overall uptick in the number of devices within the home that use electricity. Additionally, some homeowners find that they’re losing money each month because they have an HVAC unit that is either too big or too small for their home. Also, there is a very real possibility that the actual cost of energy is going up.

Whatever the cause may be, there are a number of surefire ways to lower your monthly energy bills and save your family some money. Del-Air, the leaders in air conditioning services, shares their tips:

  • Seal All Possible Air Leaks: Take the time to plug any air leaks to save money on your energy bill. In particular, pay close attention to your basement and your attic, as these areas are where a majority of the cold air enters and the hot air escapes.
  • Use Energy-Efficient Light Bulbs: To further cut down on your electric bill each month, be sure to install Energy Star certified light bulbs throughout your home. Not only do energy-efficient bulbs use up to 90% less energy than their traditional counterparts, but they also last 10 to 25 times longer. Moreover, each bulb can save you upwards of $80 in energy costs over the course of its lifetime.
  • Reduce Your Water Heater Temp: Believe it or not, water heating can account for up to 12% of your electric bill every month. However, for every 10 degrees you lower the temperature on your water heater, you can expect to cut around 5% of that cost. In order to help your water heater run more efficiently, try lowering the temperature to 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Buy a New Air Conditioner and Save: It’s a fact that a new air conditioning unit can help you save money on your monthly energy bill. With their higher efficiency ratings, our ENERGY STAR models can help you save up to 30-50% on your cooling costs.

This was my first experience with Del-Air and they were prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on the same day for a maintenance visit, which I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated. The office staff was pleasant and so was the technician that came out to service my air conditioners. Thanks…
