Is Your Home Energy Efficient?

Is it too cold in the winter and too warm in the summer? Do you feel like your wallet is emptying quicker than usual? If you answered yes to either, maybe the real question you should be asking yourself if whether or not your home is energy efficient.

Here are a few things to take into consideration when trying to find out if your home is energy efficient.

The Age of Your Appliances

Your hand-me-down washer and dryer units are all probably wonderful appliances, but if they are not energy star certified, it’s time to upgrade. You may be spending money upfront, but according to Direct Energy, over just a 5 year span you can save over $300 on your electric bill just by switching to more energy efficient appliances.

 

Gaps Between Your Windows

Can you feel air coming through the cracks of your windows? If so, there’s a good chance that you’re turning up the heat or air because of these uncontrolled air leaks. By simply sealing these spots, Energy.gov says you can save around 10-20% on annual heating and cooling bills.

Start a Compost Pile

Reducing the amount of trash you produce daily by starting a compost pile in your backyard not only helps the environment, it can be used to fertilize your garden, where you can grow your very own organic fruits and vegetables.

Use Less Water

According the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), homeowners can save about $170 a year on average benefiting from changes to their water usage. Being conscious of running water while doing daily task like shaving or brushing your teeth can be helpful. Also, bathing typically uses 75 gallons of water compared to a shower that uses about 17.2 gallons on average.

Sun Filters Through Your Windows Most Of The Day

Even with sealing the unwanted air coming through gaps in your home, it could still heat up from the sun’s rays coming through the windows. Consider solar blocking drapery or installing sun screens in this case. When you install sun screens in your home, not only do you make your home more energy efficient, but you also get privacy and security from any wandering eyes outside, without the need of bulky fabric.

All Pro Shade Concepts specialize in creating custom sun screens. All Pro Shade Concepts even makes their screens by hand, so you know you’re getting a quality product. These sun screens can block 80-90% of the sun’s rays. Now your home is cooler, more secure, and there are less of the sun’s damaging rays making its way into your home.
