You’ll need all the energy you can get to make it through the day. When it comes to your home, it’s all about cutting back. Being a green-minded homeowner, you already know and exercise some of the basics, including keeping the thermostat a bit lower, using energy-saving light bulbs and unplugging appliances when not in use. These small fixes are great ways to start, but there are other activities that can really make a difference and ensure your home runs on less fuel.
Start with a Home Energy Audit
First things first, you need to know exactly where you can conserve energy. By getting an energy audit, you’ll get an analysis on how much energy you’re saving, where you can conserve, and how much you’ll save in the long run. If you’re thinking of a major home improvement, search for a local and certified professional who can assess your needs.
Save up to 80% of your Heating Energy Cost with Solar Hot Water
Water accounts for an estimated 35% of the energy bill if you have an electric hot water system. Save on this cost by replacing your system with an Edwards Roof Top Frost Free System. This uses the highly efficient heat transferring properties of Glycol, a special anti-freeze fluid, to transfer the absorbed energy to heat water indirectly. Not only does this save on home energy costs, but it is also made from stainless steel, making the systems virtually maintenance-free and last a lifetime.
