Efficiency and Conservation First

Saving & conserving energy are the most cost-effective and simplest way to lower your home's energy usage and reduce utility costs

Even though it is possible to depend on the wind and sun to power our homes, the first step before investing in RE is Energy Efficiency. For every dollar that you invest in your home to make it more energy efficient, you will be saving three dollars in buying renewable energy.  Without efficiency, the cost of either wind or solar will never make sense and take many years to pay off

The average U.S home consumes about 1200 KWH of electricity each month. How much of that can you save? Being energy efficient at home involves having some basic elements like high insulation values, high SEER rating heating and cooling systems, low-e double pane windows and smart appliances

The first step homeowners can take against high utility bills is limiting waste. Wasting energy is the biggest enemy of an energy efficient home. You might be surprised how easy and inexpensive is to take control of your energy bills through conservation and low-cost energy improvements

If you are thinking about doing some remodeling or building a new home, by all means boost energy efficiency at the same time. You will be saving a great amount of money and time too. On the other hand, energy conservation usually needs no investment upfront. Conservation is all about changes in habit and being conscious about energy use. Some no-cost energy behaviors are:

  • Lower your water heater temperature to 120 degrees F
  • Turn lights off when leaving a room
  • Keep objects away from air registers
  • Use cold water to wash your clothes
  • Turn off TV and electronics when not in use
  • Take showers instead of baths
  • Do full loads of dishwasher, clothes washer, and dryer
  • Clean lint filter in the dryer after every load and more..........
