You just spent hundreds of dollars on Holiday gifts. Now you need to save up for other occasions and home improvement projects, but how? By saving money on your utility bill. Here are some tips on ways to cut your home energy costs.
Install Skylight windows- increases the amount of natural sunlight that enters, warming up your home in the winter.
Interior Shades– Having an interior shade in your home helps reduce the interior temperature by up to 20 degrees Fahrenheit.
Tint Windows–films reduce the cost of cooling by blocking up to 79% of the sun’s heat.
Cellular Shades– Cellular shades trap air in the “honeycomb” structure to limit the amount of warm air that escapes and acts as a buffer to prevent cold air from getting in.
Install an Energy Star–certified ceiling fan- This type of fan is 50% more efficient than others and can keep your home four degrees warmer in the winter by circulating the heat throughout the room.
Switch to a natural-gas water heater– This uses less than half the energy of an electric one, and turn the setting down to 120 degrees.
