Ever wonder what you could do – or not do – in your home to save money on your energy bills?
A good place to start is to get rid of any “energy vampires” you may have in your home. These are TVs, lamps, appliances and whatever else you leave plugged in all the time, but rarely use. They are using energy and costing you money even though you are not actively using them.
So, put your TV on a power strip and turn them off when you are not at home and while you are sleeping. Also, unplug lamps and kitchen appliances that you don’t use on a regular basis.
While this is valuable information that everyone should take advantage of, you should also find out how to save energy and money on your home’s biggest energy burner – your air conditioner. A smart investment is to tune-up your air conditioning for energy savings and reduce a few hundred pounds of carbon in the air. Then there are even better returns on your investment if your unit is getting old. A new “high-efficiency” air conditioner can save you between 24-40% on your usual utilities and get rebates up to $1100!
That is definitely worth investigating!
