The Quick and Easy Things You Can Do To Save You Money on Your Home Energy Expenses



Even though many people do not believe how much difference a few small modifications
to your home can make when it comes to your energy costs, but it is true. There are
a few specific things that you can do to your home that will save you a great deal
of money over the years. If you want to know what you need to do to save money on
your home energy costs, continue reading this article.



One thing that many people forget to do is change their furnace filters on a regular
basis. A lot of people know they have to change the filter that works to bring in
air to the furnace but are not aware that there are also filters at different points
of the air flow in the home. Make sure that all of your furnace filters are clean
so that the furnace does not have to use more power than necessary to adequately
heat or cool your home. This is more expensive than buying new filters. Some
filters can even just be cleaned and replaced once they are dry, which can also save
you a lot of money in just a few years.


A very cheap way to keep the heat or air conditioning in your home and the outside
weather out is by using weather stripping and caulk. One of the biggest culprits
when it comes to letting the outside air in are your doors. Putting a high quality
weatherstrip around your door from the inside can do a lot to keep out the hot or
cold weather, which will save you a great deal on your energy costs. You should
also look around your home to find other areas that could be letting in air from the
outside. Common areas include windows and various places that pipes may enter your
home. If the cracks are rather small, you can use caulk to seal them off.
Oftentimes you can just put your hand around window sills to check for air leaks.
If you feel any air coming in, you should just apply the caulk to the entirety of
the window, as once you close off one gap the air will try to find a new place to
enter.



If you pay for your water, you know how quickly water costs have gone up in recent
years. There are, however, many things that you can do to save on your water
expenses. There are toilets that use one third of the water that traditional
toilets use, which adds up very quickly. Another water saving device is a low flow
shower head. Some people assume that low flow means that it lacks water pressure,
but that is not the case thanks to the advancement of technology geared towards
energy conservation.



As you have seen after reading this article, making your home energy efficient is
easier and more convenient than ever before. If you want to save money and help the
environment at the same time, put the tips in this article to use.
