Ways to Increase Your Home’s Energy Efficiency

May 04, 2022

What does it mean to have an energy-efficient home, and how can you achieve this? The answer is simple. An energy-efficient home has features that are designed to conserve and reduce energy use. This can benefit the homeowner by potentially lowering the cost of monthly energy bills. Increasing your home’s energy efficiency does not have to be a daunting task. In fact, there are simple steps you can take to begin the process.

Daily Efforts

You can begin improving your home’s energy efficiency in small ways on a daily basis. For example, something as simple as replacing the lightbulbs in your home with energy-efficient ones can make an impact. Additionally, taking advantage of natural light in your home instead of using your home’s artificial lighting for small periods of time during the day can add up over time.

Did you know your windows are among the most important parts of your home when it comes to energy usage? It’s estimated that heat gain and heat loss through windows is responsible for over 25% of residential heating and cooling energy use. This means if the current windows on your home are not energy efficient, they can potentially be a contributor to high energy bills each month. Replacing the windows on your home with more energy-efficient windows can make a large impact on your home’s overall energy efficiency.
