Lower Your Energy Costs

From compact fluorescent light bulbs to ENERGY STAR-rated appliances, consumers are interested in the latest and greatest “green,” energy-efficient products. While these products help homeowners make an impact, many consumers may overlook basic steps they can take to conserve energy in their home and lower energy costs, especially during winter months.

In fact, the Department of Energy reports that the typical American family spends more than $1,600 a year on home utility bills. And heating can account for almost half of the average family's winter energy bill. Experts recommend that consumers use basic winterizing practices and evaluate the latest heating systems to prepare their homes for colder weather.

Home maintenance and preparation should include:

  • Sealing leaks around doors and windows.

  • Adding weather-stripping or replacing worn stripping around doors and windows.

  • Inspecting and cleaning chimneys.

  • Caulking gaps where needed.

  • Checking insulation.  Focus on crawl spaces, basements, walls, floors.

  • Vacuuming vents and other heating components.

  • Consider replacing old windows and heating systems with newer, more energy-efficient models.

  • Replacing furnace filters.

    “There are quick, cost-effective ways to manage your energy expenditures this winter, like having a trusted, local heating and cooling contractor conduct a routine maintenance check on your system,” says Kevin Dudash of Bryant Heating & Cooling Systems. “Additionally, a dealer can provide information about larger investments a homeowner can make to reduce energy costs associated with the winter season.”
