How to Make Your Home More Energy-Efficient

How to Make Your Home More Energy-Efficient

Energy-efficiency is an important factor for homeowners to consider when they’re taking stock of their monthly expenses. In fact, homeowners typically end up spending too much on energy usage—and a lot of that energy they’re paying for is actually going to waste. Because of this, monitoring the overall energy consumption of your household and taking steps to lower it is key to protecting your bank account. This is how to make your home more energy-efficient and only pay what you have to on your next bill.

Switch to LED Light Bulbs

If you’re still using incandescent light bulbs in your home’s lighting fixtures, you could find yourself paying for more energy output than necessary. This is because these types of bulbs tend to draw a lot of electricity, and only some of it actually goes towards lighting them up—the rest turns into heat. As such, one of the best ways to increase your home’s overall energy-efficiency is to switch to LED bulbs, which use significantly less electricity.

Invest in Baseboard Heater Covers

You can also conserve energy by finding a quality baseboard heater cover for your old baseboard heating unit. These models are incredibly effective at heating homes on their own, but their design can make it difficult for them to properly distribute heat throughout a room. This results in the need to turn up the thermostat to get the home closer to the desired temperature. However, baseboard heater covers have specialized vents to better radiate and distribute heat—making it easier to heat a home for less money.

Seal Any Door and Window Drafts

Another effective way to make your home more energy efficient is to seal any openings that could be allowing excess energy to escape. As the home ages and shifts with the outdoor weather conditions, openings that allow climate-controlled air to escape could form—especially around doors and windows. This often results in you needing to adjust the heater or air conditioning to accommodate. If you suspect you’re paying too much for your utilities, search for any drafts and seal off their sources.
