Pay Less for Home Energy Bills

Darren Kincaid - Wednesday, October 11, 2017

Central Plumbing and Heating, Chesapeake, VAEvery home owner wants to know how to save money on energy bills. Combined, Americans use nearly one million dollars worth of energy every minute.

Here are some helpful tips that can lead to cutting down on your overall energy costs:

Heating and Cooling

Insulating your home's walls and ceilings and using caulk and weather stripping to plug air leaks near doors and windows saves 20 to 30 percent on your home heating and air-conditioning bills.

One of the easiest ways to cut down on heating and cooling costs is to simply turn your thermostat's heat down a few degrees cooler than you normally would in the winter and turning your air-conditioning up a few degrees warmer than you normally would in the summer. For every degree that you adjust your home's temperature, you will reduce your home's energy use by 1 to 3% each month and will see a similar price reduction when you receive your monthly bill.

Close the doors of any rooms that aren't being used to contribute to a reduction in the amount of heating or air-conditioning that you will need in your home. Keep large pieces of furniture away from any heating registers or air-conditioning ducts and if you have a chimney, make sure that the flue is closed when your chimney is not in use to keep large amounts of air from entering or exiting your home.

Around the House

Clean or replace air filters every few months since more energy is lost when air conditioners and furnaces have to work harder to push air through a dirty filter. This simple task can cut down on 5 percent of the energy that you use in your home.
