How much would you spend for an amazing machine that does a great job saving energy dollars in your Cleveland-area home? Act now and you can start saving today! It’s your amazing brain, and with it you can make a few quick fixes to start cashing in on energy efficiency. So start saving energy dollars today with these quick tips.
Tips for Saving Energy Dollars Today
- Go to your water heater and reset the temperature for 120 degrees. Avoid scalding older and younger members of the household, but also save energy with the lower setting. Your water will still be plenty hot for that morning shower, too. You might even be able to afford the marathon showers your teenagers take!
- Enlist your kids to save energy. Play “Count the Expensive Lights,” the fun-for-all-ages game that identifies wasteful light bulbs. Which ones are those? They are incandescent bulbs—the old kind, like Edison invented. They heat up, they fight your air conditioning, and they are energy hogs. Replace them with either compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) or, better, light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
- If your Cleveland-area home has a water bed, keep it covered. Rumpled bedclothes may have looked totally groovy in 1975, but a sheet, blanket and bedspread insulate the expensively heated water in the waterbed, saving heating dollars during the 16 hours a day the bed is not in use.
But Wait, There's More!
- Call out your appliances for inspection. Give them the once-over, and if they are more than a decade old, show them the way out. Energy efficient appliances, such as those with the federal Energy Star label, will do double duty performing better than old models and saving energy dollars.
- It’s a dirty job, but it must be done: replace or clean filters on your Cleveland home’s furnace or heat pump, and air conditioner. Clean filters boost efficiency, and that means saving energy dollars at every start-up.
These fast fixes just begin to scratch the surface of ways to save. For more great methods of saving money on energy around your Cleveland-area home, contact us at P.K. Wadsworth Heating & Cooling.
