10 Energy-Efficient Tips for Your Spring Cleaning

10 Energy-Efficient Tips for Your Spring Cleaning

Making your home energy-efficient while you do your spring cleaning isn’t complicated, expensive or time-consuming. What better time to upgrade your home’s energy-usage status than while you are spring cleaning? Efforts can be very much worth it in order to have truly clean, healthy air indoors. Following are 10 energy efficient tips for your spring cleaning:

  1. Washing your loads of laundry using cold water can save you about $63.00 per year
  2. Be sure to change your furnace filters on a regular basis, about once every 30 days. Dirty filters will slow down air flow, making your system work harder and increasing your energy bills.
  3. Switch your faucets and shower heads to water-conserving low-flow counterparts.
  4. Turn down the temperature on your water heater to 130° F. This will save energy and money; also, wrap your water storage tank in a specially designed blanket to retain more heat. These are available from your furnace repair service in Elizabethtown, PA.
  5. Make the effort to seal air leaks and to properly insulate around doors and windows. You’ll not only increase the comfort value of your home, but will also save up to 20% on your heating and cooling bills.
  6. Take advantage of the benefits your window shades, curtains and blinds provide. In the winter, open them during the day to allow warm sunlight in, and close them at night. During the summer, keep them drawn during the day over the windows through which the hot sun filters.
  7. Have everyone in the house make it a habit to turn off all lights, appliances, and electronic devices when they are not in use. For several items together within an area, power strips can really make it easy to turn on and off several items at once.
  8. Make the switch to energy-efficient light bulbs. You can reduce energy consumption by as much as 80% with the use of incandescent lights, halogen lights, CFLs and LEDs.
  9. Having EC&S install a programmable thermostat in your home can save up to 10% or more on heating and cooling costs. In addition, your home will be more comfortable as it remains at a consistent temperature.
  10. When buying appliances and similar consumer products, always look for those that have the Energy Star label. It’s the government symbol of energy efficiency, and items with this label can save you up to 30% on your electricity bills.
