Energy Saving Help

Everyone can use Energy saving ideas. Well, there’s a lot of things you can do regarding home energy and their costs. I signed up at My Hohm Center and it was free. Not only can you find ways of saving with home energy but I saw how I could save money other ways as well.

One such way was to hibernate my computer when not in use and save up to $60 per year. We are also in the market for a new central heat and air unit so their suggestion was when replacing our central air conditioner, choose a high-efficiency model with a SEER equal to 16 and that gave savings up to $445 per year plus adding a programmable thermostat saved another $33 per year. There are quite a few ways to save with your home appliances like buying an energy efficient refrigerator.

There were all kinds of useful information about saving on energy costs. Things like lowering the temperature setting on our hot water heater, replacing incandescent bulbs with higher efficiency bulbs (we already do this), having our ducts professionally sealed (will have to wait on the central heat and air unit for this one), insulating our hot water heater with a jacket, insulating hot and cold water pipes (I believe this is done too), and replacing our windows with double paned, solar glass. We don’t have those but we do have the solar screens installed so that helps a lot.

The point to all of this is that you can go there as well and enter your home’s information and find out what is best for you so that you can save the most money on energy costs such as heating and cooling. Best of all, it’s free to sign up and use so there’s no reason not to give them a try and see how much money you can save in a year’s time by taking their advice.
