Spring has officially sprung! Here are a few energy-saving tips that will enhance your spring cleaning and put more money in your pocket.

Start Dusting

 

Dust prevents electronics from running at maximum capacity, so keeping the vents clean helps improve air circulation. Dusting the refrigerator coils makes it easier for your fridge to keep food cold, saving money on your electric bill.
Change the Drapes

 

New drapes will brighten your room, but investing in some insulated, thermal-backed drapes for your windows will help keep your home cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
Get a Home Energy Audit

 

Call in a professional auditor to help you pinpoint where your home is losing energy and what you can do to save money. Efficiency upgrades could save 5-30% on your energy bill.

tip 

 

You probably still remember where
the cold drafts blew
in, so now’s the time
to seal gaps around windows and doors. Weatherstripping prevents air leaks, which will also cause your air conditioner to work harder.
