How to Make Your Home More Energy Efficient

Energy costs are higher than they’ve ever been and are projected to keep climbing. The consequences of burning fossil fuels are constant reminders to homeowners across the world that our wellbeing is dependent on the ways we treat the Earth. Preserving the planet is an astronomically large task, but starting at home is the easiest way to enact big change. Making your home more energy efficient can save you thousands of dollars and save the planet!

Turn down the thermostat

The moment the temperature drops off, we are quick to run to our thermostats and blast the heat all the way up. Since we want to keep our homes warm and toasty at all times, we tend to leave the heat on all day and all night, regardless of if anyone is home or not. In a study conducted by the U.S. Department of Energy, it was found that lowering your thermostat by 10 to 15 degrees during the work day reduced wasted energy and resulted in 5 percent to 15 percent in annual savings. Investing in a smart thermometer will allow you to control the temperature settings in your home from your smartphone!
