One of the largest costs for homeowners in California is their home utility bills. Hot summers and fluctuating energy costs can leave customers feeling frustrated and left without options. Fortunately, there are a few tips that you can use around your home to help with the efficiency of your HVAC system and cut down your utility bills.

Energy Saving Tips for Your Home

 

Creating a “Smart” Home

Changing to Wifi-enabled programable thermostats, auto-shutoff outlet plugs and more can keep energy costs from increasing unnecessarily.

Adjusting Your Appliances Setting

Adjusting appliances doesn’t necessarily mean replacing all of your appliances although it is true that older appliances might draw more energy. In those cases, only run those appliances once they’re full, like a washing machine or dishwasher.

It’s also helpful to set the refrigerator and water heater temperatures to reasonable working temperatures so they’re not working hard to stay too high or too low.

Unplugging Unused Electronics

Checking your home for phantom energy costs. There are many items in your home that aren’t being consistently used but still consuming energy and costing you money. For example: coffee-makers, computers, cable boxes, printers, etc. Unplugging these pesky energy-suckers and you’ll be surprised how much you can cut down on your utility bills.

Efficiency Checks

Check for air leaks, aged weather-stripping, replacing HVAC filters every 6 months, etc. can save loads on cost and decrease energy consumption.

 

Above are the simple tips you can implement immediately to reduce your energy consumption and save more money. If you want to take things up a notch and save even more money in the long run, consider going solar. Investing in solar for your home is going to be the most impactful way to decrease your home energy bills.

At the time this article is written, the Federal Government is still offering incentives and rebates for solar energy customers. Going solar eliminates the ever-fluctuating energy costs for California residents and also adds value to your house if you decide to sell it.
