There are so many ways your home just bleeds money every single month. The biggest area is the energy used within your home. If you found ways to reduce the amount of energy while improve the quality of services you receive, you’d probably be interested, right? Well, we have a host of different options available, all of which not only improve the functionality of your home but also the efficiency of your home.
First, you may want to consider having new insulation installed within your home. This is one of the best ways to improve the energy efficiency of your home all the way around. Depending on what your home is made out of and the current state of the insulation, you may experience a substantial amount of energy loss while heating and cooling your home. In Tulsa, you know it becomes rather hot in the summer, and yet still can experience cold winters. This means you rely on insulation throughout the year. Having new and improved insulation installed will go a long way in saving you money.
From a new water heater to air conditioner, these major appliances play a large role in efficient homes. Any aging HVAC equipment can increase your month energy bills often by over $100, which means installing a brand new AC unit, water heater or furnace can end up saving you thousands of dollars in just a few short years, more than paying for itself in the long run. Plus, energy efficient homes are also far more valuable, and if you consider selling your home sometime in the future, having new appliances goes a long way.
Did you know plumbing can have a big impact on energy loss within your house? This is an area often overlooked by many home owners, yet it costs them in the end. As hot water travels from the water heater to your shower, sink, bathtub or other faucet, it loses heat as the pipes are not insulated. In order to become one of the most efficient homes around, you need to look into insulating your plumbing. This cuts energy lose and helps your home save money.
