When you own a home, there are all sorts of money saving opportunities available to you. With technology continually improving, you can upgrade your house to go green and use less electricity while also making your home safer. If you do own your home, here are a few of the best money saving electrical upgrades you can make with a residential electrician.
Complete Home Wiring For Older Homes
Do you own an older home? Houses dating back to as recent as the 1980s offer great character and may still be structurally sound, but wiring even 30 years ago is nowhere near as sophisticated as it is today. It means you may be bleeding electricity, which also puts your home at risk for a potential electrical fire. A home inspection and re-wiring will improve safety while slashing your electrical utility every month. It is the home upgrade that keeps giving.
A programmable thermostat is one of the best ways to save money in your home. A smart thermostat takes your home money saving to the next level as it can learn your habits and adjust the temperature accordingly. Smart thermostat integrates with the day’s weather and also detect if anyone is inside the home. This kind of an upgrade is a one time expense that will drastically cut your energy usage during both the hot and cold months of the year.
High-Efficiency Water Heater
Whether you want to cut down on energy consumption or you have a large family and are tired of showers running out of hot water, a high-efficiency water heater is the perfect electrical upgrade. These upgrades do not use a tank, but instead, allow the water to flow through a series of heating coils. This way, you have nearly instant hot water which never runs out. Because there is no tank to heat up over and over, you both cut down on energy usage and water usage as you don’t need to wait for the water to heat up before starting the bath or washing your dishes.
