Nothing frustrates a homeowner more than receiving an astronomically high electricity bill. You do not have to be at the mercy of the power company. Here are some things that you can do to conserve energy, both for the sake of the environment and your wallet.

Undergo an Energy Audit

Sometimes, your electricity usage ends up inadvertently higher because of the amount that you waste. You do not even need to be consciously using too much energy. You can have energy leaking or escaping that causes your usage to spike. An energy audit can catch that as well as other unnecessary surplus usage and can pay for itself through reduced electricity bills.

Use a Smart Thermostat

When you keep the temperature at a certain level even when you are not home, it results in a waste of electricity. A smart thermostat can adjust itself based on pre-programmed criteria, keeping you from using energy when you do not need it. Your smart thermostat can even give you alerts about when you need to repair your HVAC system or change filters, helping you use the system more intelligently. A smart thermostat can potentially save you hundreds in energy costs each year. Controlled Climate Services in Kennesaw can help you save energy by providing the options available when it comes to your HVAC system.

Replace Your Windows

The amount of energy that escapes through inefficient windows can increase the amount of energy necessary to heat your home by up to 25%. Heat can also be gained through windows in warm environments, raising your costs of air conditioning. Single-pane windows are a prime culprit of energy loss through your windows. Replacing them with double-pane windows can cut down on your waste of energy.

Change Your Light Bulbs

You will want to stop using traditional incandescent light bulbs. Switching to energy-efficient alternatives can use up to 80% less energy. Consider buying these in bulk to save money, and you will never need to buy light bulbs again.
