Slaying Energy Vampires

Something a lot of clients ask me is, “How can I save money on my energy bill?” Well, luckily there are some very tangible things that you can do that will help you get rid of what I like to call “energy vampires”. Energy vampires are those things around your home that suck energy – and money!

Here are a few of my all-time favorite ways to save money by slaying those energy vampires!

If you have any tips you’d like to share or if you have any questions about the current real estate market, please shoot me an email at benjamin@907homes.net or send me a message through either my blog or  Facebook page and I’d love to be of service!

SAVE MONEY BY SLAYING ENERGY VAMPIRES

Winter is coming in Alaska and for most of us, that means our heating bills increase. Every month, no matter what we do, that energy bill comes in the mail. With a bit of help, you can get your energy costs under control and get that bill looking leaner every month! Now, the only question is, what are you going to do with all those savings?

Select energy-efficient windows, skylight, door and garage doors when replacing existing ones. Storm windows, caulking, weather stripping and window treatments can all be used to reduce heat loss.

Always purchase energy-efficient appliances and be sure you always operate them in an efficient manner.

Unplug devices when they are not in use. (That toaster that gets used once a week is costing you money!)

Do all your laundry the same day. You’ll be able to take advantage of residual heat in the dryer and wash larger loads. Air dry when possible.

When it comes to lighting, only use task-lighting to provide enough light for what you are doing. Dimmers and energy-efficient light bulbs add to overall efficiency.

Keep the thermostat a couple of degrees less than normal to really cut energy costs. Start by turning it down at night or when you’re going to be out for a few hours. A programmable digital thermostat is a wonderful investment and will save you hundreds of dollars a year! Turn your heat off completely in the summer to really save money.

Do you have any tips or tricks?
