National Cut Your Energy Costs Day
You’ve been living in your house all winter and it’s cold. Have you ever wondered if there was a way to get rid of such high bills and still live comfortably in your home?
National Cut Your Energy Costs Day gives you the chance to look at your home and life in general and identify ways to reduce your energy consumption. This is not just for winter, but it’s also a chance to look at the whole year and figure out how you can make your energy bills less expensive.
Heating costs have always been a problem as long as there was heating equipment that you could maintain. This has been a problem since the time we moved to cities. At first, it was import wood and coal for the furnace and fireplace, but then it became a matter of paying the local utility for gas, oil, and, in the modern age, electricity.
National Cut Your Energy Costs Day doesn’t just focus on heating. It also includes heating costs (and cooling) These are the highest-priced bills we can make throughout the year. The CEEA (Canadian Energy Efficiency Alliance), was the first to establish this day. National Cut Your Energy Costs Day can help you make your year more bearable in the cost department.
National Cut Your Energy Costs Day can be celebrated in the best possible way. Get in to assess your whole home or hire a professional to do it. Heating and cooling are just two of many things you should be aware of.
Start by pricing the cost to install a programmable thermostat. It is easy to forget to turn off the heat when you leave the house, and waste energy heating unused spaces. Programmable thermostats allow you to set the time and day when the temperature is to be adjusted. This will help you keep your home at the ideal temperature, without spending any money.
Next, take a look at the appliances. You should also take a look at your appliances. Older appliances can be very inefficient and cost you a lot more in energy. You could end up paying a lot for refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers, clothes washers, and all other units in your home.
Next, you need to inspect the insulation in your house. You may notice extreme differences in the heating and cooling costs of your home if you have inefficient insulation. Winter is the best time of year to start to understand your options. If your home develops icicles or has large areas of snow melting off of it, there’s a good chance that you have an insulation leak. This could be costing you money every hour.
This is only the beginning. National Cut Your Energy Costs Day offers a great opportunity to get a full assessment. Contact a local professional today!
