Saving Energy at Home

home savings , , , ,

Homes throughout the New York area often deal with unreasonably high electricity bills. Though some people accept the reality as inevitable, many realize that with a bit of effort they can reduce energy use, and thereby spending. First, consult your energy provider, like IDT Energy. Most companies will be able to assess your monthly use and make several useful suggestions.

Next, ask yourself the following questions from Energy Savers:

  • How much money do you spend on energy?
  • What are your greatest energy losses?
  • Do energy-saving measures provide additional benefits that are important to you, like increased comfort from installing double-paned, efficient windows?
  • How long do you plan to own your current home?
  • How much time do you have for maintenance and repairs?

In addition, simple behavioral changes and habits can significantly reduce energy use in your home. Discuss with family members or roommates, and be sure to stick with new policies.
