Energy Action Month

Reduce Your Energy Use at Home

Calculator with money - Energy

Did you know October is Energy Action Month? Help your household get involved, see below for some minor changes that you can make to help improve comfort, the environment, while also lowering your utility costs:

  • Schedule furnace maintenance with us! Since heating alone can account for half of a winter energy bill – you want to make sure it is in its proper, working condition.
  • Review ways to save on your water bills – from fixing leaks to updating appliances and changing water use habits. Learn more on our recent blog »
  • Clean or replace filters in your furnace, air conditioner, and heat pump.
  • Turn off and unplug appliances when not in use. Shut off lights in unoccupied areas (or install a timer) and unplug any equipment that still drains energy if left plugged in (ex: coffee makers, phone chargers, printers, etc).
  • Take advantage of natural light to heat your home! Open south-facing window curtains during the day to allow sunlight to heat your home. Close them up at night to reduce potential chill.
  • Insulate heating ducts in attics or crawlspaces – keeping them in good repair can prevent heat loss of up to 60 percent.
  • If you need to replace any systems, opt for ENERGY STAR labeled products which can cut energy bills by up to 30 percent.

For additional energy saving tips for the home, office, and facility – please visit Energy.gov. Remember, individual choices add up – help in getting others to use energy efficiently to better our environment and our energy future.

At Patterson Plumbing & Heating our plumbers, drain cleaning techs and home heating and air conditioning professionals can repair any problem with your home’s plumbing, furnace, boiler or air conditioning. Give us a call today at 719-544-4922.

Join us in celebrating Energy Action Month, a time we should work together to achieve greater energy security, a more robust economy, and a healthier environment for our children. Not sure how to participate? We’ve provided a list below of some things you can take care of within your own home – TODAY!

  1. Keep your water heater at 120 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Your furnace or heat pump should receive yearly maintenance – give us a call before the winter season kicks in full swing
  3. Turn off lights in unoccupied rooms and look to replace your normal light bulbs with compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) to save ¾ of electricity used
  4. Much like turning off lights when a run isn’t occupied – unplug appliances when not in use (chargers, coffee makers, printers, etc.)
  5. Install a programmable, ENERGY STAR labeled thermostat to adjust temperatures according to your daily schedule
  6. In the colder months, open curtains on your south facing windows during the day to let sunlight naturally heat your home (remember to close them at night to avoid chill from cold windows!)

These minor changes can promote energy efficiency to help the environment, improve your comfort, and keep cash in your wallet.

October is Energy Action Month

Did you know, October is also National Energy Action Month? As part of this year’s campaign, WaterSense has launched their ShowerBetter initiative, encouraging people to save water AND energy by switching out old shower heads for a water efficient model!

We all know how important showering is – it wakes us up in the morning, helps us relax in the evening, and refreshes us after exercise. Showering accounts for nearly 17% of indoor water use – for the average family this equals nearly 40 gallons per day. Each time you or your family member steps into the shower, energy is used to heat and deliver water to your showerhead. Opting to install an energy efficient, WaterSense labeled showerhead can save 2,900 gallons of water and more than $70 in energy and water costs each year!

To save even more water, keep your shower under 5 minutes long. 

These small changes can quickly add up in savings – not only for your own wallet, but can benefit the rest of the country as well. According to the EPA website, “If every home in the United States replaced existing showerheads with WaterSense labeled models, we could save more than 260 billion gallons of water and nearly $5.1 billion in water and energy costs across the country annually!”

Shower heads can sometimes be installed on your own and can easily be a nice bathroom upgrade. For shower head installations that require a bit more work, give the experts at Patterson Plumbing and Heating a call.
