Reduce utility bills

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.

Tips for Reducing Your Utility Bills This Summer

It’s not uncommon to see unusually higher energy bills during the summer months. After all, your air conditioning is working to keep your home comfortable, kids and guests can be in and out of the house, and extended vacations can have your home working on overdrive when not needed! Since your wallet shouldn’t have to feel such heavy summer time woes, see below for some tips for reducing your utility bills this season:

Unplug – Be sure to not only turn off devices but unplug them as well! Many still use energy even when in the off position. Don’t want to be bothered unplugging? Opt for a Smart Strip which will automatically cut power when devices don’t need it.

Keep doors and vents shut – Keep doors and vents closed to rooms that are not in use. No need to waste energy cooling off a guest room with no guests!

Turn off lights – Similar to our previous tip, keep lights off in rooms not in use. You may also want to make an effort to keeps light off during the day and instead rely on natural light to brighten the home.

Add insulation – Perhaps not too much can get through a crack in the wall, but one important thing that can is air. Your home can easily lose cool air (or warm air in the winter) by drifting outside through these spaces. Fill these gaps with insulation to reduce energy costs!

Take advantage of vacation settings – Whether its for your water heater or thermostat, if you know you’ll be away from the house for extended time adjust their settings to vacation mode. This way they aren’t working as hard to cool or heat your home.

Hang laundry outdoors – Bypass the dryer and let your clothing air-dry outside! Dryers can be a huge energy zap, so give them a break when not absolutely needed.

Call for AC maintenance – The air conditioning experts here at Patterson Plumbing will help make sure your unit is operating as efficiently as possible. Also make sure you have been changing your air filter, a dirty filter can easily restrict air flow!
