Home Energy Checklist to Do this Month

Apr 07, 2009

Prior articles have addresses what to do ‘today’ to make your home more energy efficient.  This article will look at more in-depth, time-consuming activities for the homeowner to do over a weekend.

According to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy here are some bigger steps that you can do today what can lead to big results:

  • Collect your utility bills. Separate electricity and fuel bills. Target the largest bill for energy conservation remedies.
  • Crawl into your attic or crawlspace and inspect for insulation. Is there any? How much? Is it enough?
  • Seal up the largest air leaks in your house – the ones that whistle on windy days or feel drafty. The worst culprits are cut-throughs for pipes (plumbing), gaps around chimneys and recessed lights in insulated ceilings, and unfinished spaces behind cupboards and closets.
  •  Install a clock thermostat to set your thermostat back automatically at night and when you are typically away from your house.
  • Schedule an energy audit (ask your utility company or state energy office) for more expert advice on your home as a whole.

 

The more proactive steps taken will go a long way to making your home more energy efficient. Saving energy will make a healthier home and helps protect the environment. Contact a qualified contractor or local utility office to get the best advice possible on how to make your home more energy efficient.
