Energy efficiency isn’t just something that environmentalists should be aiming for. It makes sense for everyone to make the changes to your home that will make it more energy efficient and save you some money. There’s no sense in letting the energy you’re paying for go to waste.

There are many different changes you can make to your home and habits. Some will cost no money at all, and others might be worthwhile, long-term investments. But every change makes a difference. Becoming more energy efficient will help the planet and your wallet, so what are you waiting for?

Insulate Your Loft and Walls

One of the best ways of making your home more energy efficient is to trap all the warm air in your home and stop it from escaping. You can do this by properly insulating your loft, walls and ceilings. A professional can do this, or you can do it yourself using a conventional insulation material or vacuum insulated panels.

Another way of stopping heat escaping is upgrading your windows. They should be double-glazed and properly sealed in, with no cracks visible around the edge.

Don’t Waste Energy Needlessly

Being more careful with how you use energy is the simplest and cheapest way of saving money and energy around the house. Don’t leave the lights on when they’re not needed and try not to leave appliances on when they’re not in use. You should even avoid leaving appliances on standby, turn them off completely whenever possible.

It’s also a good idea to switch your light bulbs to more efficient ones. Generally speaking, fluorescent light bulbs last a lot longer than incandescent ones.

Make Sure Everything is in Good Working Order

Old or faulty appliances and heating systems can use up more energy than fully functioning ones. Therefore, if your appliances are old and tired, it might be worth investing more modern and efficient new ones.

If your heating is not in full working order, you might not even notice. Get it checked regularly to make sure you aren’t wasting money and find a company that does heating repair in Albuquerque.

Go Green Where Possible

Adding solar panels to the roof of your house can be a great way to save money on energy bills. Clean, renewable energy is free once you’ve installed the solar panels, so you’ll only have to use unclean energy sources when the sun isn’t giving you the energy you need.

If you install a battery alongside the panels, you’ll be able to store excess energy to be used when it’s dark. Don’t let the initial expense put you off going green, the money you save, in the long run, is quite incredible!

Tailor the Temperature

You don’t need to spend money on energy on warm days, so make sure you are only using the heating when you need to. You could get a heating system that has built-in climate control. This will allow your system to react to every change in temperature without even having to put in any effort! What’s not to like about that?

Disclosure- I am a Superior Source Vitamin Ambassador and I am compensated to share their offers with my readers. All opinions are 100% my own.

Superior Source FALL Family Vitamin Health Pack Review and GiveawaySuperior Source Vitamins just announced their Fall Family Vitamin Health Pack.  This pack has something for everyone in your family.  I am especially excited for their 2 “energy” formulas- Quik Fix Instant Energy and Just Women’s Pep ‘n Energy.  I am always feeling tired and sluggish because of my Fibromyalgia and I am always looking for a more natural energy boost.  I asked about this differences in the 2 energy formulas and this is what I found out:  The Women’s Pep n’ Energy has more herbs in the proprietary base and a very small amount of caffeine, as naturally found in the Guarana seed extract.  The Quik Fix Instant Energy has less ingredients in the proprietary base but it contains a small amount (30 mg per serving) of added caffeine in each serving.  I have tried both and both gave me a boost of energy but the Quik Fix Instant Energy did give me more energy.  The Women’s Pep n’ Energy tastes like when you put powdered cinnamon on your tongue because it is made with cinnamon and the Quik Fix Instant Energy has a bitter orange taste.  I love how fast they dissolve under my tongue and how I don’t need water to take them.  They are great to keep in my purse for those days I need some extra pep in my step.
