Tips on How to Make Your Home More Energy Efficient

Taking the initiative to lower energy costs will save you money for as long as you live in your home. It will also help to reduce your home’s carbon footprint.

Consider these:

  • Update or install Energy Star certified windows (This alone can lower your energy bills by 7 to 15%)
  • Update or upgrade to energy efficient lighting
  • Install dimmer light switches, so that bulbs do not always have to be turned on at full power
  • Check or replace your furnace to an energy efficient model (Some retailers will even offer cost saving rebates)

Energy efficient updates could potentially be a major selling feature. In the world of real estate, “Energy-­efficient” is a desirable adjective, second only to “safe community” on a home buyers’ wish list.
