· Sealing a home’s exterior can save 10-25% of heating costs. You’ll want to focus on the common places for leaks and various types of caulks, weather-stripping and foam gaskets for exterior wall electrical outlets and light switch plates.
· A shaded outdoor Central AC condenser unit can save up to 10% on cooling, but make sure airflow is not restricted. Clean out leaf debris taking care of the coils and keep the large line well insulated.
· Each degree adjustment on your thermostat can save up to 4% on your energy bill. Preferred settings are 78 degrees Fahrenheit in the Summer time and 68 in Winter. Ceiling fans on when you are in a room will make the temperature feel more comfortable.
· Refrigerators use more energy than any other appliance. Clean the coils at least two times a year under the unit to save energy and keep the unit working well longterm. A long brush from the home supply store makes this easy.
· Adjust the hot water heater to 120 degrees Fahrenheit or Medium and drain the unit once a year to avoid sediment buildup.
