  • Opening Intro -

    Throughout the year, you look for ways to save energy and money in your home.

    You want to stay green, but it always proves a greater challenge than you initially think.

-------------------------------------

Here are just a few easy spring energy-saving tips for your home that will put you on the path to a smaller carbon footprint and a smaller power bill.

Get UV Safe Windows

Windows are a great source of light and heat. As the spring comes, you may only want one of those things. The sunlight coming into your home can be scorching if it is already hot outside.

Instead of running your fans and air conditioning all the time, you can invest in some energy-saving windows. There are window options to help you save money by keeping out those UV rays and keeping in the cool air.

Solar Power

A great way to capitalize on spring’s extended daylight is to use solar power. The sunlight is a resource that will not be going away anytime soon. You can harness this energy and use it to power some, if not all, of your home.

There are various methods to capture this solar power, such as solar panels or solar shingles. If you want to save more energy in the long term, go with solar panels.

Use Less Hot Water

This point can seem crazy to many, but hot water is a problematic source of high energy bills. People use hot water all day to wash dishes and themselves, but you can cut back your use.

A little less time spent using hot water every day can add up to hours throughout the year. Only run the dishwasher when it is full, don’t hang out for too long in the shower, and when you are washing your hands, turn the water off unless you are directly using it.

Open Your Windows

Spring is a variable season full of different weather and temperatures, so this is not always applicable, but it is still vital. When it is a bit cooler, you can open your window to let a cool breeze lower the temperature in your home.

The air will also create circulation in your home to eliminate stale air. Additionally, using natural light instead of your lights and lamps can lower energy costs.
