Conduct a Home Energy Audit

A local electrician can conduct a home energy audit on your house or apartment to find areas that may be using more electricity than necessary or issues that are causing a rise in your bills. Problems like an under-insulated attic, poorly insulated windows, older appliances, and air leaks or drafts are often found during audits. Once the culprits have been identified, you can schedule an appointment with your local electrician or another contractor to remedy the issues.

Weatherproof Your Home

You can also consider taking some steps to help weatherproof your home to lower your energy bills. This can involve tasks like installing a door draft stopper, snuggling your water tank with an insulated blanket, and weatherproofing your doors and windows.

Invest in a Programmable Thermostat

A programmable thermostat allows you to have more control over your heating system. You can program it to keep certain temperatures depending on the time of day so you aren’t heating your house or apartment while you’re not home. Additionally, many smart thermostats can be controlled from your phone, so you have the ability to monitor your system no matter where you are.

Consider Transitioning to Solar Energy

While solar energy may not be an immediate way to start saving money, most solar panel installations only take a few days, so it’s pretty close. If transitioning to solar and creating your own green energy is something you’re interested in, GreenPoint Solar and Electrical can help with that too.
