How to Celebrate National Cut Your Energy Costs Day - Image 1

This Thursday, January 10, is National Cut Your Energy Costs Day, a day established to encourage people to look for ways to reduce energy use and save on energy bills. What better way to celebrate than to schedule a home energy audit! Dr. Energy Saver uses specialized tools to assess where your energy use is coming from and tell you how to reduce heat loss.

If you don't have the right amount of insulation in your attic and walls, you could be paying twice as much as you need to in energy bills. And we've all felt the drafts through cracks around windows and doors, but your home could also have air leaks around electrical outlets, light switches and ceiling fixtures, plumbing pipes and even inside your ductwork. All of these leaks make your furnace work harder to heat your rooms -- which uses a lot of unneccessary energy! We can seal those leaks for good, allowing your home to stay warm and cozy all winter and cooler in the summer! 

Here are some other was to cut energy costs:

  • Schedule a furnace maintenance appointment. A clean, well maintained furnace  can lower energy consumption by 10%. If your furnace is older than 10 years, consider replacing it with an energy efficient one. 
  • Change your air filter every other month. An unclogged filter allows better airflow which reduces energy consumption.
  • Lower the thermostat when you'll be away from home and at night. Better yet, buy a programmable thermostat.
  • Turn off lights as you leave the room, and switch to LED bulbs.
  • Only run the dishwasher and washing machine when they are full.
  • Lower your water heater temperature to 120 degrees.
