Winter can mean a variety of things to homeowners in Louisville, Kentucky, from hanging out with family to enjoying a cup of hot cocoa in front of the fire. Rarely does it cross your mind to roll out energy-saving tips for your family. However, doing so can reduce your energy usage, save money, and protect the planet. This winter, use new HVAC tech, proper maintenance, and other hacks to save cash and energy.
Get a Tune-Up
If you did just one thing this winter to save energy, make it a tune-up. With our furnace tuneup, you can assure that your heating system keeps humming along, even when the temperatures outside dip below freezing. Absent-minded homeowners might also enjoy our preventive maintenance plan, which means we contact you when it’s time to take a look at that furnace.
Upgrade to a Smart Thermostat
If you’re using an outdated programmable thermostat or even a manual or mercury-based thermostat, you’re overdue for an upgrade. Smart thermostats are the latest wave in thermostat technology that saves you cash as soon as you install them. While they work much like a programmable thermostat, they also learn your behavior, adjusting the temperature to your tastes. In addition, they furnish you with a monthly usage report and offer extra tips to curb excessive energy usage.
Switch to LED Lights
There’s nothing wrong with your old Christmas lights, but if you want to save cash, make the switch to LED lights. Most strand lighting is incandescent, which is the least efficient type of bulb on the market. While LED Christmas lights are more expensive, you’ll start to see your return on investment as soon as you get your first month’s bill. Plus, LED lighting has more options such as color-changing bulbs and graphic lighting that can move in tune with music of your choosing.
