Crushing Winter’s Energy’s Costs With A Free App
This article on a creative way to bring down your winter energy cost is paid content that I thought could be very helpful. I know I found some good tips.
One of the biggest ways our budget takes an enormous wallop is during winter months. Rising utility costs and an increase in supply and demand takes a huge bite out of our budget when we’re just trying to stay warm. Thankfully, HomeSelfe, the makers of a free, downloadable energy-saving app, will put homeowners back in control of these rising utility costs.
While many of us are already using newer methods in an attempt to help contain these insane costs, like the installation of programmable “smart” thermostats, lowering our comfort settings, using more energy-efficient lighting solutions, but what about other “unseen” ways we could be saving? Homeselfe has found many hidden ways that we could be leaching money into the atmosphere and money out of our pockets.
Take A Picture – It Last Longer
Without revisiting playground days, HomeSelfe’s has a more revolutionary concept that’s similar to taking a “selfie” of your home and how it could be wasting energy, costing you more money and finding ways for homeowners to reap rewards. After installing the free app, HomeSelfe takes you on a quick tour of your house, asking some basic questions about these surroundings, and at the end you’re given a report with some recommendations.
Some are simple, like replacing light bulbs and others are more complex like if updating outdated appliances could save hundreds of dollars into the future. Other tips may include replacing weatherstripping or adding more insulation into your attic. While typical energy saving amounts could range from 5 to 15% or more, it’s difficult to measure considering each, individual household and the results given.
