How to Make Your Delaware or Pennsylvania Home More Energy Efficient This Spring

One of those ways is introducing energy efficient upgrades and changes to lower your energy costs and make smarter choices for the environment.

There are many simple and inexpensive ways to increase your DE or PA home’s energy efficiency. Here are some tips to get you started:

Upgrade to energy-efficient lighting

One of the easiest ways to make your home more energy-efficient is to switch to LED light bulbs. They use up to 80% less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs and last much longer.

Seal air leaks

Air leaks around doors and windows can cause drafts, making your heating and cooling systems work harder. Use weather stripping and caulking to seal any gaps and cracks around your doors and windows.

Install a programmable thermostat

A programmable thermostat allows you to control the temperature in your home based on your schedule. This helps reduce energy consumption when you’re away from home or asleep.

Insulate your home

Insulating your home can help keep it warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Consider adding insulation to your attic, walls, and floors to prevent heat loss.

Upgrade to energy-efficient appliances

Energy-efficient appliances, such as refrigerators, washing machines, and dishwashers, use less energy and water than their older counterparts. When it’s time to replace your appliances, look for models that have earned the ENERGY STAR label.

Install low-flow fixtures

Low-flow showerheads and faucets can significantly reduce your water consumption. They use less water without sacrificing performance, helping you save money on your water bills.

Use natural light

Open your curtains and blinds during the day to let in natural light instead of relying on artificial lighting. This not only saves energy but also improves your mood and productivity.

Making your home in Delaware or Pennsylvania more energy-efficient doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. Start small and work your way up to bigger upgrades over time. Remember, every little bit helps!
