Fall energy efficiency tips

energy efficiencyDespite a late-season comeback by summer this year, cooler autumn weather will eventually make its way to Montgomery and Bucks counties – and with it will come the first heating bills of the season.

If you want to keep those bills as low as possible, try these great bang-for-your-buck energy efficiency hacks:

Free efficiency fixes

Moderate cost-efficiency fixes

Efficiency upgrades

  1. Boost your insulation – Most Pennsylvania homes – especially older ones – are under-insulated. A one-time investment in proper insulation can cut your energy bills by up to 10 percent year after year. Check out these DOE insulation tips and guidelines.
  2. Replace single pane windows – If your budget allows, consider upgrading to Energy Star™ rated windows. You’ll have fewer drafts, which will take some of the pressure off your heating equipment.
  3. Replace your old heating system – Most of today’s high-efficiency home comfort equipment performs significantly better than older equipment – especially if that equipment hasn’t been properly maintained. If you’re replacing a 10-year-old system, your heating bill might drop 25 percent or more – enough to offset the investment in a new unit in just a few years.
