April 24, 2014 1:54am CST
Buying a home can be one of the most important decisions anyone can make in a lifetime. It can be overwhelming. So why would energy efficiency be necessary for a homeowner? There are several reasons why energy efficiency is necessary for a homeowner. Once the house is bought there are ongoing expenses throughout the year. There is maintenance, utilities, home security, and insurance. So in other words, cost is one of the main reasons. Homeowners that decide to make their home energy efficient may be eligible for grants and tax credits. They can also save resources such as natural gas, and help the environment. There are several things a homeowner can do to make it more energy efficient. Changing the light bulbs in the home can cut cost tremendously. Compact fluorescent bulbs can save $50 over the life of the bulb. These bulbs last 10 times longer, and only cost approximately $3. Programmable thermostats for the air conditioner and heater can also reduce costs. Having the air conditioner and heater going while at home and at work can be costly. These thermostats help control temperatures when people are at work, at night, and on vacation. Making sure there is proper insulation in the attic is very important. Increasing the insulation to R30 can help. Not having proper insulation can allow the heat and cold to come into the home. Many homeowners are updating their home to spray foam insulation in Kansas because it’s a much better insulator and reducer of unwanted air. Cold air and heat can also enter the home through doors and windows. Make sure they are all properly sealed. The windows can be done with caulk and the doors with draft seals that go under the door. Check the filter regularly. This is very important. These filters can fill up quickly with dust and dirt, which stops the airflow. Use ceiling fans. Ceiling fans help circulate the air. When the air is circulating it helps keep the room at a constant temperature, which keeps the air conditioner and heater from having to be on as much. Take all of these tips and tricks and put them to use. Reduce your energy consumption for the world and for your wallet.
