Ways to Cut Energy Costs

You just spent hundreds of dollars on Holiday gifts. Now you need to save up for other occasions and home improvement projects, but how? By saving money on your utility bill! Here are some tips on ways to cut your home energy costs.

Install Awnings– An awning not only adds beauty to your home’s exterior, but it can also reduce the indoor temperature. It can help cut down cooling costs because it will prevent the heat from entering and the cooling energy from leaving, thus helping your air conditioning system work a little better.

Install Interior Shades– Having an interior shade in your home can greatly reduce your home energy costs. Interior shades help reduce the interior temperature by up to 20 degrees Fahrenheit. They also stop up to 99% of ultraviolet (UV) rays from entering your home.

Install Exterior Retractable Solar Screens–  Retractable solar screens will block up to 97 percent of the sun’s heat from entering your home. This solar shading solution is even more effective than interior mounted shades, reducing cooling costs by as much as 40 percent. They also help reduce fading of your indoor furnishings.

Purchase a Solar Beam Infrared Heater– This affordable and powerful outdoor heater can help you save 80% in operations cost in comparison to propane heaters.
