Top Energy Saving Secrets for New Homeowners

Top Energy Saving Secrets for New Homeowners | Energy Saving Tips | Rusk Heating & Cooling So you just purchased your first home, congratulations! That's a big and exciting step in anyone's life, but it can come with lots of challenges and unexpected costs. However, if you're prepared there's no need to worry and we're going to help you get started on the right foot. See below for a few top energy saving secrets to take advantage of in your new home:
  1. Keep your heating and cooling system pristine! What do we mean by this? We mean that it's final to keep it clean, change the filters often and schedule regular maintenance.
  2. Invest in a programmable or smart thermostat. Why? Even though it may cost a bit upfront, these types of thermostats allow you to set temperatures for the week so you don't have to worry about adjusting them manually. The result? Huge savings on energy bills.
  3. Check for air leaks around windows and doors and have them fixed right away. A few quick solutions include installing a door sweep and caulking cracks and gaps.
  4. If your home has a fireplace, be sure to close the damper when you're not using it. An open flue provides a great escape passageway for warm air during the winter and cool air during the summer.
  5. Use your ceiling fan all year long! Why? Spinning the blades in reverse during the winter can help bring warm air down from the ceiling to the living spaces and they can help circulate cool air during the warmer months.
