4 Energy-Saving Resolutions For The New Year

4 Energy-Saving Resolutions For The New Year | Heating Company Northern Kentucky | Rusk Heating & Cooling It's a new year. It's a new month. It's time to find new ways to save on energy bills. Instead of making a New Year's resolution this year, make a home energy efficiency resolution - your family and your wallet will thank you. Here's how you can get started:
  1. Change Thermostats: it's 2017, there's no reason to have a traditional thermostat on the wall. Not only does it look out-of-style, it's probably costing you a small fortune in energy bills. Programmable thermostats and smart home technology can save you upwards of 10% on heating and cooling costs this year alone.
  2. Heat Your Home Naturally: take advantage of the sun. Even though it might be cold outside, you can harness the sun's warm rays that enter your home to heat the room. Open up blinds and curtains on bright, sunny days.
  3. Look For The Energy Star: is your heating equipment more than 10 years old? If so, it might be time to replace it. Look for newer appliances with the Energy Star label - these products use anywhere from 10-15% less energy than older models.
  4. Cut Water Heating Costs: did you know that water heating accounts for nearly 15% of your utility bill? By making sure it's set no higher than 120°F, making sure your system is insulated and installing low-flow shower heads you'll be amazed at how much you can save this year.
Don't be left out in the cold - it's time make some changes this year! Start by giving the heating experts at Rusk Heating & Cooling a call today and you'll be well on your way to saving on utility bills in 2017!
