Top Tips for Lowering Your Energy Bills

Everyone knows how important it is to save money, but we also understand how hard it can be to find savings when it comes to the energy in your home.

But what if you didn’t have to spend less or buy new products? All you need to do is spend more effectively and perform routine inspections of your appliances and other home systems.

Here are some of our top tips for lowering your energy bills:

  • Keep your thermostat turned down when you’re not home
  • Replace and clean air filters regularly
  • Make sure that your home is insulated well
  • Run fuller, less frequent laundry loads

If you want to lower your energy bills without having to buy new, expensive products, keep reading to learn how!

Keep Your Thermostat Turned Down When You’re Not Home

Think about this:  When you leave for school, work, or even a vacation, your empty home is being heated or cooled. If you want to trim your energy bills, turning your thermostat lower by about 10 to 15 degrees can save you up to 10% in heating and cooling costs on average.

For energy-efficient, affordable thermostats, Cascade Mechanical has what you need!

Run Fuller, Less Frequent Laundry Loads

Washing small loads of laundry is an inefficient way to use your washing machine, and it’s costing you money. If you want to save on your energy bills, run fuller, less frequent laundry loads.

Replace and Clean Filters Regularly

When your HVAC system is running efficiently, you spend less — it’s that simple. Cleaning and replacing your air filter regularly — about every 30 days — is one way to slim your energy bills. When your air filters are clean, your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard to cool your home.

Cascade Mechanical knows how important clean filters are, so we even provide services to keep your HVAC filter clean.

Make Sure Your Home is Properly Insulated

When your home is insulated, less warm air escapes during the winter, and less cool air will escape during the summer. By ensuring that your home is properly insulated, you can save up to 20% on your energy bills.

If you are unsure whether your home is insulated correctly or you are wondering if you can save more with better insulation, Cascade Mechanical is here to help.
