Would you be surprised to learn that heating and cooling your house accounts for almost 50% of your energy consumption?
The annual average energy bill for a single family
home is $2,200.
Home Energy Consumption
Clearly, since your furnace and air conditioner make up the greatest percentage of your energy consumption, investigating energy-saving technologies is a logical first step!
One affordable option is to replace your heating and cooling system’s PSC motor with an Evergreen motor. Its energy-saving technology will instantly upgrade the efficiency of your central heating and cooling system, using 30-50% less electricity than a PSC motor and saving you approximately $125 each year
on your electric bill.
Other ways to conserve electricity and make your home energy efficient:
- Turn off lights when you leave a room.
- Replace standard light bulbs with energy efficient compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs.
- Clean the coils on the back of your refrigerator twice a year – this will make your refrigerator work more efficiently, extend its life, and can save you up to 6% on your energy bills.
- Schedule regular cleaning of your home’s vents and ducts – this prevents dust and grime from hampering furnace performance.
- Wash and dry full loads of clothes rather than doing partial loads.
- Turn off appliances like TVs, computers and radios when no one is around.
- Close windows and doors when your heater or air conditioner is running.
- Schedule regular maintenance on your heating and cooling system.
