There are many things around your home that drain energy, and wasted energy equals money out of your wallet.
Making a few minor changes to your everyday routine can save you a lot of money.
Heating and cooling are some of the biggest drains to your energy. Keeping your system in good repair can save you a lot of money. You should have a schedule in place for replacing the filters, since a dirty filter greatly reduces the efficiency of these systems.
In connection with that, proper insulation of your house also ensures that you lose as little heat or cool air as possible.
You can also reduce energy spent on lighting by replacing any incandescent light bulbs with either LED or CFL light bulbs. Even though these bulbs have a higher upfront cost, you will save money in the long run.
When cooking food, using a microwave oven will save you money over using a regular oven.
