In today’s day and age, people everywhere are looking for ways to make more environmentally friendly choices. Whether you want to save money on your energy bill or lower your carbon footprint, we can help make your custom home energy efficient. Fortunately, Robin Ford Building wants to share energy-efficient tips you can apply to your home. This way, you can save a few dollars and help the environment.
Make Sure to Add Insulation
Heating bills can be costly in your wallet, primarily if you live in an area with frigid winters. So, make it easier on your heating system by adding insulation to your custom home to maintain the heat. Also, ensure your home has insulation in every room, including the basement, crawl space, and attic. As a result, insulating your attic is a great investment in your home’s efficiency in the long run.
Consider LED Lighting
LED lightbulbs are one of the effective ways to light your home sustainably because they consume less energy while lasting longer. In addition, an LED bulb will last 25 times longer while still utilizing 75% less energy than a regular bulb. Think of the dollar savings on your monthly electric bill if you added every bulb in your custom home with an LED one!
Install a Smart Thermostat
Gone are the days when you must manually adjust your thermostat whenever you’re hot or cold. Instead, there are programmable thermostats that you can change from your phone! They are also excellent tools for making your custom home more energy-efficient. Additionally, a programmable thermostat enables you to adjust your heating and air conditioning for when your home is empty.
Ceiling Fans are the Best!
Air circulation is essential to keeping your home warm or cool, and a ceiling fan will assist in circulating your heating and AC throughout the house more efficiently. It might seem counterintuitive, but an additional fan can help your custom home stay warmer on those freezing winter days.
