Technologies for Home Energy Efficiency

TECHNOLOGIES FOR HOME ENERGY EFFICIENCY

The National Association of Home Builders suggest the following to shave $200 to $400 off energy bills:

AUTOMATED HVAC SYSTEMS.  According to Energy Star, programmable thermostats can save consumers about $180 per year in energy costs.

WATER HEATERS.  Tankless gas water heaters turn on when residents star using hot water and turn off when there’re done.  This can reduce water heating cots up to 35% annually.  Adding a timer to an existing water heater is also a good idea, as it can be programmed to turn off when the home owner is away.

LIGHTING.  Automatic dimmers will adjust lighting on the time of day, which is extremely beneficial for exterior lighting.

BLINDS AND DRAPES.  Automated blinds are an eco-savvy development in window treatments.  Program shades to close during the hottest part of the day in summer and let sun in during winter.

Top Allergy Fighting Ideas from Mayo Clinic

AIR FILTRATION.  Choose an air filter that has small-particle or HEPA filter.  Clean or replace the filters in the central heating and cooling systems and air conditioning units.  Keep the humidity low and temperature around 70 degrees to help fight mold and dust mites.

FLOORING.  Remove carpeting and use hardwood, ceramic or linoleum flooring.  Wash area rugs and shampoo carpets.

PLANTS.  Spread aquarium gravel over the dirt in potted plants to help contain mold.

FOOD WASTE.  Place garbage in can with an insect proof lid and empty trash daily.

KITCHEN & BATH.  Scrub with bleach to clean mold form the fixtures, tub and shower.  Clean or replace moldy shower curtains and bath mats.
