Investments That Save Money

An investment that saves you money? There are many ways to save energy here and there throughout your home. Here are two of the biggest ways you can save energy and money this summer! It may take an investment upfront, but there will be savings and efficiency in the end!

Upgrade Appliances: Save 12+%
Appliances use 20 percent of the energy in the average US home. When it’s time to buy new appliances, look for the most efficient Energy Star model you can find. The biggest energy hogs in a home are usually the refrigerator (particularly if it was built before 1993) and clothes dryer. Investing in upgraded appliances will not only upgrade the look and feel of your home, but you will get a return on your investments.

Plug Air Leaks : Save 10+%
Seal air leaks around doors and windows with caulk and weatherstripping. Also, consider putting up insulating curtains, installing upgraded windows, or plastic window films to further cut down on cool loss in summer.
