There are some really easy things you can do that can make a big difference. Conserving energy is one of them, and it can save you money. Here are 5 simple ways you can conserve energy in your home

1. Caulking Around Windows

Air is like water. It likes to take the path of least resistance. If there are gaps for the air to pass through around your windows, you’re definitely going to be feeling a draft. So try using some caulking around that window sill. Caulking fits itself into any tiny space that might not seamlessly seal otherwise. Make sure when you are using the application gun to use the type of caulking that is specific to what you are applying it to. You can fill gaps in less than a minute that will last for years!

2. Weather Stripping

You can actually reduce wasted energy and fuel costs by using some weather stripping to seal up your exterior doors. Start off by checking where you might have some gaps in your door seals. Try this: Turn off all the light in a room during the day and look at the door. Do you see any light coming from around and under the door? If you have a gap under the door, check to see if you have an adjustable threshold. If so, a few turns with a screwdriver will raise the threshold enough to create a tighter fit and seal the bottom of the door. And if you see light coming from around the door when you flip the lights off, weather stripping is inexpensive and does a great job.

3. Furnace Filter

Another thing you can do that is low cost to make your house more efficient is to check your furnace filter regularly and change it when it’s dirty. Dirt and debris are going to accumulate in your filter. When that happens, the air has trouble passing through. Then your furnace has to work increasingly harder just to keep your home warm. A clean furnace filter means less fuel to heat your home and a longer life for your HVAC unit.

4. Smart Thermostats

Installing a smart thermostat in your home can reduce your energy usage and save you money.  Whether you are at home or away, these devices can make small adjustments to ensure you are being the most efficient with your energy usage.  You can also receive a $50 rebate from Dominion Energy on qualified models. Visit thermwise.com for more details.
