11 Cost-Saving Tips That Will Help Lower Your Energy Bill

Every little bit helps.

Posted on


Inspect all of the seals surrounding your windows. If you find any drafty areas, use a silicone-based caulk to close up any openings. This quick fix will help save you money on your energy bill by keeping warm air in during winter and cool air in during summer.


A large contributor to heat loss during winter is your windows. Even with thoroughly caulked windows, heat still travels through the window itself. To reduce this heat loss, look to install window treatments with an insulation layer built into them.


Improve your energy efficiency by wrapping your water heater with an insulation blanket. This easy installation will reduce standby heat loss and pay for itself shortly thereafter.


Have a thermostat that adapts to you. Don't heat or cool your home while you're away. Have the ability to change the temperature from your phone and save money at the same time.
