Top 9 ways to make your home more energy efficient

  1. LED lighting

swap out incandescent bulbs for LED bulbs. LEDs are far more energy-efficient and have a longer lifespan, reducing both your energy consumption and replacement costs.

  1. Smart thermostats

Installing a smart thermostat allows for more precise control of your home’s heating and cooling, learning your schedule and adjusting temperatures accordingly for optimal energy use.

  1. Seal and insulate

Ensure your home is well-sealed and insulated to prevent heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer. Areas to focus on include windows, doors, and attics. A licensed residential electrician can also assess and upgrade any electrical components involved in your heating and cooling systems to ensure they’re energy-efficient.

  1. Energy-efficient appliances

When it’s time to replace appliances, choose those with the Energy Star label, indicating they meet energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

  1. Solar panels

Consider installing solar panels to reduce reliance on the grid and generate your own clean energy. A licensed residential electrician with experience in solar installations can ensure it’s done safely and efficiently.

  1. Use power strips

Phantom loads or the energy used by electronics when they are turned off but still plugged in can add up. Connect devices to power strips and turn them off to stop power from being wasted.

  1. Regular maintenance

Keep your HVAC system and major appliances in top working order with regular maintenance. An efficiently running system uses less energy. Ensure that any maintenance involving electrical components or installations is performed by a licensed residential electrician.

  1. Upgrade your electrical panel

If your home is older, your electrical panel may not be equipped to handle modern energy-efficient appliances and systems. Upgrading your panel can improve your home’s energy efficiency and safety.

  1. Home energy/battery storage

With the increased demand on the electrical grid, more homeowners are moving towards storing their own power. We are seeing new products and ideas for home energy storage on a regular basis. As your licensed residential electrician, we can discuss your needs, options, and solutions for your unique situation.

The role of a licensed residential electrician in promoting sustainability

Navigating the path to a more energy-efficient home often requires professional insight. A licensed residential electrician like King Electric, LLC can provide a comprehensive energy audit, pinpointing areas where improvements can make the most impact. This expertise is invaluable in tailoring a plan that suits your home’s specific needs while maximizing energy savings.

The installation of energy-efficient systems, whether it’s solar panels, smart thermostats, or advanced LED lighting, needs to be executed with precision and knowledge.

A few more tips on how to save money on your electric bill

During peak hours, our electric company providers charge a premium for electric usage. Being mindful of these hours is a great time to cycle electric usage off. Here are a few more quick tips on things to consider:

  • Adjust your thermostat- Setting your thermostat a few degrees lower in winter and higher in summer can lead to significant savings. Consider a programmable thermostat to automate these adjustments.
  • Seal leaks- Check for drafts around windows and doors. Sealing leaks with weather stripping or caulk can improve your home’s insulation and reduce energy costs.
  • Reduce water heating expenses- Lowering your water heater’s temperature to 120°F can reduce your water heating costs. Also, consider insulating your water heater and hot water pipes.
  • Limit space heater use: Space heaters are big energy consumers. Use them sparingly and only in rooms you’re occupying.
  • Dry clothes naturally: Whenever possible, air-dry your clothes instead of using the dryer. When you do use the dryer, make sure to clean the lint filter to improve air circulation.
  • Improve your home’s insulation: Proper insulation in your attic, walls, and floors can keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, reducing the need for heating and cooling.
  • Use fans wisely: Ceiling fans can make a room feel cooler during the summer by creating a draft. Remember to turn them off when you leave the room.

“King Electric is the best. Called King Electric late on a Saturday afternoon for help with a non-working ceiling fan after completing a DIY ceiling fan project. King walked me through a step by step troubleshooting process over the phone that was able to diagnose the problem as a bad wall fan control switch. Very cool!!!” -Don
