3 inexpensive ways to improve your home’s energy efficiency

When it comes to making energy-efficient upgrades to your home, you don't have to break the bank. In fact, some of the most effective ways to reduce the amount of power that your house uses on a regular basis will not cost you very much at all but could end up saving you hundreds of dollars in energy expenses each year. Not only will you be spending less money, but you will also be having a positive impact on the environment. You don't have to sacrifice your comfort or your bank account in order to live a more energy-efficient lifestyle.

Here are a few inexpensive energy home upgrades:

  • Seal leaks: One of the most important ways you can improve the energy efficiency of your home is by making sure that there are no air leaks around your doors and windows. If you find that there are, simply run down to a local hardware store and purchase new weather stripping. You will notice an immediate difference in your home's interior and your bills.
  • Tint the windows: Having your house outfitted with energy saving window film will reduce your energy consumption and payments dramatically. Keeping the UV rays from the sun out of your home will make the space both efficient and more comfortable.
  • Use a fan: Instead of relying on your air conditioner at all hours, you should open up your windows and turn your ceiling fans on in order to allow the air to circulate. This is especially important to do at night when exterior temperatures drop.
