3 Ways to Save Energy this New Year

What is your New Year’s resolution this year?  Join a gym?  Cut out sweets? Work on spending more time with family?  What about working to live a more energy efficient lifestyle?  By taking a few simple steps, you can resolve to use less energy this year and in turn save money, which can help you pay for that new gym membership.  Here are a few easy ways to begin saving energy this new year:

Turning off the lights

This might seem really easy, but it can be surprising how often we forget to turn off lights when we leave a room.  Making sure to only have lights on when you need them can cut back your energy usage.  Consider installing sensor lights to help with this and use all of those candles to help shed some light without using electricity.

Keep the Heat Down

You can walk around the house all bundled up to save money, or you can strategically turn the heat down at various points in the day to save money.  For example, when everyone is at work or school or at night when everyone is cozy in bed.  Investing in a programmable thermostat is a really simple way to do this as the thermostat can be programmed to automatically turn the heat up or down at specific times.

Adjust the Hot Water Heater

Usually hot water heaters are set to a higher temperature than they need to be.  A hot water heater is often set at 140 degrees, but it can be turned down 120 degrees and you should still have a warm relaxing shower.  Investing in a tankless water heater that only heats water when necessary is another great way to save energy this year.
