Reviziting Of Home’s Energy

You can save energy and know how to save it with quick tips and what you need to do next is that you need to audit your home’s energy. So this is what you need to do first.

- Check the insulation levels in your attic, exterior and basement walls, ceilings, floors, and crawl spaces.

- Remember to check for holes or cracks around your walls, ceilings, windows, doors, light and plumbing fixtures, switches, and electrical outlets that can leak air into or out of your home.

- Remember to check for open fireplace dampers.

- Make sure your appliances and heating and cooling systems are properly maintained. Check your owner’s manuals for the recommended maintenance.

- You must study your family’s lighting needs and use patterns, paying special attention to high-use areas such as the living room, kitchen, and outside lighting. Look for ways to use lighting controls;like occupancy sensors, dimmers, or timers;to reduce lighting energy use, and replace standard (incandescent) light bulbs and fixtures with compact or standard fluorescent lamps.

The next step of what you need to do is you need to formulate your plan once home’s energy audit is done by asking several questions such as these:

- How much money do you spend on energy?

- Which parts in your house causes energy losses?

- How long will it take for an investment in energy efficiency to pay for itself in energy cost savings?

- Do the energy-saving measures provide additional benefits that are important to you (for example, increased comfort from installing double-paned, efficient windows)?

- Do you need to hire a contractor to do the repairing job?

- What is your budget and how much time do you have to spend on maintenance and repair?

We hope that this article help and there’s no such thing as global warming stated several scientists, but yes, energy really is in crisis.
