Exorcise All Energy Vampires
Believe it or not, but your home may be loaded with energy vampires. They usually come out when you leave your appliances plugged in even when they’re turned off or not in use.
Here are some tricks to stop them from bleeding you dry:
- Use smart power strips to turn them on and off automatically.
- Unplug your electronics when they’re not in use.
- Upgrade to Energy-Star certified appliances.
Brush the Cobwebs Off Your Ceiling Fans
Who says your ceiling fans are only good for the summer? Well, you can also use them these cooler months. The trick is letting your fans run in reverse (clockwise rotation), to allow a gentle updraft and keeping you comfortably warm. This can lower your heating bill as much as 20%.
Use Solar Walkway Lights
Another fun yet safe way to celebrate Halloween is by using solar walkway lights. With this, the kids stay safe as they tread to your front door at night. Not only that, you’re also reducing carbon footprint in your home since they don’t need electricity to function. They charge up during the day, so you can expect a much lower energy bills. Also, they are cost-effective, easy to install, and require little maintenance.
Close Your Chimney Flue When Not in Use
Spooky bats and other creepy creatures may invade your home through an open chimney. To prevent them from coming in your space, be sure your flue is closed when you’re not using it. This also saves a lot of energy. Plus, your system works so much better without leaks.
Fortify Your Defenses with Insulation
Sure you can’t wait for the most terrifying night of the year—Halloween! But make sure your home defense won’t let you down this cold season. Many homeowners tend to overlook this essential factor and get tangled in unpleasant situations. So, as early as now, let the experts check your space and add or replace your insulation.
Don’t Waste Your Heat on Ghosts
Use your thermostat properly to ensure that you are not wasting energy on ghosts. Unnecessarily heating your home is a sure hit to your utility bills. There is no need to overly warm your space. Just turn down the heat by 1 or 2 degrees and consider putting extra layers to beat the cold.
Now you’re ready to stop your energy bill from turning into monsters! Go, dress as a ghost, and scare your neighborhood!
