An energy-efficient home not only lowers energy bills but helps the environment overall. Adopting a greener lifestyle has significant benefits and doesn’t take much effort. There are several small ways in which you can preserve the energy in your home and reduce your carbon footprint, but where do you start? We have the answers that you need! Keep reading to delve into a few simple ways that you can make your home more energy-efficient.
Seal Your Windows
Sealing the air leaks around your windows will take away the draft that you may be experiencing in your home. You should also consider weatherstripping around the frames and adding a bead of silicone caulk to your drywall. A sheet of shrink film added to your windows also stops drafts. Sealing and gaps and cracks in your home is a cost-effective way to lower energy costs. If you find that you need to replace your windows altogether, Phil Dibello Family Roofing is here to help. We offer a multitude of appealing, energy-efficient windows.
Invest in Roofing Ventilation
Insulation and ventilation go hand in hand. Even if you’ve adequately sealed your home from air leaks and it’s insulated correctly, ventilation is still necessary for air to flow throughout your home correctly. Count on Phil Dibello Family Roofing to ventilate your roof. We provide safe and cost-effective roof ventilation services.
Add Skylights to Your Home
If you want more sunlight in your home and solar heat, then skylights are a perfect add-on. They eliminate the need for using artificial lighting as much. Using less artificial light means that you save money. You can turn off the lights and let the sunshine into your home. More natural light also has positive effects on health.
Other Ways to Make Your Home More Energy-Efficient
- Invest in an Energy Audit
- Use less hot water
- Use LED light bulbs
- Turn off the water when you don’t need it
- Unplug chargers that aren’t in use
- Install showerheads with a flow rate of less than 2.5 gallons per minute (GPM)
- Lower your thermostat when you leave your home
