Five Products for Energy-Efficient Homes

July 27, 2021
5 Energy-Efficient Products for Energy-Efficient HomesHaving an energy-efficient home is important for so many reasons. You can dramatically reduce your energy bills by heating and cooling your home and lowering energy use. Plus, you can reduce your environmental footprint by being more conscious about what you’re using. The problem is, it’s not always easy to know how best to do it. Here are five easy energy-efficient products that can help you control the amount of energy you consume.Solar PanelsSolar panels are an alternative to traditional energy sources that is renewable and sustainable. Most energy-efficient homes run on solar energy for this reason. It’s also less expensive than other energy sources, making it a smart choice for budget-conscious homeowners.LED LightbulbsHere’s a smart, easy tip for homeowners: Switch your traditional lightbulbs with LED lights. These energy-efficient lights don’t generate heat, which means no energy is wasted when turned on. These lights also last much longer than traditional lightbulbs, which will cost you less in the long run and decrease your impact on the environment.Smart Power StripsYou’re probably aware that devices left plugged-in use energy even when they’re off. Switching to Smart power strips allows you to prevent this. These power strips automatically shut down power to devices when they’re charged or aren’t being used. You’ll waste less energy and lower your bills with this option.Smart ThermostatTraditional thermostats need to be constantly adjusted, or they’ll continue to blast heat or AC to keep the house at the set temperature, even if you’re not at home. A programmable, smart thermostat monitors that for you – no need to sacrifice comfort. You can set it to adjust the temperature at different times throughout the day (when you’re away at work or when you’re sleeping, for example) so you’re not wasting heat or energy.Energy-Efficient WindowsDouble-pane windows can decrease your heating and cooling costs, thereby lowering your energy consumption. While it will be expensive to replace all your single-pane windows, the cost savings will make up for it in the long run. You can double down on the energy efficiency by investing in heavy shades or blinds that keep your house cool in the summer.Many of these options do require an up-front expense, which can seem counter-intuitive to the goal of reducing your energy bills. But each of these products will reduce your costs considerably over time. Plus, you can make less of an impact on the environment and rely on sustainable options for energy. With a bit of effort and money up front, you can set your home up to be greener and more energy-efficient in no time.
