Three ways to reduce your home energy bill:

  1. Add geothermal and/or solar (with battery) systems to reduce your utility usage.
  2. Insulate your home to reduce the energy needed to keep it warm or cool. This can be done with insulation, new doors and windows, increasing airflow efficiency, and better controlling humidity within the home.
  3. Upgrade your equipment and appliances to more energy-efficient models.

Understanding where your home utilizes the most energy can help you identify areas that can be more energy efficient. On average, residential single structure home expenditures on energy break down the following ways:

  • 43% Heating and Cooling – the quality of your home’s insulation, doors and window insulating factors, ductwork insulation, smart thermostat settings, humidity systems, air circulation, and ratings of your heating and air conditioning have a huge impact on your energy usage – especially during the warmest and coldest months.
  • 12% Water Heating – the energy efficiency of your water heater and flow rate of hot water play a large role. New tankless water heaters are highly efficient because they heat water on-demand rather than 24 hours a day.
  • 11% Lighting – newer LED-based lighting and timers can significantly reduce your lighting energy usage.
  • 9% Appliances – replacing older, inefficient appliances (like clothes dryers) with newer appliances can improve your energy usage.
  • 9% Electronics – homes are acquiring more and more electronics nowadays, and thankfully many devices like Televisions, are becoming far more energy efficient.
  • 8% Refrigeration – replacing older, inefficient refrigerators and freezers with newer better rated versions can improve your energy usage.
  • 8% Miscellaneous – all of your other usage.
