It’s no secret that running an air conditioner in Crawfordville, FL, can be a drain on the checkbook. This is why it pays to know how to make your home more energy-efficient. These tips will have you saving money on your air conditioning or heating in no time at all.
Program the Thermostat
One easy way to save money by making your home energy-efficient is to buy a programmable thermostat. Purchasing these types of thermostats for a very modest price will save you money very quickly. You simply program the thermostat to keep the house cool when you are home or to automatically modify the air conditioner when you are not home.
Make Sure It’s Energy Star-Approved
The government offers tax incentives to homeowners who purchase new appliances rated and approved by Energy Star. You could qualify for federal tax credits and rebates on the actual appliances as well as other programs. Try the Energy Star Home Advisor app to create a personal profile and find out everything for which you may qualify.
Energy Audit and Financing
One of the most common ways to spot energy problems in the home is to have your utility company perform an energy audit. After the audit, ask the us about special financing programs to help you. We will do our best to help you upgrade your appliances to ensure efficiency.
For households considered low-income, there are ways of getting help without out-of-pocket expenses. For instance, there is a program known as the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, or LIHEAP, for which you may qualify. Contact them for help in searching for government grants.
