Thank you for your patience.
Looking to use less energy and live more sustainably? Maybe your energy lifestyle needs a reset. From simple behavioral changes to home improvement upgrades, these measures will help you on your journey to a more energy-efficient way of life.
Minor changes to your daily routine can make a big difference on your monthly energy bills.
You don't have to be handy to make your home more energy-efficient; it can be as simple as changing a lightbulb or a furnace filter. Switch out conventional bulbs for LEDs, which use up to 75% less energy and last longer. Dirty air filters make your HVAC system work harder. Change the filter regularly according to the manufacturer's instructions.
If you're willing to put in a little more time and effort, plenty of simple, low-cost projects can make your home more efficient and comfortable. See DIY Energy-Savings Projects from the U.S. Department of Energy for more information.
Appliances, water heating and HVAC make up most of the energy use in your home. If you have appliances or equipment that are older or in need of repair, upgrade to an ENERGY STAR®-certified unit. ENERGY STAR products are independently tested to use less energy than standard models while still providing the performance you expect.
Smart home technology makes saving energy easier and more convenient. It doesn't necessarily require a big investment. Smart bulbs and smart outlets are affordable upgrades. With smart bulbs, you can turn off, dim or change color tones using your smartphone or voice assistant. Smart outlets automatically cut power to plugged-in devices when not in use.
Advanced smart thermostats require a slightly higher investment, but they can more than pay for themselves by automatically adjusting home temperatures to save energy according to your schedule. Smart appliances typically cost more than standard models, but they make it easy to save energy, time and effort on daily routines, such as cooking and laundry.
