3 Electrician-Approved Tips for Reducing Energy Costs, Newport-Fort Thomas, Kentucky

If your utility bills are too high, you can take action to address them. There are some simple steps aimed at reducing your energy usage that will promote a greener household and leave you with more money in your pocket. With more than 50 years of experience, the electricians at Arc Electric & Air Conditioning & Heating in Newport, KY, can assist you with ways to cut back on costs. Their expert staff lists some of these methods below.  

Electricians Explain How to Lower Energy Bills

1. Seal Your Home

electricianCracks around doors and windows let a significant amount of conditioned or heated air escape from your rooms. These compromised areas can cost you $100 or more annually on heating. Use caulk or weather stripping to alleviate the issue. 

2. Get a Programmable Thermostat

A lot of wasted energy is due to homeowners who have their HVAC systems going for an empty house or keep their units on higher settings than are necessary. A programmable thermostat allows you to use your air conditioning or heating when you need it, but will adjust itself based on your specified settings. A smart model will memorize your habits and program the system on your behalf.

3. Schedule for Maintenance 

Keeping up with your maintenance regimen can make all the difference when it comes to your energy usage. Bring in a professional heating contractor to service your systems before you turn them on for the season, and make sure air filters are changed out as often as necessary. This will ensure your systems work efficiently, saving you money and  lowering your chances of experiencing an inconvenient breakdown. 

When you hire someone to work on your home’s systems, you need a professional who knows what they are doing. Contact Arc Electric & Air Conditioning & Heating at (859) 441-7161 to schedule an appointment with an experienced electrician or HVAC contractor. They can help you determine ways to save on energy costs, and even offer 24-hour services to assist you even in emergency situations.
