Before you can start saving money on your energy bills, you need to know how your house is performing from the standpoint of energy efficiency. Branford, CT's top electrical contractor, NJF Electric Services, has 30 years of experience providing electrical services to homes and businesses, and they want to help you increase your home's energy efficiency. There are several ways to do this, starting with an energy efficiency audit by a professional to figure out which areas of your home require immediate attention.
Beyond an energy audit, you should consider replacing your exterior windows, as these are the leading cause of heat loss in the winter and cool air loss in the summer. With more energy-efficient windows, the air will stay in your house longer, thus increasing your home's energy efficiency. Additionally, fixing leaks and making sure that air ducts are properly insulated is an inexpensive way of making a home more efficient. In the average home, 20% of the air moving through its ductwork will be lost due to leaks and improper insulation.
Finally, having a residential electrician install a programmable thermostat in your home will save you up to 10% on your heating and cooling bills each year. The costs of a new temperature control system, the wiring needed to run it, and the hourly electrical service work will all pay for themselves in a matter of months. And when you work with NJF Electric Services, you can rest assured that not only will all of the electrical wiring be of the highest quality, but that the job will be completed as quickly and efficiently as possible, so you can get back to your regular schedule.
If you're considering installing an energy-efficient thermostat, are working on a remodeling project, or need emergency services from a qualified electrical contractor, call NJF Electric Services today at (203) 468-0356 or visit their website to learn more.
