The average American family spends about $2000 per year on their home energy bills. Living in this area, we are all too familiar with figures such as this; but we don’t have to be. With the extreme heat looming,
it's a perfect time for some money saving preparations!
The U.S Department of Energy estimates a savings of 5 to 10 percent annually just by replacing worn-out weather stripping. Additionally, replacing old windows and doors can put some extra money in your pocket. In fact, HouseLogic says you may notice savings of up to 15%.
Though savings can vary by climate and the energy efficiency of the existing products being replaced, you will surely notice a sizeable reduction in your energy bill! Living in a hot arid climate can be difficult enough, and nobody wants to sacrifice the comfort of the beloved A/C. But paying an arm and a leg for the energy to power it can be brutal.
So do yourself a favor before this years’ summer heat, and take some small steps that will save you BIG in the long run!
