Summer Energy Saving Tips for Buyers and Sellers
in Somerset County, NJ
Summer has officially arrived and brought the heat with it! While we all want to stay cool and comfortable during the dog days of summer, no one wants to spend a fortune on their electrical bill. There are many ways to manage your energy consumption, including home energy monitors, and rebates and incentives available from the government and utility companies.
In addition, here are some steps you can take to trim down your summer energy use:
· Reduce energy loss by up to 10 percent by sealing window and door drafts with caulking and weather stripping. It also pays to turn off electronic devices like video game consoles, cable boxes, laptops and cell phone chargers when not in use.
· Be smarter about how and when you use your major appliances. Run the dishwasher and washing machine only when you have a full load, and consider hanging your clothes to dry rather than using the dryer. In addition, you can save more on your bills by washing your laundry in cold water whenever possible, setting your machine to the shortest wash time and skipping the extra rinse cycle.
· Program an electric thermostat to raise the temperature in your home while you are at work. This helps avoid using energy when you don’t need it. You can also keep your cooling costs down by closing your blinds and curtains during the day to block heat coming through your windows.
