The price of everything is going up, including energy. While the cost of heating your home may be steadily rising, you are in a position to control how much energy you use, thereby reducing the pain in your wallet. Below are some tips to help reduce your costs while improving the comfort level in your home, ranging from simple behavioral changes to more extensive home improvements.

Get an energy audit

It’s a good idea to get a home energy audit if you are not sure how energy efficient your home is. The information from the audit will be very useful to gauge what you need to do to improve the energy efficiency of your home, and eventually reduce your energy bill.

Install a programmable thermostat

These are widely available and are fairly easy to install. A programmable thermostat allows you to program the temperature to go up when you are at home and turn down the temperature when you are not or when you are sleeping. The thermostat can be easily controlled from your smartphone and is relatively inexpensive.

Remove drafts

A home energy audit will pinpoint with good accuracy where you are leaking heat. Addressing the air leaks in your home can help you save money and increase the comfort level in your home.  Test for air loss by standing in front of doors and windows and feeling for any cold drafts. You can use your hand or a candle.

Improve the insulation

The most vulnerable area for heat loss if not insulated properly is the roof/attic. If you own an older home, adding to the existing insulation will not only increase the comfort level of your home by keeping the heat in but will also reduce your energy bill.

Adjusting your habits

Sometimes all it takes is switching lights off, taking shorter showers, hanging clothes to dry instead of using the dryer, drawing curtains at night to insulate rooms, or reducing the thermostat by a degree or so to make a difference to your end of the month bill. While some of these ideas may not seem like a lot, a few simple changes can really make a difference and help to reduce your energy costs.
