Energy Efficient Tips

Safety:

  • Having GFCI outlets in all of their proper locations prevents possible shock hazards. “All garage outlets, exterior outlets, outlets within 6 feet of a sink, and countertop accessible outlets should be GFCI protected.”helpful tips
  • Having keyless locking mechanisms on all doors and windows is important to prevent anyone from being locked inside during an emergency. “All deadbolt hardware should be keyless for proper egress.”
  • Double check that you have smoke detectors in all of their proper locations. “There should be a smoke detector in every bedroom and its connecting area.”

Energy Efficiency:

  • Having proper insulation in the attic and on exterior walls will help your energy bill. Also, “all pull down attic doors should be properly insulated to help with energy efficiency.”
  • Make sure when your exterior doors are closed there is no visible light coming through around the edges. If there is, “the weather stripping around the exterior door is in need of adjustment or repair to prevent negative airflow.”

·         Changing your HVAC air filters when dirty and having your systems serviced regularly will prolong the life of your cooling and heating systems. Also, “all A/C unit freon lines should be properly insulated to prevent sweating and possible freeze.”
