Money Saving Ideas for Your Home

Here are some money saving ideas to keep money in your pocket:

Digital Thermometers 

A good thermostat can save you money on power, keep your home comfortable, even learn your habits and preferences. That said, there are tons of thermostats out there that are easy to install, customizable, and flexible. Installing these thermostats can be done yourself but if you need someone to install them call us and we can handle this for you. 

LED Lighting

An easy and simple switch is LED lighting, whether its LED light bulbs for your lamps and sconces, or having LED recessed lights installed. Under cabinet LED tape light installed in your kitchen can not only save you money but give your kitchen an upgraded look. 

Motion Sensors

Motion sensors (occupancy sensors) automatically turn lights on and off so you only get (and pay for!) light when you need it . Using motion sensors can save you $100 per year. Some motion sensors need to be manually turned on but turn off automatically. They’re great for bedrooms because they won’t turn on when you move in your sleep.

Some switches are installed in junction boxes; others are wireless. You can also buy light fixtures with built-in motion sensors. You’ll need special motion sensors for electronic ballasts that control CFLs. 

Water Heater Timer

If you only use your water heater at certain times of the day, you’re wasting electricity keeping the water hot 24/7. To solve this problem, install an electronic timer switch. Timers are available for 120 – and 240volt heaters. they can be programmed for daily or weekly schedules so you only heat the water when you need it. 

Update Appliances

Some outdated appliances can drain your wallet and not work as efficiently as new ones. If your appliances are over 10 years old, look into purchasing new appliance that you use more often than not. Over, dish washer, washer/dryer, refrigerator. The newer appliances have a energy rating that could save you a ton of money, as well as get you an rebate for energy savings.
