Take a moment to consider how much you spend on energy each year. You may be surprised to find that your HVAC system accounts for about half of all your energy usage. Knowing this, it’s only natural that you want to find ways to save money. You may think that the only way to do this is by sacrificing your comfort, but this is not the case. You should be able to use each of the appliances in your home with freedom, and without the need to worry about spending your entire budget on utilities.
But how do you find a balance? Is there a way to make sure that your home comfort stays intact while still saving energy? The short answer is, yes! You may have to change your energy habits a bit, and you’ll need to seal air leaks throughout your home to ensure that your HVAC systems work as efficiently as possible. But another important step you can take is to upgrade your home with energy-efficient appliances, as outlined on the Energy Upgrade California® page.
