Nobody wants to just throw away money, but if you aren't careful, you could basically be tossing money out the window, door, roof, or elsewhere throughout your home. You can save some of that money though, but you'll need to do some work and may even need to replace your heating or cooling systems. See below for tips on how to save money on your energy bills.
Replace Your A/C System
If your air conditioner is older than 15 years, it may not be as energy efficient as a new one. Upgrading your system to a new one may help save you some money on your monthly energy bills. If your system is older, it may begin to breakdown, which means purchasing new parts (some of which may be really expensive especially if they're hard to find) and hiring a repair technician to make those repairs. All of those costs can begin to add up, so upgrading your system can save you on those costs as well.
Just like your A/C system, your furnace should also be upgraded to a more energy efficient model if it's older than 15 years old.
Block Out The Sunlight
Sunlight on a hot summer day will heat up your house, so block the sunlight using your curtains or blinds will help keep your house cool. Keep your windows covered during the day when the sun is hottest and open them up in the evening or when the sun isn't pouring into the window.
In the winter, open up the blinds and curtains to allow the sun to warm your home.
Add More Insulation
Add more insulation to your home to prevent your cool or warm air from escaping out of your roof. You can install your own insulation, even rent a blow-in insulation machine to blow-in the insulation yourself.
Caulk Windows And Doors
Use caulk to seal windows and doors in your home, both inside and outside of your home. Be sure to use an exterior caulk outside your home so it will hold up to the weather. Air can escape around your windows and doors, and you may even feel a draft or notice your curtains moving when the wind blows hard. If this is the case, you may want to think about adding new seals to your windows and doors, or purchasing brand new windows/doors.
Be sure to also change your air filter in your HVAC system to keep air flowing properly and to prevent your systems from working overtime, which can cause a premature breakdown. Contact a professional HVAC technician for help if your system breaks down, and other helpful tips to save money on your energy bills.
