10 Energy-Saving Tips That Will Help Cut Costs In Your Corpus Christi Home

April 11, 2013 | Blog

Regardless of the season, incorporating a few energy-saving tips into your daily routine is a smart way to keep your energy dollars from flying out the window. Here are some ways you can make minor adjustments to your lifestyle while saving a bundle on your energy bills throughout the year.

  1. Raise your thermostat temperature at night and when you’re away from home during the long Coastal Bend cooling season. If you have a programmable thermostat, this will only take a few minutes to set up so you don’t have to think about it every day.
  2. Clean or replace the air filters on your air conditioning unit and furnace.
  3. Use your ceiling fans to enhance both cooling and heating.
  4. Only wash full loads in your washing machine and always choose a cold rinse cycle. If you do decide to wash smaller loads, be sure to adjust the water level accordingly.
  5. Use a clothes line for drying whenever possible and avoid using the dryer.
  6. Conduct an inspection of your home’s exterior and use caulk, spray foam and weatherstripping to seal any air leaks around doors, windows, utility entries and exterior fittings.
  7. If you own a swimming pool, limit the pool pump’s operating time to no more than six hours per day.
  8. Always remember to turn off and unplug appliances when they’re not in use. These “energy vampires” may be costing you more than you think.
  9. Replace older light bulbs with energy efficient LED or compact fluorescent light bulbs.
  10. Lower the temperature on your water heater from 140 degrees to 120 degrees.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
