Small Tactics That Can Save You A Lot Of Energy.

There is no reason not to want to save energy around the home when you think about it. After all, less energy usage means less of a strain on the environment and your wallet! The good news is that you don’t have to move to a custom-built, sustainable home to lower your energy usage. There are many small actions you can take that will all add up to a massive energy saving. Read on to find out what they are. 

Get smart with your TV

Not many people realize that most TVs’ brightness settings come up to the max when you first get them from the supplier. Of course, this means you can waste a great deal of energy without even realizing it. 

To that end, be sure that you access your TV’s menu and turn the brightness setting to a more appropriate level. Additionally, if your TV has a clever piece of tech known as an ambient light sensor – turn it on! This is because it can adjust the brightness of the screen according to how light or dark the room is, so you will always achieve the perfect level, and save energy at the same time! 

Replace less energy-efficient windows 

The next way you can save energy around the home is by switching out old, energy-inefficient windows for ones that are designed to reduce your energy consumption. 

The good news is that there are plenty of windows, including the ones on offer from renewal by Anderson on the market designed to do this. This is because they use SmartSun™ Low-E4® glass which helps keep the temperature stable inside your home, something that means you need to use less energy in heating or cooling it. 

Ditch your printer 

Home printers are notoriously unreliable, so many of us would jump at the chance to get rid! Of course, they use loads of energy and create plenty of paper waste as well, which is also bad for the environment. 

With that in mind, opt for the digital QR versions of aeroplane tickets, and information booklets, and you can save plenty of energy. 

Stop opening the oven door to check on your food 

While it is tempting to crack the oven door to take a peek at how your cake is baking, doing so wastes a great deal of energy. This is because as heat escapes the inner temperature of the oven drops, and additional power is required to raise it again. 

That is why it’s best to opt for an oven with a glass door that allows you to check the progress of your meal, without needing to open it. You can even get some suggestions on how to keep your oven door shiny and clean so you can clearly see what is going in inside, in the video below.

Whether you choose to follow one, or all of the suggestions above, you can feel safe in the knowledge that you will be making your home more energy-efficient, and saving money on bills at the same time!
