Cutting down your home’s monthly energy bill in Columbia, Maryland is easier than you think, and you don’t need to invest in any hi-tech gadgets or gizmos to help you do it.

We’ve compiled a list of handy tips and hints that you can use to make major savings on your energy bills every month.

Use Your Thermostat Wisely

Tinkering with your thermostat can produce considerable savings over time. When you’re asleep, knock the thermostat down by 10 to 15 degrees. Making this adjustment for 8 hours every night can save you between 5% and 15% on your monthly energy bill. You also need to be on the lookout for other sources of heat energy; instead of wasting the energy produced when cooking, turn your thermostat down and take the pressure off your heating system.

Consider an Upgrade

Heating and air conditioning systems become less efficient over time. If you suspect that this has happened to your system, an upgrade or service could rectify this. The money you will save over time will more than cover the initial costs.

Pre-Empt the Problem

It is better to be proactive where heating systems are concerned. Don’t wait until your system starts struggling; arrange a check-up to keep ahead of any problems that may affect its efficiency.

Keep an Eye on the Curtains

Closing your curtains at night can help to better insulate your home and keep your bills down. Also, if you heat your home with radiators, don’t leave curtains draped over them, as this directs valuable heat energy out of the room via the windows.

Keep the Heat In

Invest in cavity wall insulation to keep the heat inside your home and make the heating process more efficient. Installing this kind of insulation could reduce your monthly energy consumption by up to 15%.
