Basic Home Improvements that save you money! Part 2

Energy

Canadians use an average of 105 gigajoules of energy per household.3 While you may have already switched to compact fluorescent light bulbs to save money, these tips will add to the savings by regulating your home’s temperature.

Rethink your insulation.

Good insulation not only helps regulate the temperature of your home, it can also reduce your heating and cooling costs by as much as 20%.

 

Manage the temperature automatically.

Wouldn’t you love to come home to the perfect temperature? A programmable thermostat helps you save energy and money by scheduling temperature settings for when you’re likely to need heat or air conditioning the most, such as when you wake up and when you arrive home from work.

 

Seal up drafts.

Have you ever wondered why your home won’t stay warm in the winter or cool in the summer? Check your windows. Drafty windows are not only a nuisance, they can also cause 30-40% of heating and cooling losses. Apply weather stripping to your windows to patch up leaks and save more money.
