Our team will also spend time checking your appliances to see if they've been having an excessive impact on your electric bill. Outdated appliances often use two to three times as much energy as the newer models. Our team will also review alternative energy options, such as solar panels, for even more monthly savings.

5 Energy Efficiency Tips

Reducing your home’s energy waste can not only save you money, but also the environment. While the best way to eliminate energy waste in your home is to consult with energy efficiency experts — like our team here at A Tamam Construction — there are many simple, everyday steps you can take to lower your energy bill without having to sacrifice your lifestyle. Here are some of our top five tips for effective energy efficiency:

  • Replace your light bulbs: Traditional incandescent light bulbs use an excessive amount of electricity and must be replaced often. Energy efficient alternatives, such as halogen incandescent bulbs, compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) and light-emitting diode bulbs (LEDs) use anywhere from 25% to 80% less energy and last three to 25 times longer than traditional incandescent bulbs. Although energy-efficient light bulbs may seem expensive, they will save your money in the long run due their infrequent need for replacement.

  • Install a programmable or smart thermostat: Today, technology has allowed us to control our homes more than ever before. With a smart thermostat, you can adjust your home’s temperature at the click of a button, even if you’re somewhere else. Programmable or smart thermostats can be set to automatically reduce or turn off heating and cool during times when you sleep or are away from your home. 

  • Install a programmable or smart thermostat: Purchasing a programmable or smart thermostat saves you an average of $180 in energy bills every year. If you’re interested in installing a smart thermostat in your home, get in touch with A Tamam today to schedule a free consultation. We’re happy to discuss with you the best thermostat brands available, and help you with all of your installation and troubleshooting needs. 

  • Purchase energy-efficient appliances: Appliances are responsible for roughly 13% of total household energy use in American homes. When buying new appliances, pay attention to the initial purchase price and the annual operating cost. Although energy efficiency appliances — including dryers, washing machines, refrigerators, dishwashers, and more — tend to have higher purchase prices, their operating costs are 9% to 25% lower than conventional models. For advice on purchasing and installing energy-efficient appliances in your home, reach out to our team today. 

  • Weatherize your home: Weatherizing involves sealing air leaks around your home in order to reduce heating and cooling expenses. The most common sources of air leaks are windows, doors, and vents, so it is essential to ensure that these contain no cracks or openings. For an easy fix, you may want to try applying caulk between your wall and window frame or weather stripping around moving objects, such as operable windows and doors. To reap the full amount of savings from weatherization, however, you should hire a professional to fully insulate your home. Get in touch with us now to learn more.

  • Install energy-efficient windows: If your house has single-pane windows, it might be time to replace them with energy-efficient alternatives. On average, windows account for 10% to 25% of your home heating bill. Double-pane windows and gas-filled windows with “low-e” coatings can greatly reduce your heating expenses, saving you $25 to $95 each year on your utility bills.
