Energy Saving Tips

Winterize your home now to reduce energy costs later!

With the onset of winter comes cooler temperatures, shorter days and sometimes stronger winds.  While this all may be good fun for meteorologists, it can mean stress-inducing utility bills for you. Fortunately, there are several things you can do to take the bite out of the chilly weather and increased energy costs:

Windows

  • Insulate inside with heavy-duty, clear plastic sheets
  • Apply caulk to the outside joints to prevent leaks
  • Close curtains or shades at night and keep them open during the day
  • Clean windows on the south side of your home to maximize sunlight exposure


Attic and Doors

  • Check insulation to make sure it meets the levels recommended for Louisville
  • Close off and weather-strip doors that lead to cold or outside areas
  • Use draft-stoppers (also called "draft-dodgers" or "draft snakes") to keep heat in and cold out


Plumbing

  • Wrap and insulate waterlines to prevent them from freezing
  • Repair leaky faucets immediately and use low-flow showerheads
  • When you're away, set thermostats at 55°F or higher to prevent pipes from freezing.
    If you set them too low, walls can crack and pipes in external walls may freeze


Furnace

  • Have Prudential inspect you heating system and ducts
  • If they can be closed or sealed off, close heating vents in seldom-used rooms
  • Set your thermostat to 68°F when you're at home and awake and as low as 60°F when you're asleep or away
  • Clean or replace your furnace filters every month


Hearth

  • Have a professional chimney sweep check the chimney and flue system for leaks
  • Keep the flue damper tightly closed when the fireplace is not in use


Water Heater

  • Insulate the tank and the first six feet of hot and cold water pipes connected to the unit
  • Lower the temperature to 120°F for every 10-degree decrease in temperature (you may save 3%-5% on your energy costs)
  • Install heat traps on the hot and cold pipes at the unit to prevent heat loss (some new water heaters have built-in heat traps)
  • Drain a quart of water from the tank every three months to remove sediment that can hinder the performance and efficiency (be sure to follow the manufacturer's guidelines)


Other Helpful Ideas

  • Install rubber gaskets behind outlets and use switch plates on exterior walls
  • Repair damaged wood trim or roof shingles, which can act like a sponge for moisture in the winter
  • Turn off computers, monitors, copiers, printers and fax machines when not in use


Did You Know?

You could save up to 10% on your energy bill by reducing air leaks in your home.  Check the following areas:

  • Dropped ceiling
  • Recessed light
  • Attic entrance
  • Sill plates
  • Water and furnace flues
  • All ducts
  • Doorframes
  • Chimney flashing
  • Window frames
  • Electrical outlets and switches
  • Plumbing and utility access

Dual-Fuel Heating

For maximum energy savings year-round, you may want to consider a dual-fuel system which pairs a heat pump with a high-efficiency gas furnace.

With this dual-fuel option, both systems work to meet household heating demands, but never at the same time.  Each system operates when it is the most cost effective.  The heat pump - an all-in-one heating and cooling system acts as the primary heating system.  But, when the weather becomes too cold for the heat pump to operate efficiently, the furnace provides the extra power you need to stay warm!
