  1. Programmable thermostat

A programmable thermostat is a thermostat that adjusts temperatures throughout different times of day. For example, during a cooling season a thermostat can be programmed to cause temperatures in a house to rise during work hours when no one is home and then drop when occupants return home. A programmable thermostat can save up to 10% on heating and cooling costs

  1. Motion sensored light fixtures

Installing motion sensor light fixtures can save you up to $100 a year. With motion sensored light fixtures you only use and pay for light when you need it. This not only saves you money, but avoids unnecessary energy consumption. In some cases motion sensors can be installed in already existing light fixtures with the help of a professional.

  1. Light dimmers

Switching from light switches to light dimmers could potential reduce energy use by 20%. Even when dimmers are at their highest level they automatically save 4-9% in energy use. Not only do light dimmers save money and energy, they offer you the benefit of altering lighting to a given environment or entertainment purpose.

  1. Insulate outlets and light switches

Outlets and light switches create opportunities for cold and warm air flow. Insulating these areas can be a major energy saver. This is especially true when outlets or light switches are located on outside walls. Consulting a professional can ensure that you are not at risk for injury or property damage.
