However, we do know a few plumbing and home improvement techniques that will help you to reduce your energy bill every single time.

Studies prove that water heating and regulating home temperatures is accountable for almost 60% of what you spend on energy every month. Following these strategies and techniques listed below will reduce your energy bill significantly.

Home Improvement And Energy Bill Reduction Tips

One of the things that you should consider for reducing your energy bill every month is to install an integrated heating and water system.  Although this may seem like a lot to most people, going beyond tankless systems is really a good idea these days.  These types of systems work together to heat both your home’s water and air, which helps to reduce expenses and obviously your energy bill. 

An integrated heating and water heating system is made up of a tankless gas water heater and a hydronic air handler. We recommend these types of systems because they are very efficient for heating water and air at the same time.  Installing one of these systems in your home will surely help you to reduce your energy bill fast.

Lowering the temperature of your water heater is an excellent technique for reducing your home’s energy bill that anyone can do.  By lowering your water heater’s temperature by only ten degrees, you could be saving tons of money every month. These heat settings should be more than enough for your household’s hot water needs.  

Installing a thermostat that can be programmed to your personal settings will also improve your household and reduce your energy bill. If you know that you are not going to be home for a few hours, lowering your thermostat will help to reduce your energy expenses and will also protect your cooling and heating equipment.  

You should also remember to check your air filter, integrated heating system and other equipment regularly. This will help you to keep them in a perfect state and not produce more energy expenses.  By following some of these strategies and techniques, you will also help to protect our environment.
