Easy Tricks to Use Less Energy in MA
Fall in to Savings: Ways to Save Energy This Season
The first day of autumn will be here before we know it! Make sure your Massachusetts home is ready for the upcoming cold weather. Use these tips to spend less on energy this season.
Things You Can Do Yourself to Help Save Energy
There are plenty of DIY hacks you can incorporate into your daily life to reduce your energy use. Follow these industry tips to lower day-to-day energy use and in turn, lower your monthly energy bills.
- Use Your Curtains
Open curtains during the day to let the sun naturally warm your living space. Close curtains at night to keep out the evening chill.
- Adjust the Thermostat
Set your thermostat to a lower temperature when you are out of the house or asleep. If you still have a manual thermostat, upgrading to a programmable thermostat will provide the same energy-saving benefits with added convenience!
- Wash Clothes in Cold Water
When you are doing laundry, wash your clothes in cold water instead of hot water.
- Seal Air Leaks
Check doors and windows for drafts. If you find any, seal them up with weatherstripping or caulking. This will prevent cold air from getting in, and precious heated air from getting out.
Things Your Energy Provider Can Do to Help You Save Energy
Contact your Massachusetts energy provider to sign up for these valuable services that can help significantly lower your energy use this fall and for the upcoming winter.
- Book a Tune-Up
Regular visits from your local HVAC specialists can reduce your energy bills by up to 10%. How does one service visit do so much for your annual energy use? During your tune-up, a Noonan Energy service technician will perform a safety inspection, complete routine cleaning, evaluate operating efficiency, and make recommendations for any necessary part replacements. This will ensure that your boiler or furnace is operating at the highest efficiency.
- Upgrade Your Equipment
If your boiler or furnace is 15 years or older, you are probably due for an upgrade. Beyond the cost of more frequent breakdowns and repairs, older heating equipment is much less efficient than newer models. New high-efficiency boilers and furnaces use significantly less fuel to produce high levels of comfort.
- Enroll in a Service Plan
Sign up for a Heating Comfort Plan with Noonan Energy to take advantage of valuable preventative maintenance and just-in-case coverage. Service plans are designed to provide service to keep your boiler or furnace operating at peak performance. Additional perks include 24/7 emergency service and parts and labor discounts.
