Energy efficiency FAQs
How long will it take me to save money if I buy
energy efficient appliances?
The fact is that energy efficient appliances will cost you a little
money in order to purchase them and have them installed. It is also
true that the energy savings will not be realized immediately thanks
to the fact that you likely will have spent thousands on new appliances.
It may take a few years before you truly begin to see a return on investment,
but once you do, you will find that you will likely be saving significant
amounts of money.
What should I know before installing solar panels?
It is not as easy as it looks. Some people take a look at solar panels
and think they will have no problem installing them. While this is sometimes
true, it is certainly not always true. You should know that when you
install solar panels, it is very important that the panels fit tightly
together with minimal movement. It can be difficult to keep the solar
energy flowing properly if the panels do not line up just right.
I don’t have a lot of money to spend on new things. What
else can I do to be more energy efficient?
Many people face this problem. They want to save money, but cannot
upfront the money they need on new items to be able to do so. One of
the simplest things a person can do to save energy and money is to close
cracks and openings in doors and windows. This can be done with plastic
wrap and a hair dryer. This will help keep the warm air warm and the
cool air cool in your home.
