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.
