5 Energy Efficient Home Upgrades To Save You Money
commitment to go green in your home not only helps the environment, but also
your wallet. The federal government and many states are offering tax breaks for
upgrades made in 2013. So, take an interest in Mother Nature and advantage of
the tax incentives by making your home more energy efficient.
1. Invest in a tankless water heater.
heaters heat your shower or washing machine water as needed, so they are not
constantly working to keep a large amount of water continually hot. Electric
tankless water heaters can sometimes be twice as energy efficient as standard
water tank heaters.
2. Install ceiling fans.
help circulate the air in a room to make it feel cooler. This reduces the need
to turn on appliances that consume a lot of energy. Leave the air conditioner
off just a little bit longer; open the windows and turn on the fans!
3. Upgrade the plumbing.Adding aerators into faucets
and showerheads can reduce the amount of water you use. Also, replacing old
toilets that might use as much as 3.5 gallons per flush with a new low-flow
model can significantly reduce your utility bill. 4. Change your air filters.
Letting dirt and
dust build up on an air filter restricts the flow of air throughout your home.
This makes it harder for your system to heat and cool your house, which uses
more energy and costs more money. Filters are easy to change and should be done
5. Utilize sustainable materials.If you’re
installing new flooring, opt for bamboo or local hardwoods. Or if you’re redoing a
there’s a huge selection of sustainable and recycled materials available, such
as compressed newspaper or quartz countertops.
Even if you’re
not quite ready to make the investment to upgrade your home, it’s always smart
to have a plan in case the furnace dies or the refrigerator goes on the fritz.

"We were in the process of getting ready to sell our home, and I had inquired online about a home for sale online. Angela’s name came as a top rated sales person for Burleson and surrounding areas. We met with Angela, and upon arrival, she presented herself as a very professional sales lady, and very easy to understand and get along with. She had a great sense of humor as well. We have enjoyed the process of doing business with Angela, and have admired her patience with us during the difficult process of selling and buying, as we were new to the whole experience. I believe it has been overall the most demanding experience of us in the whole process, and she was more than patient rolling with the punches and informing us of what was to happen next. She was with us the entire way, and I highly recommend Angela to anyone that is embarking on the home selling and buying experience."
