With cooler days and nights, it is important to ensure that you are efficiently conserving your home’s energy. Saving energy will not only be beneficial for the environment but will also save you quite a bit of money in the process. Keep reading to learn more about energy efficiency, the benefits of being energy efficient in the colder months, and some tips and tricks on how to do so effectively!

Energy efficiency is the mindful use of less energy to perform a task where you would typically exert a lot of energy in the process. This proves to be incredibly useful in saving money. Being energy efficient is an excellent way to decrease your electricity bill and help improve your overall impact on the environment. Simply put, energy efficiency is consciously finding a more effective way to complete tasks that don’t require energy. One of the main ways this helps the environment is that it “[is] a vital component in achieving net-zero emissions of carbon dioxide through decarbonization,” meaning it helps reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere, therefore aiding in slowing down climate change (Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, n.d.).

Studies have shown that “69% of residential emissions were the result of electricity use, with direct fossil fuel combustion for home heating making up the other 32%,” further proving the arguments in favor of making your home more energy efficient (EnergySage, 2021). In being energy efficient, you’ll be helping the environment, and who doesn’t want to do that?!

Keeping in mind the environmental benefits of energy efficiency, there is also the financial advantage of going green! Being energy efficient helps reduce costs to heat, cool, and overall operate your home, creating a massive financial incentive. There are also programs you can be a part of, such as the ENERGY STAR program, which promotes and encourages consumers to utilize energy-efficient products to help combat environmental issues.

This program helps those with energy-efficient homes reduce expenses, has helped individuals save money on their energy bills, and has reduced emissions for homeowners and businesses alike. 

With fall in our midst, this is the perfect time to begin your energy-conscious journey, if you haven’t done so already! Conserving your energy will be one less thing to worry about before the holiday season. Here are a few tips on how to be energy efficient this fall:

  1. Turn off your thermostat

The cold weather is the perfect excuse to shut off your thermostat during the day. Save the environment, and your bank account, by keeping your thermostat between 68 and 70 degrees during the day and trying to turn it down even more at night. Doing so will help to reduce the cost to heat your home in the long run (McKenna, 2020). 

  1. Turn off your lights during the day

Embrace the sunshine and shut off your lights during the day! Let that natural light in and soak up the warmth it’ll provide throughout your house. You can also install LED light bulbs, so when you do turn your lights on at night, they use considerably less energy.

  1. Use your fireplace or try a fire pit

Make conserving energy a fun activity and utilize your fireplace! Turn this into an excuse for some quality family time and heat your fireplace/outdoor fire pit for some extra warmth. Grab some blankets, marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate, and head outside to create memories that’ll last a lifetime (especially since you’ll be helping the environment now!). You’ll save yourself energy, money, and the environment while creating memories to look back on fondly. 

The moral of the story is that there are several benefits to making your house energy efficient. You’ll be able to help your planet and bank account by deciding to go green!
