Michigan Energy Auditor Helps Homeowners Save Money On Their Utility Bills
Facing rising utility bills, many homeowners throughout Southeast Michigan are looking for ways to improve energy efficiency. On the other hand, many of them think that home energy improvements are prohibitively expensive.
Plymouth, MI (I-Newswire) August 8, 2012 - According to Mike Goewey, a home energy auditor in Plymouth, Michigan with nearly 2 decades of experience, many simple, low-cost home energy improvements can easily help homeowners save 25% or more on their energy bills. “My clients are often surprised when I tell them that many home energy improvements are actually very affordable,” he noted. “They often witness immediate savings on their utility bills.”
Mike recommends 5 simple ways to help homeowners save money on their utility bills this year:
1. Get the furnace serviced every 1-2 years. Fuel bills rise as much as 10-15% as a result of inefficient equipment operation. It’s like having a fireplace that burns money.
2. Check and change the filters on the heating and cooling system. Restricted air flow contributes to higher energy bills and a lower standard of air quality in the home. For best results, invest in a good filter.
3. Caulk and seal around the windows & doors to prevent air infiltration. Repair gaps on the exterior such as A/C lines entering the home and gaps on exterior doors and replace any worn weather stripping.
4. Recessed lights and exhaust fans (there is also a gap in the form box) often contribute to a home's air leakage. Place a foam board box around each socket with a minimum clearance of 6 inches around the light.
5. Homeowners with a fireplace should close the damper when the fireplace is not being used, as conditioned air can be drawn up the flue. He recommends installing insulated glass doors in the fireplace to eliminate interior air from being drawn into the opening when the fireplace is being used.
