Whether you’re wanting to live a greener lifestyle, be kinder to our planet, looking to save on utility costs or all of the above, Courier Times and HomeSelfe want to help. In a recent post on their website, the Bucks County Courier Times from Pennsylvania, recommended downloading the free energy audit program available from HomeSelfe.
“We want to empower families to make positive changes for their finances, the environment and their families in 2016,” shared HomeSelfe Co-Founder and Spokesperson, Ameeta Jain.
“Homeselfe provides homeowners with tools and resources catered to your home to do just that. The best part about taking a HomeSelfe is that it provides you with practical information on how to save hundreds on your utility bills and gives you more ways to save money by providing rebate information from your local utility company at your fingertips – and it’s free!”
More Practical Advice
While the HomeSelfe app will pinpoint specific ways and places your home could be squandering resources, they also offer general information and advice on saving power. Jain suggests being more proactive by looking for cracks, leaks and gaps around windows and doors. The application of some inexpensive caulk, installation of weatherstripping or draft guards can slow or stop the escape of this energy from your home.
Along with shutting off lights in empty rooms, Ameeta recommends closing vents in areas that are seldom used, like guest bedrooms. Take it one step further and completely unplug devices that aren’t in use, like an alarm clock or cable box that can be slowing leaching electricity while not functioning for any specific reason.
