Celebrate Earth Day: What You Can Do to Save Energy at Home

Rhodri Andrews

Tempo Insulation Services is declaring that the 44th Annual Earth Day is a call to action for Welsh and English communities and residents to rekindle their passion for a cleaner environment.

Tempo are offering some advice about steps you can take to save energy in your home:

  • Get an energy assessment – A home energy assessment, with one of our energy surveyors, will evaluate the performance of your home and and will determine what energy efficiency improvements are needed.
  • Draft proof your home – An enormous amount of energy is wasted when inside air (either heated or cooled) escapes to the outside through leaks via poorly fitted, windows and doors.
  • Heat your home efficiently – Replace old, inefficient heating systems with new high-efficiency boilers. Seal ductwork and bleed radiators.
  • Install a programmable thermostat – Programming your thermostat allows you to be comfortable when you are home and save energy when you are away or asleep.
  • Control hot water use – Use low-flow shower heads. A standard shower head can use up to 5.5 gallons of water a minute; low-flow shower heads deliver a high pressure spray at less than 2 gallons per minute. Turn down your water heater to by a couple of degrees; and wash clothes in cool water.
  • Replace light bulbs – Replace old incandescent light bulbs with more efficient CFLs energy saving or LEDs (light emitting diodes). LED’s, for instance, use about 20% of the energy and last up to 50 times longer than a traditional incandescent bulb with the same light output.
  • Buy ENERGY STAR® products – Look for the ENERGY STAR label when purchasing new household products. ENERGY STAR signifies strict energy efficiency guidelines.
  • Invest in renewable energy – After employing basic energy efficiency such as loft and cavity wall insulation and conservation measures in your home, consider installing a solar or solar thermal energy system or another form of clean energy to help power your home, or purchase green power from your utility.
  • Use public transportation or car share or enjoy a cycle to work.
