Excerpted from an “Ask The Expert” article in RIS  written by Jay Gregg, Director of Marketing with Pillar To Post Home Inspectors…

“As a homeowner, how can I keep my energy costs low while keeping my house in great condition?  Instead of running the air conditioning throughout the hottest months of the year, there are simple tips to keep the energy costs down and the value of the home up…

KEEPING THE HOUSE COOL:

  • Open the windows at night
  • Seal window & door cracks
  • Take advantage of ceiling fans
  • Keep the thermostat high

SAVE ENERGY TIME ALL THE YEAR ROUND:

  • Use the microwave, most energy-saving way to cook of all
  • Avoid using appliances during peak hours (during daily business hours)
  • Your dishwasher is more energy efficient than hand washing
  • Turn off lights & appliances when leaving home
  • Stock the refrigerator. A full frig traps cool air inside when the door is opened
  • Get rid of old light bulbs

Some of these things may come as a surprise, but the real shock is how much they can  help the upkeep on your home.  By following these simple tips, much less stress will be put on the home, paving the way for a smoother home inspection when the time comes!”
