Reducing Your Urban Energy Costs

Residents of expensive homes and apartments can use any relief available when it comes to utility costs. Between temperature maintenance and lighting, electricity can be one of the biggest culprits of high bills. The good news is that there are three simple ways to help reduce your energy costs, no matter what time of year it is.

1. Window Coverings

When the sun is in the right position, ultraviolet rays can turn certain rooms of your home into a sauna, especially when you have a high-rise with wall-to-wall windows. More heat means more energy needed to cool your home. By installing solar shades New York condos and urban homes are able to maintain a more comfortable temperature. Blocking out intense sunlight allows your air conditioner to rest more often, and your energy bills should go down as a result. 

2. LED Lightbulbs

Some people are turned off by the higher price tag of LED lightbulbs, but the investment should ultimately save you more down the road. These lights use far less energy and they last a great deal longer, meaning you won’t have to buy replacement bulbs as often. During the colder months of the year, you have to rely on artificial light because the sun goes down earlier. Under those circumstances, it’s helpful to have this cost-efficient alternative.

3. Programmable Thermostat

If your home is empty for most of the day, there’s no reason to run your air conditioning while you’re away. By the same token, you don’t want to come home to a scorching environment at the end of the day. A programmable thermostat allows you to designate a specific time when your system runs. With this option, you can set it to power up with enough time to cool the home before you return, without having to run it all day long.

You can make smart adjustments to your home’s temperature and lighting options and save lots of money on your energy costs. Consider these solutions to start lowering your bills now.
