New Year’s Resolutions with Energy in Mind

Posted On: December 25, 2019

New Year’s resolutions don’t have to be the same every year. This year, instead of promising to lose weight or join a gym, commit to energy efficiency with these resolutions:

I resolve to automate my energy account.
Paperless Billing and AutoPay takes the extra steps out of managing your energy account, saves paper and can even save you money. Plus, you’ll never have to worry about missing a payment!

I resolve to monitor my energy usage.
When you have more information about your energy usage, you can make smarter choices that can lead to more savings. The Weekly Energy Report outlines your usage in simple graphs, so you can pinpoint when you use the most energy and make changes.

I resolve to stop buying incandescent bulbs.

The next time a light bulb goes out at home, commit to replacing it with an LED light bulb. You may not see the difference immediately, but your LED bulb will last almost 50 times longer than an incandescent bulb and is one step closer to energy efficiency in your home.

I resolve to perform a home energy audit.
The best way to find out how your home uses energy is by doing a full energy audit. You can either hire a professional or answer a few questions on the Homeselfe app to receive custom recommendations on how to reduce usage in your home.
