Low-Cost or Free Energy-Efficient Projects

When it comes to saving energy, there are a lot of things you can do around the house to help the situation. Bigger projects, like switching to a new, energy-efficient air conditioner may have the biggest impact, but you can’t count out the effects of smaller, DIY projects. Energy Star recently released a list of energy-saving ideas, and On Time Elmer wanted a few of the simpler projects with you.

  • Weather strip your entry doors
  • Installing a programmable thermostat, or using a programmable thermostat if you already have one
  • Replace old light bulbs with CFL or LED bulbs
  • Turn off your lights, TVs and computers when you’re not using them
  • Compost your leftover food
  • Get an energy audit from your utility company
  • Regularly replace your AC filter

Some of those projects can be checked off the list for free. Others cost only a few dollars. Whichever the situation, these low cost energy efficient projects can end up making a big impact on your electric bill.
