New Energy Saver

Posted on 18th September, by Craig Zamary in Uncategorized. No Comments

A typical American family spends nearly $2,000 per year on their home energy bills. Much of that money, however, is wasted on air leaks and drafts. With fall right around the corner — and cooler temperatures on their way — we are relaunching our EnergySaver.gov website with fresh updates that will help you and your family save money by saving energy.

Our Energy Saver site is well known for practical tips and advice on making homes more energy efficient, but we’re adding a new feature called “Savings Projects” — articles with easy, step-by-step, do-it-yourself instructions to home energy efficiency improvements that will save you money. The first two projects, which focus on caulking and weatherstripping, explain how to seal air leaks around windows and door frames, with information on the expected costs and the time needed to complete each project. Each one will provide visitors to the site with low-cost ways to lower their energy bills.

Energy Saver Tips, one of the site’s most popular features, offers practical ideas for reducing household energy consumption — such as using a programmable thermostat to reduce heating and cooling bills or upgrading light bulbs to save money. The site also provides information about local tax credits, rebates and energy efficiency financing that may be available in your community.

As part of this upgrade, we’ve also incorporated EnergySaver.gov into our Energy.gov platform, which will give it more visibility and make it easier to access important Energy Saver content from throughout the agency’s website.

The bottom line is this: saving energy saves you money. In many cases, families can cut their energy bills by as much as 20 or 30 percent by making energy efficiency upgrades like the ones found on EnergySaver.gov. And don’t forget to bookmark the site, because we’ll continue to add new “Savings Projects” and other valuable information that will help you and your family save money by saving energy.
