How To Save Energy On Any Budget
During the Covid lockdown, although I can't blame it all on Covid, I was deep in a Youtube wormhole and came across videos of a guy that upcycled and reused common items for creative purposes. We've all seen those stories, whether it be duct tape, Popsicle sticks or paper clips. My personal favorite was making a bow and arrow out of a paper clip and rubber band. Well how about actually putting some of those ideas to work and actually saving you money.
The good news is that there are things you can do to lower that utility bill on any budget. There are simple things you can do for no cost and upgrades, that make an impact, can be done for under $1000.

Before spending any money, it is a good idea to get a home energy audit. Green ID is a qualified, licensed and bonded HVAC contractor and charges only $99 and is well worth the money. A good audit should be more than just a visual examination and should check static pressure, room pressure, condition of the duct work, adequacy of return and supply registers, and as assessment of the air conditioning unit. Audit results will help you determine where the money is best spent and give you some low cost/ no cost ideas to reduce your energy bills and make your home more comfortable.
