Every home has a number of energy wasting characteristics.Many of them can be easily corrected. Air loss through windows and exterior doors are responsible for a significant portion of our energy losses. Windows that are not properly insulated and thresholds that are not installed properly allow cold air to enter during the winter and cool air to escape during the summer heat. A lack of proper insulation in attics is another area where we lose energy as heat escapes through the attics of our homes.

No one wants to be thought of as a sloven, but without stopping to think about your consumption habits, you might be doing yourself a disservice. When’s the last time you’ve checked out the breakdown on your energy bill? Some of the charges you’re incurring each month could also be representative of some of the easiest ways to cut back on your consumption. Here are the top three easiest ways to scale back your energy usage and improve your Eco-friendliness:

1. Turn off the lights! With all the amenities we have in the 21st century, it’s easy to indulge without thinking of the little things. If you’re leaving the house every day with a bathroom light on or the porch lights still shining from the night before, you’re wasting far more energy than you need to. It’s an easy fix, too; take a quick run through the house every morning before you leave for work or school and flick off any switches you may have forgotten.

2. Think about switching your electricity supplier. Some suppliers offer packages that reward customers for using energy at off-peak hours. If a plan like that can help you save money, you’ll more than likely be motivated to reduce your typical energy consumption. When you shop through Texas Electric Companies, California, New York or any of the other high-usage states, you’ll notice how badly our country needs individuals to reel in their consumption. Lead the charge in your neighborhood!

3. Update your home. Older computers, refrigerators and even microwaves use quite a bit more energy than the current models. Make a point to buy newer products so you’re not using any more electricity than you need to be. Plus, it never hurts to have the latest and greatest in technology. You’ll be envied by conservationists and tech junkies just the same!
