How To Make Your Home More Efficient
To make your home more energy efficient, plan ahead and look into special savings programs offered by your provider, local, state or federal agencies. It may be possible for you to get rebates on certain appliances as well as the type of insulation used in your home. Items such as washing machines, water heaters and heating equipment may qualify you for a savings. Efficient lighting and smart thermostats, along with tools that help manage and monitor energy usage, may also apply.
Plan for these energy savers as you are designing and building your home. The owners of Snoqualmie Lodge can attest that it pays to save!
