Do you ever catch yourself saying or doing something your parents did when you were a child? I know I do, and quite often, specifically when it comes to saving on energy costs. ‘Close the door you are letting the air conditioning out” is one I say often for sure. In today’s economy every penny counts right? If you have appliances that aren’t energy efficient you could potentially be throwing your money down the drain and not even realize it.October is Energy Awareness Month and it’s a great time to upgrade to new energy-efficient appliances, televisions or computers to save money on your home energy bills. Did you know that the average home’s annual energy bill is $2,200? Beyond savings from simply having energy efficient products, local utility companies provide additional rebates that can save you up to $300.
