Dazzling lights adorning your doorway and wavering weather patterns and temperatures can be a huge energy drain.</p></li><li><p>Here are five easy ways to reduce your </p><p>energy consumption:</p></li><li><p>1. Heat economically</p><p>Heating and cooling costs account for 45% of an average homes energy cost. To avoid skyrocketing energy tab, make sure that your home is well-insulated. Before showing your home to buyers looking for Candlewood Lake waterfront homes, seal gaps and cracks around the windows and doors first. Then, have your furnace tuned up and your fireplace cleaned to ensure that the heating sources heat efficiently.</p></li><li><p> 2. Avoid excessive appliance use</p><p>Another way to keep your electric bill down is by avoiding excessive use of appliances, especially when cooking and cleaning. Cook multiple dishes at the same time in your oven. If you are cooking only for one or two, use a more energy efficient toaster oven or microwave. You may also consider doing the dishes by hand and turning on the dishwasher only when it is full.</p></li><li><p>3. Prevent stoppages</p><p>Bathrooms and kitchens are usually the top </p><p>selling points of a home. Make sure to check these </p><p>areas and find out if they are functioning well. </p><p>Check that toilets, faucets, showerheads, garbage </p><p>disposals, and dishwashers are operational to </p><p>avoid delays and inconveniences especially </p><p>during your households busiest times. </p></li><li><p>Remember to clean the faucet and showerhead filters and to inspect the toilet tank valve systems to check if they are flushing properly. You may also use a disinfecting cleaner specifically formulated for your dishwasher to remove odors, food residue, and mineral build-up. This can also improve water circulation.</p></li><li><p>4. Control Temperature</p><p>Use a programmable thermometer to automatically switch warmer daytime settings to cooler settings come bedtime. Set your thermostat to an acceptable temperature. If there are buyers of waterfront homes in Candlewood Lake viewing your home, it is best to turn the thermostat down by 3 to 5 degrees to create a more comfortable environment for the guests. For each degree you lower your thermostat, you can reduce your energy use by 1 to 3 percent.</p></li><li><p>5. Shut doors and close curtains</p><p>Heating or cooling the entire home can be costly. To avoid unnecessary expense, shut the doors in the areas that you are not using and only heat or cool the rooms you spend the most time in. Ensure that your curtains or blinds seal your windows properly and that your curtains are closed at night and during the day when it is too warm. Do not forget to check the doors and windows for any holes that may cause the air to leak in or out. </p></li><li><p>Cutting down energy consumption in your home is easier with these tips.
