Remodeling your home can be a fun way to explore your creativity. Some projects are necessary, while others might be simply to get a new look and feel. Regardless of the home remodeling project you’re considering, keep energy efficiency in the back of your mind.

A simple window replacement or upgrading the appliances in your kitchen could make your home more energy-efficient. Here are several ideas to help you remodel with energy efficiency in mind.

Upgrade Your Windows

Old windows with poor seals and insulation are major factors when it comes to wasting energy. Letting in hot air during the summer and cold air during the winter makes your HVAC system work harder to keep the interior comfortable.

An energy-efficient window replacement is one of the top home remodeling projects homeowners choose today. You might be surprised at how much lower your monthly energy bill is after the window replacement.

Replace Appliances With Energy-Efficient Versions

Your appliances account for a decent amount of your overall energy consumption. These include washers and dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, and more. If you hire a kitchen remodeling service, ask them if they know the most energy-efficient appliances you can install. You can also look at the product’s annual operating costs before purchasing to select the most energy-efficient model possible.

Switch to Programmable Thermostats

Programmable thermostats can save homeowners a lot of money. We all say it’s easy enough to adjust the thermostat when we leave home for the day or weekend, but when you’re rushed, it’s easy to forget. Then you’re cooling a house with no one home and wasting energy.

Programmable or smart thermostats can ensure this doesn’t happen. Set the thermostat according to your schedule, or have an app on your smartphone that lets you adjust it remotely at any time.

Evaluate Your Home Insulation

It might be good to ask your home remodeling contractor to evaluate your home’s insulation during any remodeling project. Proper insulation can help your HVAC system operate more efficiently and keep you more comfortable in your home year-round.
