With over 30 years of experience in the Cincinnati and northern Kentucky area, the certified electricians at Craftsman Electric have truly seen it all. And now, since the cold of winter is quickly approaching, their award-winning residential electrician team would like to offer homeowners some helpful tips for keeping electric bills in check this winter season:
- Make the switch to energy efficient lighting: You might not think of lighting as something that significantly contributes to higher energy costs in the winter. But, with shorter days and less natural light, you lose your lights more often during the winter than in any other season. By switching to energy-efficient lighting, you can slash your energy bill big-time. The electricians at Craftsman Electric recommend LED lighting, due to the durability of the bulbs, as well as the affordability, quality of light, and overall efficiency.
- Consider solar panels: Many electric contractors can install solar panels for you, but Craftsman Electric also offers a solar power feasibility study. They can come to your home or place of business and assess how easy it would be to convert some or all of your energy to solar power. They can also provide you with job cost estimates, as well as potential savings estimates.
- Make sure your home is well insulated: Old windows and doors, as well as poorly insulated homes, can leak warmth during the winter months. If you feel a draft near the windows and doors in your home, chances are you’re losing heat through cracks that are often created by warping wood, and by expanding and contracting window and door frames.
If you want to make sure your household is as energy-efficient as possible this winter, contact the best electrician team in the area at Craftsman Electric for an energy or lighting audit.
