Are you frustrated with your Huntington home’s high electrical bills? Finding ways to lower your carbon footprint could benefit both your wallet and the planet!

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), the U.S. electric power industry accounted for about 33 percent of total U.S. energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in 2022.

The more electricity you use in your home, the worse it is on the environment!

At HomeOps, we are committed to providing top-tier electrical services to keep your home safe, efficient, and comfortable. Our experts are here to guide you every step of the way with smart and environmentally friendly electrical choices that can help you save money without compromising on convenience.

Reduce Your New York Home’s Carbon Footprint

Start reducing your home’s carbon footprint without sacrificing your comfort as soon as today! Here are some simple tips to get you started:

1. Upgrade to more efficient lighting and appliances: Upgrading to LED light bulbs is wise for many reasons! LED lighting uses less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs and lasts significantly longer, saving you money on both electricity costs and replacements.

Additionally, consider energy-efficient appliances whenever it is time to replace older models. Look for the ENERGY STAR® label to ensure you are getting the best bang for your buck—and for the environment.

2. Unplug electrical appliances when you are not using them: We are all guilty of leaving electronics on, but those seemingly insignificant amounts of energy can add up over time. Get in the habit of unplugging chargers, TVs, and other devices when not in use. You can even install smart power strips that automatically cut power to unused electronics.

3. Make use of natural light: Take advantage of natural light whenever possible. Open up your curtains during the day and strategically place lamps to illuminate areas that need extra attention. This reduces your reliance on artificial lighting and lowers your electricity bill.

4. Upgrade to a smart thermostat control: Heating and cooling account for a significant portion of a home’s energy use. Invest in a programmable thermostat that allows you to adjust the temperature based on your schedule and preferences. Even a minor adjustment of a few degrees can make a big difference.

Smart thermostats take this a step further by learning and adjusting to your routines, helping you save money effortlessly!

5. Speak with our electrical experts: Regular electrical maintenance can go a long way in saving energy. HomeOps is composed of a team of experienced electricians who can inspect your wiring, identify any potential problems that could be draining power, and recommend solutions to optimize your home’s electrical efficiency.

Additionally, we can advise you on the latest advancements in smart home technology, which can give you even more control over your energy use.

By following these simple tips, you will be well on your way to a greener and more cost-effective lifestyle. Remember, every little bit counts!
