Easy Ways to Make Your Home More Energy Efficient
When it comes to going green, it is best to start making improvements where you live. This is especially true for residents of Florida, as the solar heat in this part of the country can be unforgiving. You do not want to spend more on air conditioning and other artificial sources of cooling than you need to, of course. By making a few simple changes, your home will be comfortable without you having to break the bank.
Ways to Reduce Home Energy Consumption
One of the most important things you can do is keep your curtains or blinds closed when you are out of the house for the day. The blinds being drawn shut will help reduce the amount of heat from the sun’s UV rays that enter your home. When you return home, the indoors will be cooler than it would have been otherwise.

Providing shade for your HVAC unit is a simple way to cut back on your monthly energy costs. Direct sunlight will heat up the air conditioning unit, requiring it to consume more energy to cool itself as well as the air inside your home. Planting a tree nearby to create that shade is an easy solution.
Replacing your old windows for newer, energy efficient models is also a smart move. Especially if you contact NewSouth, as our high-quality windows come with a non-prorated, unconditional lifetime warranty on the product and installation.
