With a large selection of Hunter Douglas window treatments for you to select from, finding one that suits your needs is easy. Here are just a few of the ways you can save money in your California home this year.

Save Energy with Energy Efficient Appliances

While upgrading your appliances may be a major investment in the short term, switching over to energy-efficient appliances can provide you with several benefits to enjoy for the foreseeable future. Specifically, ENERGY STAR appliances will generally use around 20% less energy than typical appliances that aren’t ENERGY STAR designated. Not only are energy-efficient appliances eco-friendly, but they will also help save you money each month when the bill comes since they’re using less energy.

Using Less Water Saves Energy

While we may not realize it, the use of water in our homes uses a lot of energy. The use of water increases your energy consumption from the heating and transporting of it. So, the less you use, the lower your energy bill will be. There are simple steps your family can take to reduce the amount of water consumed.

  • Take shorter showers
  • Repair leaking/dripping faucets
  • Load dishwasher and washing machine to full capacity

By incorporating some of these tips into your daily life, you can see a reduction in water usage and save energy every month in your home.
