Small Energy Drains Can Really Add Up: How To Identify Other Energy Inefficient Appliances In Your

Home Improvement
You know that heating and air conditioning units account for more than half of all energy usage in the American home. Heating and air conditioning cost Americans 11 billion dollars last year, not to mention the long and short term environmentalimpacts and costs. In an effort to increase your energy efficiency, save money, and lower your personal carbon footprint, you dutifully have your home heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system tuned up every year. You change your air filters monthly and have conducted an energy audit in order to seal leaky ducts and find other energy inefficientspots in your home. As a good environmental and fiscal steward, you replace your old appliances with energy efficient ones and swap out incandescent lights for CFC bulbs. Your home is as energy efficient as it can be without investing in a new heating and cooling system.

Or is it? While Opelika heating and air-conditioning experts recommend all these steps, there are also a number of smaller appliances that can draw energy from your home and take cash out of your pocket on a regular basis. By themselves, these appliances do not add up to a lot, but with increased daily usage and taken as an aggregate, they can significantly increase your electric bill.

• Cable box: Since your cable box doesn’t have an “on/off” switch, it is always drawing power, about 17 watts regardless of whether you are watching TV or not. The slower loading times for special features, like the on screen viewer guide also adds to the overall energy inefficiency.

• Wireless modem and router: Your wireless cable modem and router is also “on” 24/7, contributing to another energy draw.

• DVR: According to the National Resources Defense Council, your cable box and DVR use more power than a new Energy Star rated refrigerator.

• Plasma TV’s: Plasma TV’s draw an average of 300 watts of energy per year, triple the amount used by an LCD television set. If you are shopping for a new plasma TV, search out and energy efficient or Energy Star rated model.

• Air purifier and dehumidifier: Again, these tiny appliances pack a big power punch, nearly 550-kilowatt hours a year. This is more than an energy efficient fridge.

Air conditioner repair in Opelika is a good option for units under five years old. Many of the parts may still be under warranty. You can replace the parts and repair the system for much less than you can replace your unit. Condensers, coils, and compressors are often covered by a limited five year warranty. With a good maintenance plan, your “newish” air conditioning system will run as efficiently and as effectively as a brand new model. Heating and air specialists in Opelika can recommend the best course of action for your home.

Maintaining your heating and cooling system in Opelikahome is only one aspect of an energy efficient home. Keeping an eye on other appliances and wasted energy usage plays an important part in keeping energy costs under control.
