Lowering the amount of energy you use in your home is both a way to reduce the strain on your budget and to lower your impact on the environment. Energy conservation is good for both you and the planet. However, you might find yourself struggling with the best ways to save energy, aside from obvious tactics like remembering to turn off lights, keeping the refrigerator shut, and lowering the amount you run your air conditioner and heater.
Mister Sparky® of the Bay Area is here to help. With just one call to an electrician in Santa Rosa, CA at our offices, you can find out about the conservation services we offer. We have a variety of options available, so you can find the service that will best fit your home and lifestyle. Here are a few of the services that we can supply for your home to help you save energy:
Solar panel wiring
If you already have solar panels (photovoltaic panels) installed on your roof, then you’ve made a great stride in “going green” with your home’s energy. But make sure that those panels always help you: keep their wiring maintained so you receive the maximum efficient energy supply. Call us for the wiring maintenance on your panels to keep them working their best.
Light timer switches
“Never keep lights on when you don’t need them.” That’s a standard mantra for energy conservation. But it’s easier said than done—and that’s why installing timer switches to turn your lights off automatically can make the job simpler. These switches will take over the task of turning lights on or off automatically so you don’t have to worry about forgetting to do it yourself.
Motion lighting installation
Here’s another way to conserve energy through lighting management. You don’t have to leave your outdoor lights on at all: they will turn on only as you need them when they sense motion. And if you forget to turn them off, they will turn themselves off as well. Motion sensor lights are also very effective as security measures; people who shouldn’t be near your house won’t want to stay around when the outdoor lights suddenly pop on.
Regular electrical maintenance
Perhaps the best way to make sure that your home conserves instead of wastes energy is to have your electrical system regularly maintained by professionals. Electricians will examine your home every year to spot places where aging wiring or malfunctioning systems are causing you to lose energy efficiency.
