Installing solar panels to generate electricity for your home is one way of moving towards conserving the planet’s resources. Solar power is not an option for every New Hampshire household, but don’t let that deter you from using energy more effectively. Reducing home energy consumption can reduce energy bills and may even help to save on NH home insurance costs.

·                 Replace lighting with energy efficient light fittings
·                 Buy a programmable thermostat so you can adjust your tempature when you are not home or sleeping.
·                 Clean your heating and cooling systems regularly for efficient operation.
·                 Wash clothes in cold water.
·                 Unplug appliances, phone chargers, and coffee makers that are not in use as they can waste 5% of your electricity.
·                 Use pressure cookers and slow cookers in preference to ovens and stove tops.
·                 Wear warm socks or put on a sweater to keep warm rather than switching on a heater to warm the whole room.
·                 Consider the Energy Star rating of any electrical appliance you are thinking of buying. A high number of Energy Stars on the label indicates that the device is energy efficient.

Some homeowners might want to consider using solar powered lighting in the garden. Exterior lights that are powered by their own solar panels operate independently of your home’s electrical installation, and solar powered security spotlights triggered by motion detectors can be an effective deterrent to intruders. Let our agency see if we can save you some money on your NH homeowners insurance.
