With simple steps, you can save hundreds of dollars in home energy costs each year.
Many steps such as turning off lights don’t cost a dime. Others can include home automation devices to remotely adjust your thermostat or brew morning coffee, but low-tech efforts will also work. You can save up to $100 a year by replacing five incandescent light bulbs with LEDs, according to SmarterHouse.org. LEDs use 75% less energy and last 25 times longer.
