How to Make Your Home More Energy Efficient

Whether you are looking to decrease your impact on the environment or simply save yourself some money on your utility bills chances are you are interested in making your home more energy efficient. At 5 Star Plumbing, Heating & Air, we know how to do just that for your home, and we know it can be confusing to get started.

So, what can you do to make your home more energy efficient?


One of the best ways to make your home more energy efficient is to install a new smart thermostat. Smart thermostats let you program them so your home can be as energy efficient as possible. You can set them to automatically change the temperature in your home when you are away every day for work or sleeping at night. And they also have the ability to learn your schedule and your habits, so you don’t even have to remember to set it yourself. A new thermostat is one of the most simple, and cost-effective ways to make your home more energy efficient.


HVAC unit’s get old, and when they get old, they don’t operate at the optimal level anymore. If you find yourself paying way too much every month in utilities an old or faulty HVAC unit could be the problem. We can evaluate your needs and see if a new HVAC could help your energy efficiency needs.
