Next Step Living Announces Ways to Lower Electric Bills in the Home

Home Energy Solutions Company Next Step Living®, the leading provider of whole-home energy solutions in the Northeast, Offers Ways to Save Energy and Money

Just in time for Earth Day, Next Step Living announces some of its best energy-saving tips for all rooms in the home to save homeowners energy and money.

Electronics can play a large part in wasted energy, with “phantom energy” accounting for up to 10% of energy bills. This happens when electronics continue to draw power on standby mode. Here are a few tips for lowering electric bills in the home:

*Unplug any battery chargers, cell phone chargers or power adapters when not in use. Unplugging will ensure that no power is being drained.
*Always turn off the lights when leaving the bedroom or other living spaces when not in use.
*Use inexpensive outlet gaskets to insulate and air seal holes around outlets.
*Invest in electronics that are Energy Star certified to save even more money in the home.

Next Step Living is the leading provider of home energy solutions in the Northeast, with its newest office opening in Purchase, New York in early 2015. Whether looking for solar panels, efficient windows or insulation, Next Step Living offers a number of solutions in its whole-home approach to help make homes more energy-efficient and sustainable. In late 2014, the company expanded its footprint as a thought leader with the creation of HomeEnergy.Tips, designed to help homeowner combat high energy costs.

“Having Next Step Living perform an energy assessment of my home was one of the best decisions I’ve made as a homeowner,” says John Kenny, a Next Step Living customer from New City, New York. “My energy advisor not only explained how my home was using – and losing – energy, but also what improvements I could make that would have the biggest impact on increasing my comfort and lowering utility bills.”

Take the first step, and schedule a home energy assessment.
