1. Replace your old fashion bulbs with fluorescent ones. This is a very tiny addition that will not cost you too much and will definitely pay you back. Fluorescent bulbs are proven to consume smaller amount of current compared to old fashion ones and hence your monthly bills will significantly decrease.

2. A showerhead that can control the water flow. Showerheads are the thing that consumes a great amount of water. That is why investing in a showerhead that can control the amount of water flow will save water and hence help you spend less amount of money on monthly bills.

3. The same rule applies for your toilet. As toilets are the next thing after showerheads that consume the greatest amount of water investing in a low flow toilet will help you reduce your bills costs.

4. Insulation. This is also a must when it comes to home improvements. In winter a significant amount of the heat in your home is lost through the walls, the floor and the roof. The same thing applies for summer when the cooling is also lost. This influences your bills a lot. That is why investing in attic insulation from a team like Imperial Building & Roofing Co will help you reduce their cost. Home Improvement Tricks_2

5. Buy sensitive switches for the lighting outside the home. Smart sensors that switch on only when there is someone around will help you reduce the bills for current. Moreover with the help of these switches you can easily guess if there is someone outside the house.

6. Invest in a home system for energy audit. It is a more serious investment and is a bit more expensive but once you have it installed you will find out how useful it is. It will help you to keep tracks of all the energy that is consumed and lost throughout the month. This will help you understand the points that lose more energy and fix them.

7. If your washing machine is old you should definitely replace it with a new one. Old machines consume too much water and energy and this reflects your bills. Investing in a new machine that can control the water flow is one of the most important home improvements that you need.
