Is your home as energy efficient as it could be? When it comes to saving money on your electric bill, there are several tips you can use to help – such as using energy efficient bulbs and making sure your windows and doors have weather stripping on them. But what else can you do – and what will make the biggest impact on lowering your bill?
HomeSelfe (pronounced ‘Home Selfie’) is an app that helps you save $$$ with a free evaluation on your home’s energy inefficiencies and provides you solutions to them. The app is free and can be downloaded and used immediately to start discovering ways for you to save money.
To get started you simply download the app, create an account, and begin doing an assessment of your house. HomeSelfe walks through each room asking questions like if you have double pane windows, what kind of light bulbs you have, and so on.
In each room tap on the little bullseyes, answer a few questions and then move on to the next room. If a question does not pertain to you, you can tap that you do not have one, and there is even an “I don’t know” option on several – which I admit I had to use a couple times.
Once you have completed your entire house, Homeselfe provides a free, easy-to-read report that provides a clear picture of your home’s energy efficiency, where you need to improve, and what upgrades take priority. Homeselfe has worked in partnership with local, state, and the nation’s largest public utilities to develop a tool that is easy to use, free, and gets results for your home—and your wallet. It can even connect you with qualified local contractors, and provide information on special offers and rebates provided by your local government, so you can quickly earn money back on your upgrades, and start reaping the long-term benefits sooner.
