Want to save money on your electric bill? Call us for a consultation!

During certain times of year (particularly the summer months), we often walk to the mailbox in fear on the days when our electric bill arrives. Arkansas summers can be punishingly hot, and they last for much more than 3 months. Staying cool and comfortable comes at a price.The good news is that there are several ways to significantly reduce your energy usage with a little “belt tightening.” Even though it might not seem like very much when you get your monthly statement, it all adds up over time. And wouldn’t you rather have those few extra dollars in your own pocket instead of the utility companies?

Gary Houston Electric has a team of the most customer focused electrical contractors in Arkansas , and when you need to find a great electrician in Little Rock, we’re always a phone call away! In addition to our full range of quality electrical services, we also offer energy efficiency consulting services. Here are just a few easy ways to reduce your home’s energy consumption:

Storm Windows-Most new homes are built with energy efficient windows and doors, and there are often tax incentives and rebates available to homeowners looking to make an upgrade. If you can’t buy storm windows right away, inexpensive weather stripping around windows and under doors can also make a difference.

Programmable thermostats-Today’s programmable thermostats have more features than ever before, but they all offer the basic function of raising or lowering temperatures at scheduled intervals. Some thermostats are also motion activated, and many can be programmed remotely by a smart phone app.

LED Lighting-If you haven’t already installed LED lighting, what’s stopping you? It’s getting harder and harder to find traditional incandescent bulbs in the stores, and for good reason. LED bulbs last for up to five years, offer the same amount of light for a fraction of the energy, and their prices are continuing to drop. Once you make the switch, you’ll never want to turn back!

If you have any questions about energy efficiency, or would like to schedule a consultation, contact us online or give us a call at 501-375-8330.
