We do a lot in our home. Whether it’s a rented apartment or a two-story house, the walls in which we reside are a part of our life. I know the home which we currently live has seen us off on family vacations as well as welcomed my daughter home from the hospital. There’s been sleepless nights, cries, tantrums, many birthdays, first days of school, and all of our holidays among many other events. It’s also where we feel safe and protected and can finally relax at the end of a long day. As such, it only makes sense to make sure our home is running as smoothly as possible, and saving us as much money as it can for future family excursions, which is easy to do by answering a few simple questions on the Homeselfe app.
Homeselfe is like a selfie for your home. It’s an easy to use and free app that helps make your home more energy efficient. Just by answering an easy-to-follow questionnaire about the different rooms in your home, you’ll instantly receive 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.
Where a normal energy audit done professionally can cost a few hundred dollars, it cost me nothing and took less than 10 minutes to complete our HomeSelfe. Our overall rating was Average. It turns out we’re doing better in more areas than I anticipated. It was also good to hear how we could do better, though.
For instance, we’re doing good with lighting, as we use mainly CFL bulbs and CFL bulbs use up to 75% less energy than traditional bulbs. Our appliances and wall insulation are also on track. The water heater could use an upgrade, though, and our home could really use some new windows and doors. Our duct system could also be improved, too. According to the app, the typical home loses 20-40% of the air that moves through a home’s duct system. That’s like money literally flying through the air!
As you can see, there’s big savings just by making a few changes. Money much better spent on more family vacations and making more memories. Are you ready to take a HomeSelfe? Download the free app now!
