3 Ideas for Making Your Cabin More Energy Efficient

Are you looking for new ways to reduce your carbon footprint? Maybe you’re just hoping to lower your electric bill. Whatever your reason for making your Northern Wisconsin cabin more energy efficient, we’ve got some tips for you.

Buy the Right Appliances

Energy Star-certified appliances are more energy efficient and reduce usage helping you save on heating, water, and electric bills. So ditch your old refrigerator and head to your nearest appliance store to make the upgrade! 

Switch Out Drafty Windows

Older, drafty windows can severely impact your heating and cooling bill as they let in unwelcome cold or hot air. Modern windows are much more energy efficient with stronger seals and energy-efficient glass that help to regulate the indoor temperature. If you can’t afford new windows, look into having them resealed or sealing them yourself.

Try Energy-Efficient Lighting

Lighting accounts for roughly 15% of your energy bill per year. Switching your bulbs over to LEDs can greatly reduce cost and energy output. The cost of these bulbs has greatly declined over the years saving you money on every end of the switch.
