Solar panels get their free energy from the sun, but they can lose a lot of capacity if they are not cleaned regularly. Depending on where you live and other variable conditions, you may need to clean your panels once a month. A dirty panel can reduce the efficiency of your entire array by as much as 30%. Because panels are sometimes hard to reach, you may want to consider investing in a cleaning system like Extentool 's Solar Cleaning Kit, which allows you to reach and clean hard-to-reach panels.

2. Heating Systems

New energy-efficient heating systems will give you only a fraction of the best efficiency. You should make sure to clean your HVAC filters and vents before the annual heating season begins, because if there are any clogs, you'll see an immediate loss of efficiency.


Another aspect of heating efficiency has nothing to do with your heating system. According to the U.S. Department of Energy's ENERGY STAR program, making sure your home is properly sealed and insulated can save up to 20% on energy costs.


3. Lights

Switching to energy-efficient LEDs is an inexpensive way to reduce your home's energy consumption. Residential LEDs, especially Energy Star rated products, use at least 75% less energy and last 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs.


4. Water Heaters

No matter how big your home or your family is, you can easily increase the efficiency of your water heater by turning the unit down to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Lower temperatures mean that the water heater is not working as hard and your water will still be hot enough to shower or wash dishes.


You may also want to consider a tankless water heater, which only heats water when it's needed. These systems also take up less space in your utility room by running cold water through the heating coils before it reaches the sink or shower through the pipes.


If you've taken steps to improve energy efficiency, you understand the benefits. By making your current system more efficient and economical, you can see the greater rewards of going green.
