Preparing Your Home For Spring
It’s natural to notice drafts and other home efficiency issues during peak winter or summer with temperature extremes and the corresponding energy bill spikes. As the weather starts to turn warmer and sunnier, taking a little time to assess your home’s readiness for spring and the coming heat of summer can go a long way to making your home more efficient, comfortable, and safe.
Managing Vampire Energy
Vampire energy is energy used by appliances and electronics even when they are turned off, or fully charged, but still plugged in. Many of us are unaware of this wasted energy that can account for up to 20% of your monthly electric bill. Where is this vampire energy coming from and how can you slay it to reduce your bill?
CHPs mission is to create homes and communities that are healthy, sustainable, and affordable. Part of this vision is giving all of our clients — residents of CHP properties, homeowners and renters — the resources and information they need to understand their homes energy use and how to best manage it for comfort, health and energy cost effectiveness.
