Some Simple Energy Saving Tips

Here at Realty World Wichita we are environmentally conscious. We know that the seasonal temperature changes in Wichita Kansas can be extreme at times. There are many simple and cost efficient ways to save energy and money.

Through diligent research and development, home-building technology in real estate is continually changing and improving. But home owners can increase the comfort of their home while reducing their heating and cooling needs by investing in proper insulation and sealing air leaks.

If you have an older home consider adding insulation. Only 20% of homes built before 1980 are well insulated.

Heating and Cooling Tips

  • Keep thermostats only as low/high as is comfortable for the season.
  • Replace filters often.
  • Keep air registers clear and clean. Make sure they are not blocked by furniture, carpeting, or drapes.
  • Turn off kitchen, bath and other exhaust fans within 20 minutes.
  • Keep draperies and shades on south-facing windows open/closed to maintain constant temperature
  • Take shorter showers
  • Add weather seals under doors and insulating film to windows.
