Use Daylight Saving Time to spring forward with home energy savings
PSE’s five tips for your upcoming spring home improvement projects
BELLEVUE, Wash. (3/10/2022) Daylight Saving starts on Sunday, March 13, bringing the promise of sunshine, flowers, and the most popular time of year for home improvement projects. Puget Sound Energy (PSE) wants to remind customers that it has energy saving rebates that can help keep project costs low, reduce your carbon footprint, and even lower your energy bills.
From home improvement to spring cleaning, PSE recommends these energy saving tips for projects both big and small:
- Clear the way for efficient heating and cooling.
Spring is a great time to clean heating return registers and replace furnace filters. Looking to upgrade your heating system? Ductless heat pumps come standard with heating and cooling! Whether you need help deciding which equipment works for your home or are considering specific options, PSE offers rebates on a variety of home heating equipment.
- Take advantage of the latest home technology.
Devices like smart thermostats allow you to control and keep tabs on home heating usage from anywhere – and this year you can also take advantage of a $75 rebate on select models on the PSE Marketplace.
- Receive a $500 instant discount on electric hybrid heat pump water heaters.
Heating water is the second-highest use of energy in your home. We’re making it easy to buy efficient heat pump water heaters at participating Lowe’s and Home Depot locations.
- Seal in the savings with home weatherization and insulation.
Proper insulation can help keep cool air in and summer heat out. You can also lower your energy bill by preventing heating or cooling loss through unseen leaks and seams with air sealing. Bundle and save with a bonus rebate up to $400 when you combine multiple weatherization rebates in one project.
- Make an energy saving plan.
The more you know, the more you can save. Understanding how much energy your home uses and assessing your home’s efficiency is the first step in staying comfortable year-round. Update your home’s profile in your pse.com account, and use the Analyze My Usage tool to get customized energy saving tips and make an energy savings plan for your household.
