Execute Your Electric Bill Reduction Project Plan
First, selected a course of action in your electric bill reduction project. Next, partner with a qualified installation contractor. The contractor actually performs the work for you. Additionally, during the evaluation process keep on eye on the ultimate goal of reducing electric bills, which works best as a partnership between homeowners and contractors. For example, homeowners frequently handle simpler tasks such as lighting efficiency upgrades, appliance replacements and turning things off. Conversely, contractors handle more difficult energy saving measures such as high-efficiency air conditioning, air sealing of your home or adding insulation.
Finally, selecting a qualified contractor remains challenging. Simply selecting the low-bid contractor isn’t always the wisest decision. For example, factors include:
- How experienced is the contractor (how long have they been in business and how many similar projects have they done)?
- Are they licensed?
- Is the contractor Insured?
- Do they have any certifications or accreditations?
- Did they share referrals or testimonials with you?
- What is their Better Business Rating?
- What is their responsiveness to phone calls?
