Massachusetts residents are no strangers to expensive energy costs, especially during colder months.
A recent report by Move.org shows Massachusetts residents on average pay the eighth-highest utility costs in the country — $469 per month — and the fourth highest in New England.
What some residents don’t know, however, is that there are several ways to make changes — big and small — around any home or apartment that could help lower those costs.
“Becoming more energy efficient is the single-most important step a homeowner or renter can take to gain control of their energy use and energy costs,” said Bill Stack, energy efficiency manager for Eversource, one of the state’s largest utility companies.
The following tips come from energy organizations and professionals, who say following them could go a long way toward helping residents — on any budget –reduce energy costs.
Schedule an energy audit
Unless energy efficiency is your field of expertise, scheduling an energy audit is an easy way to start.
