7 ways to make your home more energy efficient
Improve your home's energy efficiency with insulation and ventilation
There are many things you can do to make your home more energy-efficient. But, why improve your home's energy efficiency?
By improving your home's energy efficiency, you:
What can you do to improve your home's energy efficiency?
1. Insulate your home
Insulating your home properly can make you save on your energy bills. Check your home's insulation, especially in the attic, walls, and floors. Magnovent’s thermal insulators assist in keeping up to 60% extra heat inside during cold weather and cool air inside during hot weather. Plus, these can also be used in your vehicle windows.
2. Seal air leaks
Air leaks can waste a lot of energy. Check for air leaks around windows, doors, and electrical outlets, and seal them with caulking or weatherstripping.

3. Upgrade your windows
If your windows are old and drafty, consider upgrading to energy-efficient windows. They can help keep your home more comfortable and save you money on your energy bills.
4. Optimise your HVAC system
In the summer, Magnovent’s low consumption modern ceiling fans create a breeze that feels up to 6ºC cooler on the skin and reduces or completely eliminates the need for AC. In the winter, domestic ceiling fans avoid heat loss on the top air coats by mixing the air and reducing the need for excessive heating. All our fans come with remote control and are compatible with Alexa and Google Home.
5. Install a programmable thermostat
A programmable thermostat can save you up to 10% on your energy bills. It allows you to set different temperatures for different times of the day, so you can adjust your heating and cooling to your schedule.
6. Upgrade to energy-efficient appliances
Look for appliances with the Energy Star label such as Magnovent's award-winning Aeratron, our most silent and efficient fan that earned the ENERGY STAR Most Efficient label. ENERGY STAR Most Efficient appliances deliver cutting edge energy efficiency along with the latest in technological innovation. They represent the year's very best for energy savings and environmental protection.
7. Choose an energy-efficient heating solution
Radiant heating is one of the most durable and energy efficient options because it distributes heat more evenly using very little electricity to do so. These easy-to-install systems are extremely clean and safe too, as they don't distribute allergens like forced air systems can.
8. Use energy-efficient lighting
Switch to LED or CFL light bulbs. They use less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs and last longer.
