North Jersey Home Office Costs - How To Keep Them Low
Here are a few tips from the Alliance to Save Energy:
Stay warm or cool — not hot or chilly. Exercise moderation when it comes to regulating temperature; your body can get used to almost anything! And, while working in your home office, close off the heating/cooling vents in unoccupied rooms. Be sure to clean or replace furnace and room air conditioner air filters once a month, and give your furnace or heat pump a professional “tune-up” each year. Look for Energy Star furnaces and heat pumps.
Electronics are crafty. Even when switched off, electronics such as phones, TVs, VCRs, DVD players, or cable boxes still consume energy, to keep display clocks lit and memory chips/remote controls working. Use Energy Star-labeled electronics because they consume less energy in the “off” mode.
Refinancing your North Jersey mortgage? Consider wrapping into the loan the cost of adding on an energy-efficient home office or increasing the energy efficiency of your existing home office. The loan interest could be tax deductible.
