Cut Down On Your Electric Bill

No one likes paying an expensive electricity bill, and I’m sure we’ve all wondered how to cut down on our energy usage. Here are a few tips on how to reduce your electric bill.

Look at Energy Usage

Reviewing your bill to get an estimation of where most of your electricity is being used can go a long way. This process allows you to see what you need to trim down to receive a more cost efficient bill.

Use Your Ceiling Fan

Using a ceiling fan is a cheaper alternative than always running your air conditioner. A fan circulates the air and can keep you just as cool.

Close Blinds and Curtains

Covering up those sun-beaten windows with curtains can keep your house as cool as ever. The cooler it is inside, the less work your air conditioning has to do, and the less money you spend.

Unplug Unused Electronics

Most appliances or electronics, such as a television or desktop computer, regularly operate and use power even when not in use. Unplugging these amenities when not in use is a simple task that can save your valuable money.

Wash Laundry in Cold Water

When doing your laundry, many people like to wash their clothes on the hottest setting; however, this uses a lot of energy. Try to wash your items on cold as much as possible for a little break on your electric bill.

Line Dry Laundry

Setting up a clothesline and hanging clothes can save you the time, hassle, and money it takes to do multiple loads of laundry in the dryer. This way you can save money and enjoy the outdoors!

Get a Programmable Thermostat

Obtaining a programmable thermostat can regulate the temperature whenever you best see fit. Be comfortable while at home, and make it run less when you are away.
