Electricity prices increase annually for most areas.
Here are some tips to help you save money on your bill while saving energy too!
Ensure lights and electronics are turned off or unplugged when not in use. Consider plugging all devices into a power bar for easy “turn off” access.
Keeping your blinds closed will help keep your space cool in the summer, and warm in the winter. Did you know that window coverings can save you up to 15% on your energy bills in the winter?
Keep your fridge clutter free! Keeping coils clean can help with air circulation and help your fridge to run more efficiently. Refrigerators use approximately 11% of a household’s total energy consumption.
Adjust your thermostat by 10 to 15 degrees when you’re not home, or during the day. This can save you up to 15% on your heating bills.
Use a humidifier to help lower your heat. Keeping humidity levels up during the winter is good for your health, and it helps keep the ambient air temperature feeling warmer…so you can turn down the thermostat!
Consider purchasing LED light bulbs. Although more expensive, they are long lasting, durable, run cool, mercury free, more energy efficient and cost effective!
