Five Ways to Save Money On Your Electric Bill

Everyone wants to save money on household expenses. This guide will help you increase your home’s energy efficiency.

1. Insulating your home can reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 10% by sealing cracks, gaps and leaks

It is possible to stop the air from entering your home or escaping from outside. You will need to turn up the heat during winter to keep a room warm, and vice versa in summer when you want a room that stays hot. Your windows may be allowing air in through cracks or holes in your seals. This should be addressed immediately!

2. In these hot months, keep your blinds, shades and drapes closed on the sunny side of your house.

This will help you keep your home cool and less strain your AC. It is one of the least expensive ways to save energy during the hot summer months.

3. When possible, use natural light.

It’s free. If you prefer, you don’t even have to open your home to the outside light. Instead, you can switch to LED light bulbs. While LEDs can be expensive initially, they are generally the most affordable over time. They also provide better illumination than other light bulbs.

4. Programmable thermostats can be installed or programmed to adjust the temperature according to your schedule.

It’s not a good idea to turn the thermostat up or down when you get back from work. It is best to adjust the temperature while you are away and then gradually lower or raise it when you return. Your air conditioner should be running properly and recently inspected to keep it as efficient as possible. We can assist you with any maintenance, repair, or replacement needs.

When you leave the room, flip the switch. The lights account for around 12% of your total home energy bill.
