Electrical bills are every homeowner’s most common concern – did you really use that much electricity this month? Are there easy ways to use less electricity each month? The team at Neighborhood Electric has found many ways over the years to help you reduce your electrical consumption, and here’s what we found has been proven to work…
Before you buy any kind of electrical appliance for your home, make sure you know what its Energy Star rating is. This is important if you are replacing electrical appliances that used to consume so much energy – like your old fridge or air conditioning unit. When it comes to understanding the Energy Star rating system, the high the rating, the better your savings are going to be. You’ll want to choose appliances with a high Energy Star rating, and the savings you will see each month will be just as high!
The biggest piece of advice the team at Neighborhood Electric can give you is to switch all of your switches to dimmer switches or install dimmer switches. If your home doesn’t get much natural light, you’ll be using your lighting fixtures much more often. This can lead to spending hundreds of dollars each month. Dimmer switches allow you to control how much light you use in a given day and how much energy your light bulbs use every time you turn them on. This is a great option if you are looking to save each month.
Did you know that most new air conditioners come with a timer function? If yours has one, use it! Set your timer to shut off when it reaches a certain temperature or time – your room will always be nice and cool, while your pockets will be much happier with all the money you will save.
Believe it or not, washing your clothes with cold water can save you so much money each month. Why is this? Since your water doesn’t need to run through your water heater to get warmed, you will be saving so much in energy consumption by using only cold water. It may seem like a small change, but the savings will be huge!
