There are several ways you can reduce the costs associated with your electric bill. A large portion of your monthly utility bill is based on your heating and cooling usage. You can save money on your utility bill by merely lowering or raising the temperature on your thermostat by a few degrees, depending on the season. If it’s a cool day, consider turning your thermostat off and opening a window. Limiting the amount of time your AC is running is one of the quickest ways to dramatically reduce your electricity usage. This dramatically cuts the cost of your electricity bill.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 5% of the average American household’s energy consumption is lighting. By switching over to LED lights, you’ll use substantially less energy than you would with a standard light bulb. Some LED light bulbs can last over 10 years. This not only saves you money on light bulbs, but it also saves you money on your electricity bill.
Even with the most energy-efficient light bulbs, nothing cuts costs like simply turning off lights/electronics in rooms when you’re not using them. When you’re not actively in a room, be sure to turn off the lights, fan, and any electronics that might be on. We even encourage you to unplug devices from the wall as some devices still use power when they’re turned off.
