How to Reduce Energy Costs and Lower Your Electricity Bill
Reducing Energy Costs in Your Home
Electricity bills can be very expensive. In the summer we need to use the air conditioning, and In the winter we need heating. On top of that, all year round we require the use of the lights, tv, computer, and many other appliances. However, by learning to change our regular habits and by making some simple adjustments, we can reduce our energy consumption, and therefore save lots of money on future electricity bills.
1 Turn Off Unused LightsThis is one of the most basic ways to reduce energy usage and lower the power bill. When you're leaving a room, turn off the lights and ceiling fans. Only have the lights turned on when they are actually needed.
If you have an outdoor light, then consider using a motion detector so that the light does not need to be left on all the time.
2 Turn Off Unused AppliancesThere is no need to have your TV and computer on when they're not being used. Having a computer running 24/7 can easily add $200 to your power bill every year.
Appliances use electricity when idle, so unplug them. Even small items like phone chargers, coffee machine, toasters, etc. that are not in use. You're wasting energy just by using the plug sockets.
