Easy Tips to Save Money on Your Electric Bill

Easy Tips to Save Money on Your Electric BillEveryone wants to save a buck or two when they can right? Well, imagine making a few small changes and then saving hundreds of dollars a year on your utility bills! By using the following money saving tips you'll see your monthly electric bill dip. If you have any questions about these tactics or if you need assistance to implement them, be sure to reach out to your local electrician.

LED Light Bulbs

LED light bulbs are well known to help lower the cost of lowering your home. The price of LED lighting is continually falling as well, which is a double win! Additionally, they can last a decade or more!

Wash on Cold

If possible, wash clothes with cold water, as this takes much less energy than washing in warm water.

Smart Thermostat Usage

If you can stand to raise your thermostat a few degrees in the summer and lower it a couple in the winter, you can save quite a bit of money on heating and cooling costs.

Lower Hot Water Heater Temperature

If your home uses an electric hot water heater try lowering the heating temperature to less than 120 degrees.

Air Dry Clothes (or Use Dryer Balls)

When the weather is nice you can air dry your clothes. Another idea is to use dryer balls in the dryer, as this can significantly quicken drying times.

Install Ceiling Fans

A ceiling fan in each room may seem like a big investment, and it can be, but if you plan on staying in your home for the long run, this is a method that will help circulate air all year long. This means the fans will work in only the rooms you're in to keep them cool in summer and warm in winter.

Unplug When Unused

If you have appliances and accessories, such as coffee pots, hair dryers, and computer and cell phone chargers that stay plugged in all the time, it's time to unplug. Even if an item is turned off, it is still pulling electricity when it is plugged in.
