Here are some tips to help you save money on your electricity bill this new year!
Switch Off Lights and Electronics When Not In Use
When moving from room to room, turn off all lights and electronic devices, such as televisions and computers, so they don’t unnecessarily consume energy. In addition, be sure to unplug all cell phones, laptops, and tablet chargers when not in use; this can help save energy!
Use Energy-Efficient Lighting
Investing in LED or CFL bulbs can help reduce your electricity bill, as they use much less energy than incandescent lights.
Install A Smart Thermostat
A programmable thermostat allows you to set different temperatures for different times of the day, so you don’t have to manually adjust your air conditioning or heating when you’re away from home.
Use Energy-Efficient Appliances
When shopping for appliances, look for Energy Star-certified products designed to save energy over their lifetime. Energy Star-certified products can significantly affect how much electricity you use regularly.
Reduce Water Heater Usage
