Has your electric bill risen tremendously over the past year? If that’s the case, then it’s probably due to an excessive amount of power being used in your home — but how is that possible? Believe it or not, it’s simple to waste electricity without even realizing it. Not sure where to cut back? Here are a few tips to know:
Dim the Lights
Do you tend to leave the lights on in your home, especially in rooms that aren’t in use? If that’s the case, then you’re running up your electric bill to new heights. Sure, it might seem harmless — but think about the amount of money you could be saving, each month, if you were to turn those lights off.
The best solution to this problem is to try and only use the lights in rooms that you’re actually in. This will not only help keep your electric bill down, but it will also help lessen your carbon footprint, too.
Unplug Unesccary Electronics
Oh, you know exactly what we’re talking about. Sometimes, it can be tempting to keep a slew of objects around your home and business plugged, even if they haven’t been used in quite some time. This is one of the most significant ways that electricity is wasted on an annual basis.
To make a conscious effort to save energy, it’s best to unplug everything from the wall that’s not in use — especially before you go away on vacation. This will definitely be a wise move since it will eliminate any potential of additional energy from going to waste.
Are you still using incandescent bulbs in your home? Well, if that’s the case, then you’re also using an excessive amount of electric. Since these types of light bulbs aren’t manufactured to be eco-friendly, they do happen to use up a large amount of power just to light up your space.
Of course, the best way to combat this problem is to invest in some LED light bulbs. Not only are these as inexpensive as incandescent bulbs, but they’ll be able to shine even brighter in your space for a fraction of the cost and power. It’s definitely a wise investment for anyone looking to cut back on power consumption.
