The following are some simple resolutions you can use to reduce your electric
bill this month, and perhaps this year:
Conduct evening inspections – Shut off any unattended lighting, crank down heat or cooling systems
and unplug any unused electronics every night. Most homes continue to
exert unnecessary energy, resulting in high energy bills every month.
Stop leeching – When appliances continue to use a slight measure of electricity,
despite being turned off, it is considered “leeching.” These
include television sets, portable heaters and phone chargers. Please unplug
if not in use.
Keep doors closed – The majority of the energy in homes and businesses being used derives
from heating and cooling systems. By closing doors to unvented rooms,
utility rooms, storage and closets, you can prevent those systems from
working overtime to heat or cool those areas.
Use energy-efficient lighting – Make the transition from incandescent bulbs to LED, since the
latter requires less energy to produce light.
Update your home – If you want to spend money to save money, replacing outdated appliances
such as refrigerators and HVAC systems can reduce your energy bills for
years to come.
