Ways to Save on Your Energy Bill

Heat is not the only thing that rises during the summer, our electric bill goes through the roof with it. Especially with most of us working from home now, we have been using more appliances than usual and for longer periods. Hence, apart from beating the heat, we also need to find ways to beat the ever-increasing electric bills. Lucky for you, we have some easy tips to help save money and the planet at the same time.


Use Energy Star Appliances

 According to research, an average household spends about $2000 on energy bills annually. Energy star appliances can help cut down these costs by 30%. Switching to energy efficient appliances not only gives you an excuse to get rid of your old appliances, and helps you save money in the long run, they also help in reducing the emission of greenhouse gases, which helps in reducing global warming.


Unplug Unused Appliances

The appliances that are not being used but are still plugged into the power sockets use electricity as well. Standby power can account for 10% of the electricity used by an average household in a year. Make sure to unplug the devices not being used, like a coffee maker when you step out of the house in the morning.


Try doing Laundry/Dishwashing during the Night

 If possible, try doing your laundry or using your dishwasher at night, after the peak hours. This will not only help reduce the environmental impact but also help in avoiding the higher utility rates during the peak hours.


Use more Natural Light

 Try to make the most of the best energy source, especially since it is the cheapest option as well, the Sun. A single south-facing window can light up about 20 to 100 times its area.


Wash your Clothes with Colder Water

 Hot water is not necessarily needed for clean laundry and heating the water uses a high proportion of the energy used to power your washing machine. Especially when you are not dealing with really bad stains or oily residues, switching to cold water for washing your clothes will help make a big difference to your electric costs.


Avoid opening your oven again and again

 We know how difficult it is to patiently wait for your food in the oven to get ready. But try using the oven window and light to check up on your food, instead of opening the door every few minutes. Every time you open the oven, it can drop the temperature inside it by 25 degrees and hence, the food will take longer to cook. The more time it takes for your food to cook, the longer your oven will run and thus, the more electricity it will consume.


Try implementing these steps, notice how significantly your electric costs will reduce over the time, be proud of the fact that you will also be helping the environment, and thank us later. Ciao!
