How To Save Money on Your Electric Bill: 25+ Tips to Save

One of the best places to save money is our very own home.

In today’s technology-driven world, more and more of our stuff requires electricity to function, so learning how to save money on your electric bill should be one of the top ways to save money at home. Here are some ideas for lowering your electric bill.

1. Use LED Bulbs

Not all light bulbs are created equal when it comes to energy efficiency. However, LED bulbs use less energy and last longer, saving you money on multiple fronts.

2. Take Shorter, Colder Showers

Hot water costs money, so the less you use it, the better. Taking a colder shower or, I guess, just a less hot shower and shaving a few minutes off your time can save gallons of hot water which is money right back into your pocket.

3. Unplug Small Appliances

Similar to turning off lights not in use, unplug small appliances to save some electricity as well. Even when our devices are off, they use small amounts of power when they are plugged in. Toasters, phones, tablets, coffee makers, laptops can all be unplugged when not in use to help lower that bill.

4. Light Blocking Shades in Summer

Using light-blocking shades can help keep your bedrooms at a more comfortable temperature in the summer without using your AC units. If you have central air conditioning, having light-blocking shades in other rooms, especially if the thermostat is in it, can also help keep the whole house a bit cooler.

5. Don’t Leave the Door Open

There are many reasons that a door to the outside world might be left open, and it really does let out heat and cool air. So make sure doors are not left open for extended periods of time.
