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. Below are some ideas for lowering your electric bill.
Change the Temp
One of the most obvious and easiest ways to lower your electric bill is to change your home’s temperature. Even adjusting by a degree or two can have a significant impact on your energy use.
Dress for Success
If you want to go all-in on the temperature change, simply dressing better can help. Layer up in the winter, and you won’t have to heat your house as much. But, admittedly, you can’t exactly walk around in your birthday suit in summer, so this is mainly a winter solution.
Open a Window
It doesn’t sound like much of a tip, but we often leave our cooling in the summer on cruise control. However, there are many times that the summer heat lets up, and it’s rather nice outside. So turn off the AC and open a window to get some cool fresh air into your home, even it’s just at night when the temp has cooled a bit.
Turn off the Lights
Another “tip” that isn’t really a tip here. Turning off the lights sounds simple enough, but how often have you walked around your home and found basically everything is still on.
Lower Temperature on Your Hot Water Heater
Did you know that you can set how hot your water gets? For starters, make sure it’s not about 120 degrees Fahrenheit to avoid getting scalded. Then, you can continue to lower it just a few degrees to save a bit more on that electricity bill.
Wash Laundry in Cold Water
Many clothes and laundry detergents are designed to work with water of any temperature these days. Try using cold for your next laundry day and watch your high electric bills wash away.
