Save by Implementing these Cost Cutting Tips

Reducing the amount of electricity that we use in the home is very important. It not only helps the environment, but it also reduces the amount that you pay each month for your home’s electricity. There are many ways that you can reduce the expenditure of energy in your home. Here are some of our favorite tips to ensure a reduction in energy consumption:

  • Add compact fluorescent bulbs throughout your home
  • Use cold water when washing clothes
  • Switch to a lower wattage desk lamp
  • Unplug unused items throughout your home
  • Switch your computers to turn to standby mode when not in use
  • Make sure your refrigerator temperature is set to roughly 40°F

Another idea you will want to look into is to research time of use programs at your local electric company. These programs may be a great way for you to save money on electric use, depending on when you use the majority of your power. Time of use programs charge you differently for peak hours and off hours. If you use the majority of your electricity during off hours, you can save a significant amount of money.
