Energy Prices Are on the Rise.

Here’s How To Lower Your Electric Bill

Lowering your energy consumption is a great way to decrease your power bill and save money. It is also a great way to help with the fight against the pollution that is killing our planet.

If you are frugal like me, then you are constantly looking for ways to save money. One way to save money is to lower your bills every month- like your electric bill!

Do you have your mobile devices constantly charging? When not in use, unplug them. Small amounts of energy still trickle through the charger, which causes a drain on your bill.

Turn Everything Off

Obviously, you can’t go out and buy all new appliances, but when it comes time to replace your existing appliances, look for big appliances that are energy-smart and have a good sleep or energy-saving modes.

Buy Energy-smart Appliances

You can do this by getting rid of some appliances that you rarely use (think microwave or blender) or by replacing them with an electric-free version.

Use Less Appliances

When shopping, try to buy energy-smart items. Appliances, outlets, power cords, and light bulbs all come in a “smart” form. They all help save electricity in their own ways.

Shop Smart

One setting that you need to turn off is the sleep mode feature. Sleep mode allows the TV to turn on faster but keeps the unit on all the time.

Adjust Your TV Settings

Large amounts can save electricity if you turn the temperature dial. If you have your house warm in the winter, turn it down a few degrees. If you get chilly, put on a sweater.
