Want to save the environment and your wallet at the same time? There are many things we can do in our everyday lives to put those words into action. By walking through the basics of energy usage, systems and appliances, and the benefits of reusable energy, you’ll be able to identify small factors that can yield huge advantages. Here are the 3 things all homeowners can do to lower their energy bills and even raise their quality of life.
You’d be surprised by how much electricity you save just by simply turning off lights when they are not in use. Often called energy vampires, any lights, devices and other appliances that are left plugged in will typically cost families about $100 a year. A simple solution would be to turn off any power strips and switches when not in use. Another way to exercise electricity mindfulness is thinking about peak usage hours. When everybody in the area uses electricity during the daytime, more strain is put on the utility system. So, wash your clothes, run your dishwasher, and use other appliances at night (or overnight, if you’re up) to help conserve energy.
Inspect & Improve
If you’ve ever noticed inefficiency in your HVAC Systems, your energy and expenses may be increasing more than you think. Things like mechanical wear and tear, dirty filters and water leaks are all connected to energy usage; if not taken care of properly, these small issues could develop into much bigger concerns. So be sure to contact a HVAC professional for a system audit to make sure you’re making the most of what you have! Once your system has been thoroughly checked by a professional, only then will you need to start thinking about having any hvac repair work completed, so that your bills are greatly reduced as well as being ready to cope with the ever-changing weather. Did you know that you can also make a start on these checks yourself? Inspect your systems and appliances to make necessary improvements. Don’t just leave the inspections to your systems and appliances either, start inspecting your monthly bills and take note of price hikes compared to usage etc. Once you have collected enough data to make an informed decision, you’ll want to look into other energy companies such as Hello Energy and others to compare your monthly bill to their offered plans.
