11 Easy Methods On How You Can Save Money On Your Appliance Bills

 

  1. Since it’s cold out now, you are definitely starting to use the heater more often. The mistake that people make is they jack up the heater when it gets cold which is extremely costly. Surprisingly, if you keep your thermostat at a constant temperature that isn’t too low, it conserves more energy.

  2. Replace regular light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs. It is economical to replace a light bulb if it burns for more than half an hour a day.

  3. Unplug outlets that are not being used. You may think that since the switch is not on, it doesn’t consume any energy, but surprisingly it does.

  4. Optimize the energy consumption of your PC. Modern PCs can be set up to enter energy saving modes from both the BIOS settings page and directly from the Windows Operating system. Enable "Sleep" and "Hybrid Sleep" for desktops and "Hibernation" for notebook PCs running Windows.

  5. Install and use dimmer switches at less than full brightness for incandescent lamps and other types (CFL, LED, etc.) that are specifically labeled as suitable for use with a dimmer.

  6. Defrost the freezer if there's a layer of ice.

  7. Paint your rooms in a bright color. More light is reflected by brighter walls and so you need less light to make your room bright.

  8. Boil water with an electric kettle instead of the stove

  9. Avoid the clothes dryer. Dry your wet clothes on a laundry line if possible.

  10. Seal your windows. You can either use caulk or tape it up. This allows for wind to stay out and warmth to be concealed in. When it’s time to remove the caulk, you may simply take a razer and gently peel it off.

  11. And the most obvious one is Turn off the lights and other household appliances like TV's and computers when not being used.
