Save money on your bills - Energy-saving tips

Saving money on energy is very important if you want to keep costs low. There are many different things to keep in mind, but even simple changes can make a difference. Here are some ways to save money on energy.


Turn your lights off when you’re not using them


Keeping the lights on can be more costly than you think. This is a good place to start when it comes to reducing your energy costs. You can switch to LED lighting, or turn them off when you are not in the room. Some states currently have Energy Savings Scheme’s which allow you to have your home lighting upgraded at a very low cost


Using natural light


Instead of just keeping the lights on, you are better off using natural light. Try to bring in as much natural light as possible within your home by opening curtains and blinds. You can also use task lighting, which means turning off the ceiling lights and using a table lamp or track lighting.


Switch electronics off at the wall when you’re not using them


Most Electricians will recommend switching electronics off at the wall when you’re not using them. Electronics on standby can still use quite a bit of power. That’s why switching them off at the wall is a good practice to get into.


Smart Switches


Smart Home capabilities have become very accessible over the past 5 years with a lot of new products entering the market. Smart home products can be installed in the home very easily and allow you to switch lights and power outlets off via an app on your smart phone with some products measuring how much power your appliances have been using.


Turn off the AC when it’s not needed


The AC is known to require a lot of electrical power. So, if you don’t need to use it or the temperatures are ok outside, just bring natural air inside and turn off the AC. Using the AC too much can lead to tons of power being misused. Fresh, natural air is always best where possible.


Recycle the old TV and buy a new one


Older TVs are not really power efficient. If you have an old tv, it might be time for an upgrade. Go for a newer, energy-efficient model and sell or give your old tv away. It will help save a lot of money, not to mention you will have a better viewing experience.

Upgrading your electrical system can also help save money on bills. Work with a trusted, local Electrician to ensure that your home gets the right upgrade to save power and money.


Implementing the tips above can result in huge savings on your energy bills.
