Top 5 Ways to Save on Your Energy Bill
Want to Save on Electricity Bills? Have you ever gotten worried about the rate at which you consume electricity or gas and gasp at the amount that you buy a month?  If you want to lower your monthly energy bill, there are some simple ways to go about it. Some might require you to fix up your apartment or house a bit, but the monthly savings will pay off!

Watch Your Air Conditioning To Save on Your Energy Bill

Don’t turn on the heat or air conditioning unless you absolutely need it. In the summer, light and heat blocking curtains can keep your living space cooler. Also, turn off or turn down the air if you’re not in the house or in a room. Why keep the air running in the living room if you’re sleeping in the bedroom? Another good alternative to air conditioning is using a fan. In the wintertime, keep the thermostat low (cue dad jokes). You really only need to heat your house to the point where the pipes don’t burst. There’s no need to crank up the thermostat to 90 degrees and sit around in a tank top all winter! Think wool.

Change Your Lightbulbs, Save on Your Energy Bill

Plus, it’s nice to not have to worry about lights going out every few months.

Insulation Can Help Save on Electricity Bills

There’s no point in buying an energy-efficient heating/cooling system if your house isn’t insulated. You may need to put some money into changing the insulation in your walls or in the attic, but more insulation means your house or apartment will stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. In spite of the upfront cost, these ideas will save you money in the long run.

Switching to Green Energy to Save on Electricity Bills

Some energy companies allow you to choose the source of your electricity. After you install solar panels or a tankless water heater, it’s a simple switch, all you need to do is fill out a form or call them on the phone. Since renewable sources of energy are basically free (solar, wind, water, etc.) you’ll be paying less each month compared to sticking with coal.

Choose Drafty windows to Save on Electricity Bills

If the coldest or hottest place in your house is by the windows, then it might be time to upgrade to more insulated ones. Drafty windows and doors waste thousands of dollars. Since cold air tends to sink down and your feet are on the ground, they’ll feel extra cold. Instead of fixing the windows and doors, the easy fix is to crank up the heat. Over time, you’ll pay way more. Save money by upgrading to higher R-rated windows. You can also buy weather strips for your door that prevent a draft.
