“Making simple adjustments to daily habits, like turning off the lights or switching to LED can really add up the savings.”
LAS VEGAS (PRWEB) January 17, 2019
According to the U.S. Energy Administration Information, “In 2017, the average annual electricity consumption for a U.S. residential utility customer was 10,399 kilowatt-hours (kWh), an average of 867 kWh per month.” Inspecting insulation and switching to LED lighting are just a few ways homeowners can cut down their utility bills.
To help homeowners save on their electricity bills, Blue Apple Electric offers the following suggestions:
1. Turn Off Lights When Not in Use
If you are leaving a room or have more lights turned on than you need, just get in the habit of switching them off when you don’t need them. You can also utilize natural light during the daytime. Open up those blinds and curtains and let the natural light in to save more energy.
2. Convert to LED Lights
LED lights consume a lot less energy than traditional incandescent or fluorescent bulbs. They also last a lot longer on average. Make the switch to save more on your electric bills.
3. Buy Energy-Efficient Appliances
Look for ENERGY STAR ratings on appliances to minimize the amount of electricity needed to run them. Some energy-efficient appliances and light fixtures may also be eligible for rebates or tax credits.
4. Unplug Unused Electronics
Anything that’s plugged in (even when it’s not in use) will draw some amount of standby power from the outlet. Unplugging electronics that you are not using can add up to long-term savings.
5. Use Your Laptop
Laptop computers and tablets consume a lot less electricity than desktop computers. Turn off the desktop if you don’t need it and opt to use your laptop, phone or tablet more often.
6. Cut Back on Unnecessary Cycles
Simple things like air-drying your clothes, turning off the heat-dry setting of your dishwasher, washing your clothes in cold water and maintaining proper temperature in your refrigerator/freezer can definitely help you save more energy.
