It is that time of year again. The holiday season is winding down and we are all preparing to usher in the new year. If you are in the habit of making New Year’s resolutions, saving money is probably one of your go tos. Electrical Pros wants to help you save money this year where your energy bill is concerned. Check out these energy-saving tips and tricks and watch your power bill shrink.
Turn Off Your Lights and Appliances
This should go without saying, but we are all guilty of doing it. Sometimes we get in a rush and completely forget about it and sometimes we just don’t think about it at all. Remind your family and friends to turn off the TV when they are finished watching and turn off the lights when they leave a room.
Use More Power Strips
Did you know that your appliances continue to use electricity even when they are turned off? One option to fix this is to unplug your appliances when they are not in use. But who has time to run around doing that? Instead, get more power strips. With power strips, you can plug multiple things in and turn them all off at once.
Invest in a Programmable Thermostat
Yes, the word invest doesn’t automatically make you think of saving money. But when it comes to programmable thermostats, that investment can save you a ton of money in the long run. Program your thermostat to use less heat or air when everyone is at school or work without you having to remember to set it every day.
Get an Electrical Inspection
Faulty wiring can cause electrical leakage, raising your energy bill. To avoid this and other costly issues, call Electrical Pros for an electrical system inspection. We can also catch safety hazards before they put your family in danger.
Keep Your Doors and Windows Closed
Do you remember your mom or dad yelling at you to close the door because they weren’t paying to heat the whole neighborhood? If your heat or air conditioning are in use you should keep your doors and windows closed so those systems can work more efficiently. On the other hand, if it is a beautiful day open them turn off the heat or A/C and open them up.
