It’s easy to save money on your electric bill. Here are some energy-saving steps that we recommend:
1. Switch To Energy Star Appliances:
There are many types of energy star appliances available. Some examples of them are lights, washers and dryers, refrigerators, and dishwashers. Energy star is one of the most famous brands of green appliances.
2.Use Windows To Reduce Heating And Cooling Costs:
Blinds on south-facing windows should remain open during winter days. The blinds on north-facing windows should stay closed. Blinds of east facing windows should be open in the morning, and they should be closed in the afternoon. The blinds on west-facing windows should be closed in the morning and opened during the afternoon. All blinds should be closed on winter nights.
All blinds should remain closed during the day. Blinds and windows should be opened on summer nights.
3. Install Solar Panels:
You don’t have to install enough solar panels to power your whole house. In addition, solar panels are more affordable to install than many people expect. If you decide to install enough solar panels to generate more electricity than you need, you can sell some of the power back to the grid. This can be profitable for some households.
4. Stop Using Electric Heat:
While oil and gas heat requires electricity, it doesn’t need anywhere near as much electricity as electric heat. Making the switch to propane or natural gas heat is good for your wallet and the environment.
5. Put Computers In Sleep Mode When You Aren’t Using Them:
Leaving a computer on all the time uses much more electricity than you’d think. Putting your computer in sleep mode when you aren’t using it can save 10 to 50 dollars per year.
We hope some of these methods will assist you with saving energy at home and maybe cutting some electricity bills down a bit. Electro Industries specializes in power meters and smart grid solutions that excel at revenue grade energy measurement, power quality and advanced telemetry.
