3 Quick & Easy Ways To Lower Your Energy Bill
Did you know: the average American family spends approximately $2,200 per year on electrical costs? Did you also know: quick and easy alternatives are available and provide almost immediate savings? Here are a few ideas on improving the efficiency of your home while lowering your next electric bill:
1. Upgrade your washer and dryer
Newer, more energy-efficient washer and dryers have been designed to use just a small fraction of the energy older models consume. In fact, the savings from replacing older washer and dryer models has the potential to pay for upgraded machines in just a few years!
2. Use wall outlet timers to control lights and fans
Leaving a light or fan on when you’re not in a room can add up. Inexpensive wall outlet timers can be used to manage this common problem, automatically shutting off energy-hogging devices at specific times throughout the day.
3. Replace old kitchen appliances
Thirteen percent of your homes energy consumption comes from appliances. Like newer washer and dryers, standard kitchen appliances, such as stoves, ovens, refrigerators and dishwashers, have been created more efficiently. Investing in new technology can not only keep your home cool, but your wallet full, as well.
