Electricity bills can be a huge dent in your pocket every quarter and we’re all always wondering how to reduce the bill. We’re all for finding new tips and tricks to get that bill to go down! We’ve put together ways that could make that change so you can save on your electricity bill.
Lights are always on in your home. So many of us are guilty of leaving the lights on even when we’re not in that room! One easy and practical way to save on your electricity bill is by changing your light bulbs to energy-efficient light globes. Traditional incandescent or halogen light bulbs can bring that bill up without even trying! Energy efficient light globes, like LED lights, not only use less electricity but they also have a longer life span.
Hot water really does take a lot of power and can increase your electricity bill significantly. When possible, it’s best to wash your clothes in cold water to save a little extra. Newer washing machines also have eco settings which are great to take advantage of to save anywhere you can.
Even though your appliances may not be in use, the appliances being in standby with the power point switched on is costing you money! Things like your television, dishwasher, kettle, toaster, phone charger and microwave still guzzle electricity even when they’re not being used. Switching these off from the power point will avoid this and save you money off your electricity bill. Alternatively, you could purchase a smart power board which will stop standby electricity for you if you’re forgetful!
A thermostat is the heat centre of your home. Checking if your thermostat is not functioning properly or programmed at the wrong setting could be increasing your electricity bill significantly. A way you could save on your electricity bill is by setting a programmed temperature and time so it’s not running all day every day.
A smart way to save on your electricity bill is by comparing energy offers from different companies. Why pay more when a competitor will offer you less!? It doesn’t take you long to compare and could save you a lot of money on your electricity bills.
Insulation in your home will reduce heating and cooling costs which contribute to your rising electricity bill. It’s cost-effective and will help sustain a comfortable natural temperature in your home.
