Tips on Bringing Down Electric Bills
If you’re worried about electrical bills increasing during particular seasons, you may want to adjust the way your run certain equipment in your home. For one, if you stay home working during the day, try and let the natural light in through the windows and leave all the lights off. Never leave the TV running if you’re not using it, and make sure all your electronics from laptops to phones are unplugged when you’re not occupied with them. These things can really help cut down on the amount of energy you use in your home. Some equipment may need an upgrade, and you could consider energy efficient equipment for lightbulbs, and other amenities.

Sadly, the COVID-19 pandemic has affected nearly all walks of life, forcing people to find creative ways to save money as we wait for things to return back to normal. As the calendar inches closer and closer to summer, home and business owners may be thinking of ways they can save on their electric bills. Here are some tips to help you achieve that goal this summer.
Be Efficient With Your Air Conditioning Use
If you have an AC unit in your residence or business, make sure it’s only turned on when you’re at home or employees are in the building and are actually able to use it. Moreover, savings can add up if you turn it off when you’re go to bed for the night or if you set the temperature a bit higher than usual when you leave for the day.
On days and nights where it’s naturally cool outside, consider turning off the unit all together and simply open up your windows and let in a cool breeze. Also, utilizing the ceiling fans in your home or business can help reduce your dependence on your unit, also helping you save at the margins.
Keep Your Air Conditioning Units in Great Shape
Make sure the vents in your AC unit are clean and free of debris, and that the unit’s filters are periodically cleaned and/or replaced. Failing to perform maintenance on it will cause your air conditioning unit to not work as efficiently, which consequently, will cause the unit to consume more energy. And more energy consumption means a higher bill.
Choose a Great Thermostat
Learning how to properly program your thermostat is another way to save money this summer (year-round, actually). Whether it’s doing it the old school way and reading the instructional manual that comes with it, or it’s googling and watching a YouTube tutorial, accurately programming your thermostat will help you save bundles of money.
