Energy Saving Tips
It isn’t necessary for you to spend money in order to save money on your electrical energy bills, nor do you have to go to extreme lengths to save energy on electricity. Let a licensed and insured electrician come out to your home or office and work with you to develop a personalized plan with energy saving solutions. A few basic things you can do are:
- Make Sure Your Vents Are Open. Having closed vents in your home will make your air conditioner and heater work harder since the air isn’t flowing as freely as it should. A related energy saving solution is for you to make sure that your filters are clean and in good condition
- Install A Few Ceiling Fans. While fan installation won’t actually cool you down, it will help your home remain at a comfortable temperature. During the summer, set your fans so they spin counter-clockwise and pull hot air up and out. For the winter season, you’ll want your fans to spin clockwise so rising warm air is kept low.
- Use Your Washer More Efficiently. Whenever possible, wash your clothes in cold water to cut down on using energy to heat up the water. You should also make sure you don’t overstuff your drier so the hot air can move more efficiently and fully dry your clothes.
