One of our main uses for electricity is lighting. At daytime, make full use of sunny days by letting more natural light in. Draw the curtains and open the blinds. You will see how bright it can be without turning on a single bulb. Have you noticed how many lights you turn on at night and compared it to how many you actually use? You can only be in one place at a time, so why are all the other places in your home lighted? Turn off any unused lights, by the end of the year, you will see a few dollars shaved off your bill. It also helps to use energy efficient light bulbs.
Turning the faucet off when not in use
Most of the electricity consumption of homes falls into 3 categories. These are lighting, cooling and heating. Reduce the use of your water heater by being smart with your water. Do not let the water run when brushing your teeth, soaping dishes, shaving, or even washing hands.
We leave most of our electronics plugged even when they are not in use. Many of our electronics consume power when on standby mode. You are paying for electricity without even using it. To avoid this, all unused electronics should be unplugged.
Change your laundry habits
You can save on power and even on water when changing some habits when doing the laundry. Use full loads when you laundry. This lessens the water and frequency of using the washing machine. Try washing your clothes in cold water to remove the energy to heat the water. Lastly, try air drying your clothes on sunny days. It may take a little bit more work and time, but it also will save you a few dollars.
