Lowering your utility bills may be easier than you’d think, and believe it or not, you won’t have to suffer in the process.
No one enjoys opening up utility bills, especially during two main times in the year: mid-summer, or the coldest months of winter. But there is hope.
Here are some easy ways to lower your utility bill this winter:
- Cook up some savings with what you use to fix your meals. If you have a choice between an electric stove or using a microwave, use the microwave. You may use up to 90% less energy than when you cook on the stove.
- Put your small appliances and electronics to “sleep” and save by unplugging when not in use. If it has a light on it even when it’s “off,” it’s drawing electricity. Get in the habit of unplugging.
- Put old appliances to rest. If your major appliances or furnace are more than 10 years old, they are costing more to run than newer models which are designed to run 10% to 20% cheaper than older models.
- Give that dial a twist and shout. Sometimes moving your thermostat down a few degrees can help you save significantly, even though you might not notice a dip in your comfort levels.
