Normally it is the winter months that produce the highest electricity bill that we will receive throughout the year. Now that September has come, spring has truly sprung. What better time to start thinking about your electricity output and ways to reduce your quarterly electricity bill. Below are our top tips to keep extra cash in your wallet before summer hits.
One of the best ways to reduce your electricity is to stop using your air conditioner and instead open your windows or use ceiling fans if you have them. It is likely that your air conditioner/heater warmed up your home continuously throughout winter, so instead open your windows and keep your home refreshed without using power.
Energy.Gov recommends the act of natural ventilation. Natural ventilation works best in areas that have cool nights and normal breezes. When the wind enters your home, it is drawn in like a vacuum effect that absorbs heat in the room, rises and then exits through the windows upstairs.
If you have a thermostat that you can set a programmed temperature into, this will help cool a space for a set amount of time without keeping it running for hours on end. By setting your thermostat to a specific time and temperature can help reduce your energy output by up to 10%.
With the amount of laundry that Australians wash every year, it is no wonder that our electricity output is a lot. By changing the temperature of the water from hot or warm to cold, this can help reduce the amount of electricity that you consume but also help lower your bill, as washing clothes in cold water can save you $115 a year.
One of the most practical ways of reducing your energy bill is by changing traditional incandescent light bulbs to LED lights. By changing your light bulbs, it can save you almost $19 per bulb, per year off your power bill.
By simply knowing easy ways to reduce your energy bill for Spring, but also your energy output can save you money and time. If you have any questions about our ideas posted or just want to talk to one of our experienced electricians, contact us today!
