Everyone wants to spend less and save more this winter.
With Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s Day and cold weather come increased costs.
One way to save on your electric bill is to put Christmas lights on a timer. New LED lights can be used to decorate the tree and house. These use a lot less energy and therefore cut electricity cost. Plus the LED lights last longer.
Bundle up! Wearing layers and turning the thermostat down saves.
When preparing a large holiday meal cook several dishes at one time. Save on electricity by using the oven less. When running your dishwasher save dollars by opening the door and allowing the dishes to air dry when the drying cycle comes on. It takes a lot of electricity to generate the heat that dries dishes.
Some exercise equipment, appliances and electronics should be unplugged to save electricity costs. Especially when used infrequently. These continue to draw power when plugged in. It will save $$$.
Electrical items that might continue to draw current if left plugged in:
- Desktop computers
- Laptop computers
- DVD players and VCRs
- Cable TV boxes
- Cordless phones
- Stereos and radios
- iPods and electronic gadgets sapping energy from a plug-in transformer
Or, to avoid the hassle of having to unplug them choose your devices with built-in, energy-saving features. For example, some cell phone chargers “unplug” internally when no phone is connected. You can purchase plug adapters or power strips that only use power for a pre-set time (like three or six hours). After the pre-determined time ends, these gadgets stop eating electricity.
