Tired of seeing those high energy bills?
Well, saving on energy isn’t just a way to help the environment and be more energy-efficient – it is also a great way to save money.
With our advice, you can save money and make your home more comfortable by reviewing your energy tariff and reducing the amount of gas and electricity you use.
1. Turn Off Those Switches
You can usually turn off all electronic and electrical appliances by unplugging them or simply switching them off. You’ll be surprised by the number of dollars you could save just by following this easy step!
By using a smart plug socket that can be turned on/off via an app on your phone, you can make sure you turn on your appliances when you need them. You can use cheaper timer plugs to schedule turning devices on/off if you have a routine.
2. Use Technology
You can Save Energy with AI for HVAC. As time has gone by and technology has progressed, AI solutions have progressed as well. They’ve been able to make operations function more smoothly as a result of increased processing power and decreased technology expenses.
3. Reduce Your Thermostat
Heating and hot water costs account for almost half of all energy bills. If you install and use thermostatic radiator valves, a room thermostat, and remote control, you could save a great deal of money throughout the year.
4. Replace Your Old Boiler
If your boiler or hot water tank is dated, it probably supplies your shower directly with hot water whenever it is turned on. Investing in an electric shower or heater, where water is heated only on a need basis.
New boilers now come with boiler programmers, room thermostats and thermostatic radiator controls, allowing for higher energy control within your household.
5. Wash Colder
Did you know that washing your clothes at 30˚ rather than 40˚ can help you reduce your energy usage? Plus, if you can cut out one wash cycle per week, you’re bound to save up. You can surely wait till your laundry basket is full rather than doing just half a load (saves on the number of times you need to fold laundry then).
Additionally, washing colder is a small change at home that can have a big impact on the environment. Turning your wash temperature down can save energy every wash. Research shows that every degree you choose makes a difference.
6. Dry Your Laundry Naturally
When it comes to drying your washed laundry, an easy savings tip is to air dry your laundry rather than using a dryer for it, particularly if the weather is warm or windy.
7. Energy Saving Light Bulbs
Lighting your home consumes a lot of electricity, but you can save money by purchasing energy-saving light bulbs (LEDs or CFLs), which are widely accessible. You will not lose out on any lighting around your home and will also save money.
8. Turn Off Lights
Again, another easy one! But you might be surprised by how easily we forget to do this or stick to the simplest of tasks.
When you’re not using your lights, turn them off. Regardless of the type of light, turning off a light for a few seconds saves more energy than turning it on again.
