As all of our monthly bills seem to continually increase, including our electric bill, many of us start asking how can we can lower electric bills? Many of us are interested in saving energy while we also save money on our monthly bills. Luckily with the green movement we are starting to see new innovations that can help us save both money and energy. With these energy saving tips you should be armed with the knowledge to reduce your monthly bill and save energy at the same time.
Choose Energy-Efficient Lighting
One of the best ways to save money and save energy on your home lighting is by using energy-efficient light bulbs. This can mean a few different things; the most popular of them is compact fluorescent bulbs, otherwise known as CFLs. LED lights are also very energy-efficient and they last even longer than CFLs but the upfront cost is usually a bit higher.
Using three-way bulbs can also help you save energy as you can choose the level of brightness or watt needed. If you stick mostly to the lowest watt it will help save money but also provide the option of brighter light for those instances where it is needed.
Using night lights, specifically LED night lights, can also help save energy and money. Sometimes you don’t need to fully illuminate a room, you may just need a soft glow.
Other Energy Saving Tips
Outside of energy-efficient lighting there are a few other things you can do to help reduce your bill:
* Turn off lights you aren’t using. This is simple but it can be very effective, especially in larger homes.
* Choose just the lighting that fits your needs, don’t light a whole room unless you really need to.
* Place lamps in the corner of rooms or by mirrors so the light reflects. Also keep in mind light reflects more off of light colored walls than dark colored walls.
* Maximize the use of natural light in your home by arranging furniture and using curtains that allow the greatest amount of sunlight to enter the rooms so you don’t need to turn lights on during the day.
By making just a few relatively simple changes in both your choice of bulbs and your regular habits you may be surprised by the savings you will see on your future electric bills. These seemingly little things really can make a difference.
