It goes without saying that installing solar panels and switching to solar energy will save you a lot of money, but there are other ways to save money too. Here are some of the solutions:
- Air Drying
If you own a dishwasher, avoid drying your dishes with its drying cycle. Simply open the door of the dishwasher and let the air dry out your dishes. If you decide to do your dishes at the end of the day, you will wake up and have your dishes dry and ready for use.
If you have a water heater, it is suggested that you lower the thermostat on it to 120 degrees. Having it at 120 degrees will potentially save you $12-$30 for every 10 degrees you reduce.
- Washing machine
To avoid unnecessary energy spending, try to turn on your washing machine only when it is full. Turning on your washing machine for half of the load or less will waste energy and you will end up paying more.
- Power Strips
Usage of power strips is advised. When you are out of the house, simply turn the switch off when the equipment attached to it is not in use.
Insulating your heating ducts will lower your energy bills. In a typical house, 20-30% of the air moving through the ducts is wasted due to leaks.
- Light bulbs
Use CFL and LED light bulbs. These light bulbs use 20-25% less energy compared to the traditional incandescent bulbs. A great way to save energy, which is not that expensive!
- Turn off the lights
When you are not at home, try to keep your lights off. 90% of the energy that the incandescent light use is given off as heat and 10% results in light.
- New thermostats
Installing a programmable thermostat will allow for heat management. Turning down the heat while you are away from home could save you a lot of money.
Install a timer on your water heating device. It will turn it off when you are not at home or at night which will result in money saving.
Unplug your devices that are charging once they are fully charged and unplug the chargers that are not in use. Many charges draw power even when the device is not connected to the charger.
