The Seven Best Tips to Lower Your Electric Bill

Paying the monthly electric bill can sometimes be a headache.  You don't always know what to expect, especially during the Winter and Summer months.   Obviously, most people want to know how they can still keep their home comfortable, but without handing over too much cash each month.

 

So what are some of the things that you can do to lower your electric bill?

  • Unplug appliances.  Even when they aren't in use, home appliances and cell phone chargers can still eat up electricity.

 

  • Clean fridge coils.  Clean those condenser coils at the back of your refrigerator refrigerator at least twice a year to keep it running cool.

 

  • Only run your washing machine when you have a full load of clothes.

 

  • Try hanging washed clothes instead of using the dryer on some days.

 

  • Run your dishwasher only when you have a full load of dishes.

 

  • Use energy efficient fluorescent bulbs, which uses as much as 75% less electricity than standard light bulbs.

 

  • Have your home treated with spray foam insulation.

How Spray Foam Insulation Lowers Your Electric Bill

 

When a professional company sprays foam insulation into your attic or walls, it creates an airtight seal.  That seal keeps heat outside of your home much better than insulation such as fiberglass.  This means you don't have to keep the air conditioning on as low, or as long as you normally would.  And that can reduce your monthly electric bill by up to a whopping 50%.

 

Ever hear of Habitat for Humanity?  That's the nonprofit group that builds affordable homes for people.  Well they ran an experiment to see just how much money a home treated with spray foam insulation would save on electric bills.  After just five months, the house with fiberglass insulation owed $547 more in electric bills than the home with spray foam insulation.  Imagine how much the spray foam house will save over 20 years.
