Tips That Could Help Save You 50% on Your Energy Bills

Everyone is looking for some way to save money especially when it comes to their energy bills and consumption. If you think that it might be too hard to cut back on your gas or electric bills, you might be surprised to see just how easy it can be no matter what time of year that it might be. Here you will find some tips that might be able to save you up to 50% on your energy bills each month.

One of the easiest and first things you should do is go through your house and change all of your light bulbs to the CFL variety of bulbs. This alone will help you cut back on 20% on your total energy bill if all of the bulbs in your house are CFL bulbs.

It's always a good idea to have surge protectors around the house that have a variety of different appliances and electronic devices plugged into them. This not only saves on your devices it cuts down on energy if you switch off the surge protector to the appliances that you are not using at the time. By doing this you don't have to unplug anything and they can all be turned off and on with one switch. Even when your devices are turned off they are still using electricity.

Always make sure that the thermostat in your home is a few degrees higher in the summer months and then a few degrees lower in the winter. You should increase your AC to turn on at about 80 to 84 degrees and then in the winter set the heater to come on at no higher than 73 degrees.

In the winter time when you are inside your home you should make sure to wear warmer clothes even though you are inside and when it's summer you should wear very thin clothes even when you are inside the home. This is going to save on both the use of the heater and the AC.

You should also, if you have them, and maybe you should install them, is to use ceiling fans to help circulate the air in you home. This should be done during the summer months as well as during the winter months. This will make less work on your heating and cooling system.

You also need to remember to always turn off both the heater and the AC when there is nobody at home. There is no need to waste all of that energy if there is not going to be anyone home. It won't take that long to warm up or cool down you home once you turn your heat or AC on.

When the weather is really nice make sure to have all of your windows and doors in to get the fresh air in. This is especially a good idea in the early mornings to let in all of the cool morning air and then once again in the evenings to let in any cool air of the night. This will save on your AC big time.

In order to cut down on the energy it takes to heat water it's a good idea to take shorter showers and to make sure to limit the amount of loads of laundry that you do each week. Make sure that all of your loads are completely full loads and avoid doing small loads at all cost.

Make sure that all of your closets in your home as well as your garage door are closed, especially if your garage is connected to the house. The more space you have open the more energy that is going ot be used.

Make sure that all of your doors and windows are sealed good to make sure that no heat or cool air is escaping to the outside as well as none of the cold or heat is getting into the house. This will help you to put less strain on your heating and cooling system.

If after doing all of this and you still can't seem to get that electric bill down then you might want to get a hold of your electric company and have them come out and check your meter. Your meter might be old and is running faster which means you are going to get charged for energy that you aren't really using.
