Tips on saving electricity in your home

With the ever increasing costs of living and global warming, there should be better time when we stop throwing money out the window and save some by starting to make our own electricity.

Electrical energy was one of man’s greatest discoveries, and it has helped build new civilizations. The large amount of electricity produced has its source in water, wind, fossil fuels, and nuclear fission. Here I will explore the different methods to save on electric bills for everyone.

The most dificult day of every month is when it is time to pay bills, and the biggest bill most of the time is that electricity bill that we get. It’s high time that we take serious measures to reduce and save on electric bills. Do not worry, we will share some key tips and will make sure you reach your goal.

Make sure to tell your family members about the importance of saving electricity. For children you can setup a reward system for them for saving electricity. Teach them some tips like switching off the lights when they are not in a room. Make sure to switch off all the appliances even if you are sure to be back in five minutes, every single second will help a lot just like every drop of water makes an ocean.

Another great way to save on electric bills is replace all the incandescent bulbs in the house with compact fluorescent light or those CFL bulbs. These bulbs consume less electricity as they consume less power.

Take a huge step forward and avoid using those typical items regularly that consumes alot of power –
• The washing machine should be used only when there is a bucket full of clothes.
• The air-conditioner should be kept at minimum high or low temperature.
• Take note to switch off the computer monitor when not in use. It consumes maximum power and it just takes a second to switch it off.
