June 13, 2016

Want to know how to reduce your home energy bill? There are several things you can do from turning off lights to finding cheap Texas electricity plans. We’ve got plenty of tips to help you cut your energy bill and live in comfort this summer.

 

  1. Turn Out the Lights
    Shut off lights for rooms you aren’t using. Lighting can count toward a fair amount of your energy use. Installing a timer or occupancy sensors will reduce the likelihood of lights accidentally being left on since they shut lights off automatically.
  2. Clean Refrigerator Coils
    The coils in the back of your refrigerator radiate heat so the liquid inside can collect more heat to release. If the coils are dirty, they become insulated and don’t radiate heat as well.8 Ways to have Cheap Electricity in Texas
  3. Off Is Better Than Sleep…
    When you’re done using your computer, instead of putting into sleep mode, turn it off. Turning it off will greatly reduce the amount of energy drawn as opposed to being in sleep mode.
  4. …And Unplugged Is Better Than Off
    Even when they are off; all electronic devices continue to draw a small amount of power. This power draw could add up to a couple hundred dollars per year, so unplug anything that’s not being used for a long period of time. Power strips will help you cut power to several devices at once.
  5. Clean Filters and Lint Traps
    Replace the filter for your HVAC system every one to three months as needed to keep the airflow efficient. Clean out the lint traps in your dryer to do the same and prevent fire hazards.
  6. Lower Your Water Temperature
    Lower the setting on your water heater from the factory default of 140°F to 120°F to save a lot on energy use.
  7. Insulation
    Adding insulation to your attic and walls will reduce the amount of heat gain in the summer and heat loss in the winter. Insulating your water pipes carries hot water longer distances without cooling as much, saving you from running the hot water as long.
  8. Find Cheap Electricity in Texas
    Search for a new energy provider that offers cheap electricity for your home. Getting started is as easy as entering your zip code and comparing plans from multiple providers through the Shop Texas Electricity marketplace!
