I’ve been struggling to get our energy bills down in any conceivable way that I can.
When I l received how amazingly energy efficient LED bulbs are compared to both incandescents plus CFLs, I updated all of the light bulbs throughout our house.
It wasn’t the greatest change in the world, but I noticed a dip in our electricity bill afterward. This emboldened myself and others to get our utility bills even lower. I purchased surge strips for all of our major electronics plus appliances so I could split the energy coming from the wall even when these items are powered off. Although not the greatest change, it still had a net positive effect on our utility bills. Using less warm water in the shower helped as well. I didn’t realize that our water gas furnace was using so much electricity to heat our water. Thus far, the greatest change in our electricity costs came after I had our central heating plus cooling system updated. This beach house has the same a/c plus furnace since before I purchased it 10 years ago. It was long overdue for an Heating plus A/C replace. I certainally advocated an a/c with the highest SEER number that I could still afford. This would mean that I’d get the strongest plus most energy efficient component while staying within our self-imposed budget. I’m glad that I got a new a/c because our electricity bill dropped by 30% a week after the installation was complete. I tell all the people from friends plus family to coworkers that getting an energy efficient a/c is a single of the surest ways of getting your weekly electricity costs down.
