I don’t know about you, but as far as I’m concerned somethings gotta give. Our pay stays the same, or goes down, yet every other cost for the average household keeps going up. If you need some relief here is a list of some simple things you can do to cut your energy bills starting today.
Of course everyone knows that cutting your electric bill isn’t just good for you, it’s good for the planet since you are using less electricity and the harmful emissions it generates.
So you can get a two-for-one, follow the simple steps below and you will cut your electric bill, and help the environment:
1. Let Mother Nature cool and warm your home. You can easily and cheaply install solar panels and/or wind turbines. But even if you don’t want to do that you can still use the power of the wind and sun.
On breezy days open your windows and allow the breeze to cool your home. In the winter let the sun shine in and let it help warm your home. These two things can go a long way to a lower electric bill and they’re easy and free.
2. Keep the heat in and the cold out, or vice a versa depending on the season. Using inexpensive insulation and window kits will help keep your house from leaking.
Most of us remember our parents yelling at us to close the door because, “I’m not paying to heat/cool the outside!”. The same thing applies now, adding insulation, new windows, window coverings, etc are just a few of the simple things you can do to help lower your energy bill.
Use these common sense and easy to follow steps to cut your energy bills starting today. You don’t have to limit yourself to these things, there are many other things you can start doing right now.
