7 Simple Steps To A Lower Electric Bill

Turn Everything Off

One of the biggest wastes of power today is mobile device chargers. When not in use, unplug them. Small amounts of energy still trickle through the charger, which causes a drain on your bill. They are like little vampires sucking your power while you are sleeping.

Buy Energy-Smart Appliances

Obviously, you can’t go out and buy all new appliances, but when it comes time to replace your existing appliances, look for big appliances that are energy-smart and have good sleep or energy-saving modes.

Use Less Appliances

Even better than using smarter appliances are using fewer appliances altogether. You can do this by getting rid of some appliances that you rarely use (think microwave or blender) or by replacing them with an electric-free version.

Shop Smart

When shopping, try to buy energy-smart items.
