How much electricity are you using?

Is your electricity bill higher than you would like? Here’s how to get that bill down and reduce your impact on the environment. 

The first problem is that keeping something plugged in actually uses electricity, but it is inconvenient to be messing with those plugs all the time. Home Selfe said, “To fix this problem, plug your devices and appliances into a power strip. If you’re not using the devices, turn them off and flip the switch on the power strip. This will cut off the power supply to prevent these energy vampires from wasting more electricity.”

For your overhead lights, install dimmers and LED bulbs to use less energy. 

Lastly, heating and cooling can be very expensive. Turn that thermostat up or down a few degrees depending on the season and use ceiling fans to cool down instead.
