If you’re like most people, your electric bill is probably one of your biggest monthly expenses - especially during the dead of summer when your air condition can barely keep your house cool.

However, there are plenty of things that you can do that will help you save on electric costs.

Do It Yourself Money-Savers: 

Not every money-saving technique requires up-front money or maintenance. There are many simple steps that you can take as a homeowner to reduce your monthly electric bill. 

Adjust the Temperature in Your Home

One of the easiest ways to save on your electric bill is to adjust your thermostat with the seasons and the temperature outside. During the dead of Summer when outdoor temperatures often reach the mid to high 80s, you should raise your thermostat a few degrees so that the air condition system doesn’t have to work as hard. 

Use Less Hot Water

This is another obvious way to reduce your energy bill. When you take a hot shower, put in a load of whites in the washing machine, or run a load in the dishwasher, your hot water heater is working hard. 

There are two main ways you can lessen the load on your heater: 

  • Lower the Temperature: For your next shower or load of laundry, consider just dropping the temperature, which will save you money. 
  • Reduce the Amount of Time: There is nothing quite like a long hot shower after a hard day of work, but taking shorter showers will save money on electrical costs. 

Electrical Work that Will Save You Money 

In addition to simple things you can do around the house to save money, there are also ways that involve some upfront costs but will maximize your electrical system’s efficiency.

Energy-Efficient Lighting

Over the years, designers have made light bulbs and light fixtures increasingly more energy efficient. As you look to save money on electric costs, there are two great ways to improve your home’s lighting, both in terms of aesthetics and energy consumption. 

  • Dimmers: Instead of a simple on/off switch, being able to choose the level of light in a room will allow you to meet the mood and save energy. 
  • Timers: Feel like you’re always walking around your home turning lights off? Setting a timer allows you to program your home to your schedule, making sure that no energy goes to waste.
