As prices continue to climb across the board, everyone is finding ways to cut costs, survive on less, and save more.
The average American home consumes around 11,000 kilo-watt hours (kWh) of electricity annually, which is 13 times more than it used in 1950. On average, Americans can be spending anywhere from $900-$2,000 on electricity per year.
Turning off the lights is a great way to save money on your electricity bill. According to energy.gov, “Turning off fluorescent lights for more than 5 seconds will save more energy than will be consumed in turning them back on again.”
If you want to see how much energy you may be using, you can ask your utility provider to do an energy audit. They can then determine different ways to save money on your utilities. Some of these audits are for free, saving you money.
Some people find that smaller devices save energy. Better air conditioners and heating units can help save on power. Light bulbs make it even better.
Many people do not have the luxury of having a dryer. Maybe that is good because dryers suck up a lot of energy.
