Electricity Bill too high? Try these suggestions:
Make the switch to LED lighting. The LED (Light Emitting Diode) is the most energy efficient lighting technology around. Gives good light while using little energy!
There are LED Televisions, LED flashlights, and LED lamps. If you are in an apartment, buy LED floor lamps instead of using apartment fixtures (They burn a lot energy)
Also the Lifetime of LEDs are MUCH longer than conventional lighting technologies!
Most LED televisions use about half as much energy as a comparable LCD television. Check the ENERGY STAR cost on the television. It is a yearly estimate assuming you use the tv 5 hours a day.
Already you are saving anywhere from 30%-50% of the energy you use.
And if you want to save even more, use candles! Anyone know how to convert candelas to lumens? haha
USE UP THE SUNLIGHT!
One way I managed to get my bill to about $30 a month was to not use lights during the day, and waiting until sunset to turn on any lights. This saved me almost 3/4 the amount I would have spent.
Did you know the yearly cost for charing your iPad is about $1.36? Not so for a desktop computer!! And it has all day battery life, so you hardly have to charge it!
PORTABLE HEATING AND AIR!
When it gets hot, you might be glad you invested in that PORTABLE AIR CONDITIONING UNIT.
My dad got smart and bought this Kerosene Heater! If you have children, be careful with this one.
ALong with a few BLANKETS it is enough to heat you through the winter.
Just a few tips to keep your electricity bill down.
