25 December TIPS TO REDUCE ENERGY BILLS IN YOUR HOME

In the modern day, we rely on a variety of electrical equipment to add convenience and comfort to our lives. However, that also strains the planet’s natural resources as fossil fuels are used to generate electricity. It’s the need of the hour to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and can do our bit for the environment by changing the way we consume energy.

It’s important to get your electrical systems audited by a skilled and licensed electrician. They will also be able to tell you, which features on your property, are consuming more electricity and the steps you can take to curb energy consumption. While the impact of these efforts might not be evident immediately, you will notice that you are using less energy on your property in the long term. It also means you will end up spending less money on utility bills each month.

Helpful Tips to Curb Energy Usage

As mentioned, an experienced electrician will assess the existing systems on your property. They will recommend which energy-efficient products you can use and provide guidance on the practices you can adopt to save energy in your home. Here are some tips to follow to reduce energy bills in your home:

  • When you leave any electrical equipment or appliances on standby mode, they continue to consume some amount of electricity. So, when they aren’t in use, switch them off at the powerpoint.
  • Incandescent bulbs consume more energy than LED bulbs. Replace all the bulbs and light fixtures with LED ones. The latter are 80% more energy-efficient than standard fixtures and have a longer lifespan. They are a good way to reduce your energy bills and reduce the amount you spend on replacing light bulbs in your home.
  • If you are replacing your desktop computer, it’s a good idea to consider switching to an energy-efficient laptop instead.
  • Make sure that you and all your family members switch off lights when they aren’t required. If every member of your family makes a conscious effort to do this, it will become a habit. You can save a considerable amount of energy, without any major effort.
  • You should consult an electrician who can help design and install motion sensors and timers that will switch off the lights at specific times and in unused areas.
  • It’s also vital that you get regular maintenance of your electrical system and appliances done. When these installations are in good working condition, it helps reduce energy consumption.
