Use Less Energy

When the time comes to pay your bills its a difficult time especially when it comes to the high electric bills which seem to get higher every month. I'm sure you would like to finf a way to reduce your electric bill . In this article I'm going to share a few tips to do this.

It's a good idea to discuss the importance of doing this with the family. When you discuss it with your family suggest tips like make sure to turn off a light when you leave a room. Also make sure you turn off all appliances when you ar finished with them . Every little bit of electricity will add up after a perod of time.

There lots of ways to save on electricity . Make to turn of the television when nobody is watching . The television olso consumes electricity when it is turned off. When you are away for a long perod of time you should pull the plug on your television ,your cable box and the computer which all consume power on stand by when it is off.

A good idea is to check all the light bulbs in your house. Incandescent bulbs burn more power watt for watt then fluorescent lights. You can replace a 60w incandescent bulb with a 13w fluorescent bulb for the same amount of light. There is led bulbs now available which save even more power. They are a bit more expensive up front but they have a longer life.

You can probably take steps with your regular appliances that would save power:

1. You should not use the washing machine unless you have a full regular load of clothes . Also you can probably wash with cold water instead of using hot water.

2. Make not to use the dish washer unless it has a full load it uses the same power witha full load as a half load.

3. The air conditioner uses a lot of power ai could be used on alower setting most of the time. When you are at work and the kida are at school the air conditioner could be turned off.

4. There are gagets you can buy to put on your appliances to see which appliances consumes the most power.

5. Always remember when you buy a new appliance buy the most energy efficient appliance.

You can get lots more information by getting the Earth4Energy energy savings guide this guide has solutions on how to generate power with wind generators and solar panels. With these devices you can generate reuasble power with the wind and the sun to get free power.
