Sungenia has Spring Energy Saving Tips to Help Keep Your Energy Bill Down.
Spring officially arrived on March 20th this year and the beautiful weather is finally here. April brought families together for Easter, and Earth Day celebrations were recognized halfway through the month. Soothing warm weather and blooming flowers are also a great reminder of how we can save some green at the same time. Team Sungenia has six easy ways to help keep your energy bill down.
- Open curtains, blinds, or shutters and let the natural light from the sun in. Lights in the average home can account for more than 10% of electricity bills.
- Upgrade all of the lightbulbs in your residence. LEDs can help make your home more energy-efficient by being more longer lasting and using on average around 50% less electricity.
- Cook your meals outside. Warmer spring weather is a great time to enjoy the climate, break out the barbeque, and cook food outdoors.
- Air-dry clothing and fabrics. Take advantage of the fresh spring air and hang some clothes, sheets, or towels outside or on a clothesline to dry instead of putting a load of clothes in the dryer. Clothes dryers are the most energy-draining appliance in the household, so using it less could help lower your energy bill.
- Use a power strip. Put small household appliances such as fans and lamps on a power strip and turn it off when not in use. This not only helps you organize electrical cords but also helps you remember to turn off lights or fans when they aren’t necessary.
- Open your windows. Using open windows instead of air conditioning or fans to cool or air out your home is a quick and easy way to reduce your daily household energy usage.
Little changes like these can help make a big difference. Some other great energy-saving tips include taking shorter cooler showers, unplugging or putting devices such as laptops on sleep mode, upgrading to energy-efficient appliances such as those with the ENERGY STAR label, and more.
Taking a look at the energy efficiency of your property doesn’t only save you money but also helps out the environment by helping you save time, money, and resources. Making the decision to switch from fossil fuels to solar-powered energy has the same yearly greenhouse gas emissions reduction as planting 150 trees.
