The cost of using electricity seems to only grow as time goes on. It’s fine to use the power, of course, but we should all avoid wasteful usage if possible. Even more than that, there are a lot of ways to cut your electric bill, so let the best provider of residential electrical service in Baltimore County help with that!
The Most Trusted Residential Electrical Service in Baltimore County
No need to search for long-term changes, because it’s easy enough to save on your energy bills with a few simple and quick tips. For example, buy a smart power strip and plug everything from one outlet into that. “Energy vampires” refers to the fact that your plugged-in electronics will drain power even when they aren’t powered on, simply because they’re plugged in. A smart power strip would help to prevent this from happening.
Similarly, you should unplug any and all devices that aren’t in use. Yes, it will take a bit of extra effort, but it’ll be worth it once you see the difference that it makes in your bills. To make this even easier, you can just plug everything into a single power strip and turn that off instead.
How old are your major appliances, such as your refrigerator, dishwasher, furnace, washer, and/or dryer? If they’re fairly old, then they’re likely draining a ton of energy: much more so than modern, updated appliances. If you can afford it, then swap out as many of these dated models as you can for their more energy-efficient counterparts. Though this does require you spending money at the present, you’ll see returns on these investments not far in the future.
Would you have guessed that the lighting in your home counts for about an eighth of your total bill? It’s true! Luckily, installing dimmer switches on your lights can help to cut back on wasteful use while keeping you out of the dark.
