4) Wear A Bunnyhug (Hoodie) At Home
If you need to save a few bucks on the power bill, setting the temperature a couple degrees colder and dressing warmer will make a big difference. You may not be able to stroll around the house in shorts and a t-shirt, but wearing sweatpants and a bunnyhug when the temperature is lower will definitely save money.
5) Eliminate Dust And Replace Filters
Make sure your furnace doesn’t have to work harder than necessary. Vacuuming and cleaning up dust throughout your home will prevent your furnace filter getting dirty and clogged. Remember to clean and replace your filter regularly.
6) Dimmer Switches
Using dimmer switches on your lights can also help to save power. If you don’t need your lights on full brightness, you can use a dimmer switch to reduce their output and save on power. Keep in mind that not all bulbs are dimmable but you can pick some up at your local Electrical Wholesale or Home Depot.
7.) Water Heater
Water heaters can use up quite a bit of power. Here are some ways to reduce the amount of power your water heater uses:
- Washing laundry with cold water instead of hot water.
- Check what your water heater temperature setting. If it’s set at the highest possible, it’s
going to be working hard to keep water at that temperature. By lowering it a little bit you will
still have hot water and your water heater won’t be working so hard.
