Several Ways to Save Electricity in Your Home

Raise your hand if you like throwing away money? Yeah, didn’t think so! No one likes to waste money but that’s exactly what happens if you’re not careful about your electricity use. If you think you’re exempt, think again. Here are several ways to help you save electricity all year round.

1: Turn Off Lights

This one seems pretty obvious right? Turning off the lights in rooms you’re not using is probably the number one place to start when trying to save electricity. It is as easy as flipping a switch. Despite how easy this fix is, it’s still one of the number one tips when it comes to saving electricity.

Afterall, parents have been hounding their children to turn off lights since electricity was invented! If this is a problem in your home, you could try using motions sensors that will automatically turn the lights off if no one is in the room. This way lights won’t get left on all day even if a child leaves their bedroom light on before they leave for school.

2: Upgrade to LED Lightbulbs

LED lights are the latest and greatest when it comes to lighting for you home. The US Department of Energy says that LEDs use at least 75 percent less energy than incandescent lighting. If that weren’t enough to convince you to make the switch, they also last 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs.

That’s a huge twofer. You’re not only saving more energy and money by using LED light bulbs you’ll also use less of these bulbs over time which makes for even more savings. They also don’t put out as much heat which is very helpful in the summer to help keep air conditioning costs down.


3: Use Fans to Cool Down

Speaking of summer savings, using fans can be a great way to stay cool. One of the reasons that summer is such an electricity heavy season is because of air conditioning. Anything that can help to reduce the use of air conditioning during the summer will help to reduce your electricity usage. While fans still use electricity they make a huge difference for the temperature of your home and electricity use. Using a ceiling fan in particular can make your room feel up to 10 degrees cooler!

4: Buy Energy Efficient Appliances

Another great way to save energy without even thinking about it is to buy energy efficient appliances. If your appliances are only a few years old, you might not see a huge difference by upgrading to new ones.

If your appliances are more than a decade old though, you’re much more likely to see a difference in how much power you’re using. Especially if you’re replacing your most energy costly appliances like a refrigerator. A new energy efficient refrigerator will use less than half of the energy a 12-year-old model might. Be sure to keep an eye out for the Energy Star label when shopping for your new appliances. That will ensure that you’re getting the most energy efficient appliances possible. Energy Star appliances have to meet more strict standards than what’s required by government standards.

5. Add Solar Panels to Your Home

If you’re worried about saving electricity and power, why not produce your own instead? With solar panels you can potentially eliminate your power bill altogether. Even better your solar panels could pay for themselves in as few as 10 years or less.


Even better? You’re not just making power and cutting down on your electric bill you’re also adding to the value of your home and helping the environment by cutting down on carbon emissions and pollution.  And with the help of SOLARPARTS you won’t find a better price anywhere.
