If you’re at a point where “my energy bill is too high” is your monthly mantra, it’s time to consider new day to day practices that will lead to energy bill savings.

Thankfully, lowering your energy bill costs by switching to energy-efficient appliances is cheaper than it was even a decade ago.

Check out our tips on how to save on an energy bill and cut down on your daily energy use below!

How to Save on an Energy Bill: Day to Day

Some changes to your household routine are simple. Day-to-day changes are hard to adjust to, but the energy bill savings are worth it.

Turn off Unused Lights

This is the advice you’ve heard a million times before, but it’s true — turning off the lights you aren’t using can save lots in the long run. Consider installing light dimmers to more effectively manage your usage.

Pay Attention to Peak Use Hours

Peak hours are the bane of energy bill savings when energy use prices are hugely increased. Put your unused devices on standby and only use energy when necessary.

If you don’t know your peak hours, contact your energy provider or visit their utility website.

Air-Dry Your Dishes

Dish drying racks are very inexpensive, and the small investment can help to lower both your energy bill costs as well as your water usage. See if your dishwasher has an air-dry option, or manually stop the cycle.

How to Save on an Energy Bill: New Tech

Some changes to your household routine are a little more complex. Installing new technology, upgrading old appliances, and new sources of energy are excellent ways to create a lot of energy bill savings.

Switch to Energy-Efficient Bulbs

Energy-efficient bulbs used to be expensive, but now just about any grocery store stocks them right next to the regular bulbs. Just be sure to match the bulb’s rating with your power source.

Upgrade your Washer and Dryer 

Upgrading your washer and dryer is an expensive initial investment, but over time will significantly reduce your energy bill. Shop around and look for washers and dryers that are energy-star approved and fit a comfortable budget.

Switch to Solar Energy

There are many benefits of switching to solar energy, the main being that your energy costs are practically nullified. If you are wondering “Is there a solar company near me?” don’t forget to ask about incentives and discounts — plenty of states offer subsidies for those looking to switch!

Saving is Simple

With only a few small changes and by paying extra attention to your energy use during peak hours, you will notice the significant results of your new energy-saving routine on your next bill.

Additionally, using new tech in your energy-saving plan will cut out a huge chunk of your monthly payments — or cut your payments altogether.
