How to make your home energy efficient
There are many methods in cutting your electricity bills at home and making it home energy efficient. Here are some methods how:
1. Replace your light bulbs
Incandescent light bulbs might give off a nice homey glow, but only 5 percent of their energy consumption is actually converted into light. Today’s LEDs, on the other hand, are on average 85 percent more efficient than incandescents. It's more energy saving if you convert your lightbulbs to energy saving ones.
2. Unplug energy vampires
Did you know that even after it’s fully charged, leaving your cell phone plugged in continues to pull power from the grid? Same with your laptop, TV, stereo, game console, and any other electronic device. These unused-but-plugged-in devices draw unnecessary energy that adds up over time.
3. Take shorter showers
You'll be surprise how by taking shorter showers can help save your cost with the electricity bill.
4. Skip the heat-dry setting for the dishwasher
That heat-dry setting is expensive. De-select it and best leave it to air dry instead. You can save a lot by not using the dishwasher.
