We love our appliances, don’t we? Whether it’s our fridge, microwave, stove, toaster, coffee maker, etc, all these appliances and electronics take a lot of power, sometimes too much, which will, in turn, have a profound effect on your electricity bill. With just a few simple tricks, you can take steps to reduce your electricity bill and continue to have an energy efficient house.
Step 1: Keep your refrigerator or freezer away from the stove, dishwasher, vents, or in the direct sunlight. This will cause the fridge or freezer to use more electricity to keep everything inside cold enough.
Step 2: Something as simple as chargers for laptops and phones that are still plugged in, even when they aren’t connected to a device, draw power. So in this case, unplug chargers when not using them.
Step 3: Using ‘Energy Star’ rated appliances and devices. These appliances and devices have been specifically created to be energy efficient and use less power.
Following these steps will help contribute to a lower electrical bill and a better energy efficient house.
