If there is one thing people would love to save money on it is their electricity. It’s always a bill that a person can’t necessarily help. While you do not want to be obsessing about your electricity bill all of the time, there are some things you can do to actually help save electricity in the home.
Close the Doors
This may seem like common sense, but closing the doors to your front door and back door can save you several dollars on your electricity bill. It’s so easy for kids to leave the doors open, not realizing what they are doing.
Just the other day I was wondering why the house felt colder…. only to discover our front door was wide open! The boys can come in but not make sure the door “clicked” closed. Lesson learned.
Seal up the Cracks
Sealing up the cracks in your home is one important tool to saving electricity. Every tiny crack in your home is a way for air to get in and out. If your home is solely run on electricity, then this is a problem. You can caulk up the cracks, just to make sure no air flows through.
We work hard on sealing up our windows… which have made a big difference during the winter and summer.
Use the Sunlight
If you have decent windows that don’t let all of your heat or air conditioning out, then use the sunlight. Open up your curtains and turn off the lights in your home. It’s easy to get comfortable with all of your lights on in the home, however, it can also be a costly comfort. Daylight has a purpose, so feel free to utilize it!
We often don’t have any lights on in the house… even though I’m home during the day. We just don’t need them!
