We know during the summer, electricity bills can skyrocket because we have our air conditioning units.  Rather than sitting in a hot room, use a few of these tips so you won’t feel guilty about leaving your AC on all day!

Energy Star Appliances – When you go appliance shopping, look for Energy Star appliances.  An average household spends about $2000 on energy each year. Energy Star appliances can cut costs by up to 30%! That’s about $600 in savings each year.

CFL bulbs – CFLs use about 75% less energy and last up to 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs. You can save around $35 in electric costs over the lifetime of each bulb you replace.

powerstripPower Strips – Did you know 65% of electrical use by home electronics happens when they are turned off? TV’s, DVD players, Blu Ray Players, basically everything that has a remote uses electricity even when they are turned off.  You can save up to $100 a year by turning off power strips when electronics are not in use.

Clean Dryer Screens – Keeping your dryer screens and dryer duct clear of lint will make it run more efficiently.  Lint greatly reduces efficiency so by simply keeping it clean, you can save about $25 dollars a year.
