How to Save Money on Your Energy Bills

Controlling your energy usage at home can be simple. Consider these six ways to lower your monthly bills.

1. Try a home energy monitor

Find out which of your appliances use the most energy, so you can turn them off when they aren’t in use.

2. Use smart power strips

Plug multiple appliances into a single strip that can be shut off with a timer, a sensor, or through a master device like a computer.

3. Install a programmable thermostat

Automate your thermostat to heat and cool according to your schedule.

4. Consider energy-efficient lighting

Compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) or lower wattage bulbs can reduce your energy usage without much extra effort.

5. Invest in a hybrid water heater

This appliance can reduce your water heating costs when you switch from an electric-only heater.

6. Purchase water-efficient showerheads

A showerhead that reduces the flow of water saves a significant amount of energy used to heat water
