Stay Safe At Home, Enjoy Smart Tech, And Keep Your Energy Bills Low This Summer!
You might already be worried about your bills this time, especially with the pandemic situation. Everyone is spending more time indoors and it is more than understandable that fans and AC units are going to be running all the time. Here is a cheat sheet on how you can reduce your electricity bills. The first one is to invest on blackout curtains that will ensure that there is no sunlight penetration in the room. Second is to consider switching to LED light bulbs across your home. It is important that you consider sealing off rooms that runs an AC. This will help in the room staying cooler for longer durations.
It is ideal to invest in a smart thermostat such as Google Nest or Ecobee. They help in optimizing your user experience when it comes to controlling the temperature. Using an exhaust fan in the kitchen can help to lower temperatures by 10 degrees. Appliances nowadays also have Energy Star rating that help in deciding which appliance uses how much electricity.
Leaving electronics on all day, even when they’re in sleep mode, draws unnecessary electricity. If you don’t plan on using your television or computer within an hour, turn them off — or use a smart plug that can turn them off for you.
Ensure that you turn off any appliances when they are not in use. Other ways include having chilled beverages instead of hot ones, using cotton sheets on the bedding to ensure that your bed is always cool, using the grill instead of the oven, having an energy audit for home insulation, and keeping windows open to ensure that there is enough air flow.
