Every winter season, most people struggle with high energy bills. It’s possible to keep using heaters and electric blankets while paying less than usual.
In order to reduce your energy waste this winter, learn about the vampire power and the way you can defeat it:
If you don’t want to overpay for electricity, consider using fluorescent light bulbs instead of simple incandescent ones. They cost a little bit more, but you will have a chance to save some money in the long run.
It’s important to mention that fluorescent light bulbs usually last longer.
Using power strips
It’s been proven that using power strips helps to cut down energy costs. So, make sure to connect to it all the devices you often use. Every time you go out, just turn off the power strip instead of unplugging one device after another.
Keep in mind that appliances such as phones, DVD, printer, laptop can be the reasons for your high energy bill.
Instead of keeping your heater on all the time, consider installing a smart thermostat. It will allow you to control the temperature in your house in the distance. All you need is to connect your mobile phone to the heating system (yes, it is possible these days!).
Once you have a smart thermostat, you will be able to turn off and on the heating system whenever you want. For instance, you don’t really need it on while you are not at home.
