Do you know how to save money on energy bill?
Listed below are top 16 practices you can apply to save money on energy bill. These lists are not hard at all.
1. Buy energy efficient appliances.
Key Word energy star! They may cost just little more than regular, but energy star appliances save lots of money in long run.
2. Use Sensors to turn off automatically
Motion sensors are the perfect solution for left-on lights. They turn off automatically so you don’t waste electricity.
3. Electric Bulbs - Now LED Bulbs if not CFL bulbs.
It is proven that LED bulbs have longer life and are very energy efficient. Infact in some countries, government is giving some sort of discounts for using LED bulbs.
4. Just turn off when not in use.
If you are not using any electronic gadget, always turn it off, don't let it plugged in. Even better to buy power strip. Then turning off 1 place will switch off all electronics.
5. New filters for AC & Furnace.
Don't hesitate to change .Keep your furnace (gas or electric) tuned up all the time! Changing filter is not difficult. Call experienced handyman when needed instead of you trying to save money but break the AC or furnace instead 🙂
6. Maintenance Air Conditioner.
Every year do schedule maintenance of your AC to renew life of the air conditioner of your home. This also tunes up your AC to save energy bill.
7. Clean Dryer lint from outer opening.
Have you seen the spot from where your dryer air goes out? The mesh or net on that spot will have lints, periodically clean those lint to perfect air flow, hence saving heat! A dirty lint screen can cause the dryer to use up to 30 percent more electricity ($25 per year), according to the Consumer Energy Center. Lint buildup is also a common cause of fires.
Insert brush inside the dryer pipe to clean completely.
8. Energy efficient curtain.
I am surprised many people are not aware there are many energy efficient curtains which saves energy. Scroll below to find compared lists of best curtains which saves you energy bill.
9. Wash clothes with cold water.
Clothes can be washed in cold water, that is not a problem for us. If you have to use warm water, this increases your energy bill.

Use water heater timer to only periodically heat water, not 24/7. If you only use an electric water heater all day, you’re wasting electricity keeping the water hot 365 days a year. To solve that issue, install any electronic timer switch. Timers are available for 120- and 240-volt heaters. They can be programmed for daily or weekly schedules so you only heat the water when you need it. A timer can save you $25 per year.
11. Turn thermostat lower.
Moving your thermostat up or down a few degrees will save you hundreds of dollars each year. Especially if you use electric heat anywhere in your house. Buy these selected thermostat form market. They will save you hundreds every year.
12. Do choirs at night.
At night, energy cost is cheaper. So dishwasher, clothe washing, drying, ironing can be done at night. Basically plan to run these appliances when costs are cheaper. But – this will only work if your utility company is had “dual time” rates. Many have flat rates and it doesn't matter what time you use energy.
13. Air dry your clothes.
I have seen many people air drying clothes on ropes, in USA and in Asia and Europe. You won't have to use dryer if you practice this habit, and saves hundreds every year.
14. Clean or replace HVAC filter monthly.
15. Use power consumption Watt meter tester.
