Reduce Electricity Consumption

Modern life is packed with conveniences that require a steady supply of electricity.  As comfort seekers, Americans demand optimal levels of light, heat, cooling and entertainment.  Once the electric bill arrives, pain in the household budget requires significant adjustments to daily habits to realize savings.

  • Update appliances – HVAC equipment has been upgraded with each new model since furnaces and air conditioners were invented.  Older appliances that are responsible for heating and cooling the living space will consume much more electricity.  Refrigerators and freezers use less energy than ever before.  The homeowner is wise to maintain full food storage areas to enhance efficiency.
  • Look for hidden consumers – Computers, stereo equipment and LED televisions will draw power whenever the plug is in the outlet.  Surge protectors should be turned off when these power consumers are not in use.  Unplug all appliances when not in use.
  • Insulate against the elements – Heat and cold outside should be prevented from entering the house around pipes, windows and doors.  Efforts to caulk and insulate can improve living comfort while reducing the amount of electricity required to maintain a consistent indoor temperature.
