I was absolutely shocked at my electric bill this month, so I sat down and made a list of things I will do to see if I can get it down, this list is now posted on the refrigerator, so I can see it every day. Maybe we can all save by doing these things. Turn off lights we are not using: this is a no-brainer and certainly one of the easiest measures of all. It is the key step to achieving a conservation mind-set. Just flipping a switch stops the waste of power.
Cut back on the lights we do use: I'm the worst when it comes to turning on all of the lights in the room. We will be opting for lamps and task lighting instead of general room lighting whenever possible.
May I suggest putting up a clothesline? Most clothes look fine when line dried. If you are looking at lots of snow this winter, put up a line in the house. You can hang them in the morning and they'll be dry by afternoon. Plus your interior air will be nice and moist, not dried out by the heater.
Not only turn computer off but unplug it too. Safer too I unplug washer/dryer , microwave also when not in use. seeing a difference in power bill
I ALSO HANG ALL MY SHIRTS ON HANGERS TO DRY. IT PUTS MOISTURE IN THE AIR,LEAVES A GOOD SCENT FROM THE FABRIC SOFTENER AND CUTS DOWN ON MY POWER BILL
I also want to add that when I am finished with making the coffee; I transfer it to an insulated carafe. I can then turn off the coffee maker.
