August electricity bills for US consumers jumped the most since 1981, gaining 15.8% from the same period a year ago, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. This has caused many residents in Massachusetts to tighten their belts with many working long hours to pay for the rising bills. However, some simple tips from Nieves Electric which provide a complete electrical repair and maintenance service can help reduce electricity bills.
Switch off standby
Keeping a TV and other appliances on standby mode can waste money. It can add a few hundred dollars each year to an electricity bill. Turning TVs and other devices off can help reduce a household’s electric bill.
Draught-proof windows and doors
It is important during the cold periods of the year to keep the heat in the property. A lot of heat is lost through the windows and doors. By draught proofing the windows and doors it can help reduce the heat being lost and keep the home warmer and reduce energy bills.
Turn off lights
One of the biggest habits people have is to leave lights on in a room when not in use. Turning off the lights when not needed can help to reduce electricity bills. Using energy-saving bulbs can also have a positive impact on reducing electric bills.
Spend less time in the shower
Using a shower for a long period can have a negative effect on an electricity bill. Only using a shower for just four minutes can have a positive impact on saving the household money on their bill.
Fill your dishwasher
It is important to only use a dishwasher when it is full. Using it half full wastes energy.
Have an A/C Unit Service
If an air conditioning unit is not maintained properly then it could result in it becoming faulty and using more electricity than it should be using. This would then increase electricity bills.
