How to Get Better Control Over Your Home’s Electricity Consumption

Getting control of your home’s electricity consumption can help you be more environmentally friendly as well as save you money. To do this you can use efficient light bulbs, install a smart thermostat, and install a new water heater. Making changes doesn’t need to happen all at once to be effective.

How to Get Better Control Over Your Home’s Electricity Consumption: Use Efficient Light Bulbs

Energy efficient light bulbs will use less power and help to save you money. These bulbs are also high performance, so can be enjoyed just as much, if not more, than your current bulbs. Efficient bulbs use less wattage, and a single bulb may not seem to make a big impact, but when you change the bulbs in your entire home, that is a lot of energy saved. These bulbs also have a longer lifespan which means you will be buying less bulbs over time. You can start small by switching a few bulbs at a time.

Install a Smart Thermostat

A smart thermostat can save you money by automatically adjusting the temperature in your home. Your smart thermostat can learn the patterns of your home and will adjust the temperature as needed for when you are home or away. These work the best when they are programmed. When first getting the thermostat, adjusting as you come and go will help the system learn your preferences which it will continue to do based on your preferences. This can help you save you money on your heating and cooling

How to Get Better Control Over Your Home’s Electricity Consumption: Install a New Water Heater

Your water heater contributes to 18% of your home’s energy consumption. This problem can be helped with turning down the temperature of your shower, but it can also be helped by installing a new water heater altogether. Installing a new water heater allows you the chance to install a more efficient one. There are many new models available that consume less energy such as tankless or electric water heaters. You can also make your current water heater more efficient by turning down the temperature so that it doesn’t use so much energy to heat. You can also utilize insulated pipes to increase efficiency.

 

Changing everything in your home to be more efficient isn’t realistic. Instead, make small changes to help reduce your energy consumption. You can start by using efficient light bulbs, installing a smart thermostat, and installing a new water heater, but don’t stop there!
