You can increase your energy savings by making small adjustments or opting for smart technology. If your actual goal is to save maximum on utility bills and protect the environment, continue reading.

In this article, we have shared some useful energy saving tips and insights on conserving electricity at home by doing the bare minimum.

 

1. Check Day-To-Day Energy Behaviours

If you are under a short budget and cannot afford to spend more on buying energy-efficient products, this tip is for you. Reducing energy consumption in your home and increasing energy savings can be done by doing the bare minimum.

You can conserve energy by simply switching off lights or appliances not in use. Further, you may save even more by ditching energy-intensive appliances and completing selective tasks manually. For instance, you can easily hang dry your clothes on open instead of opting for a dryer.

Some day-to-day tasks - which are partially dependent on energy sources - can be performed without the use of electricity. Checking your day-to-day energy usage and behaviour can make lots of difference.

One such behaviour adjustment is turning down the thermostat and considering less usage of air conditioning systems. Excessive usage of heating and cooling systems contributes significantly towards your electricity bills. Therefore, reduce the usage of such systems. Figure out where or which appliances use the most electricity in your home and how you can lower the dependency to save maximum on your utility bills.

2. Replace Your Light Bulbs

Are you still using traditional incandescent light bulbs? If yes, you need to replace it with other energy-efficient alternatives. Traditional incandescent light bulbs consume an extensive amount of energy which contributes to higher electricity bills.

Consider replacing them with other energy-efficient alternatives, such as halogen incandescent bulbs, compact fluorescent lights (CFLs), and light-emitting diode bulbs (LEDs). Such energy-efficient solutions consume almost 25 to 80 percent less electricity and can last 3x longer than average light bulbs.

CFLs, LEDs, and halogen incandescent bulbs might be expensive, but they will offer you an excellent return on investment. An investment worth making!

3. Install a Smart Thermostat

One of the common practices among homeowners is using a thermostat during colder months. Thermostat ensures your home stays warmer from the inside in winters. However, constant and excessive usage can significantly contribute to high electricity bills.

If you want to use a thermostat in winter but don't want to pay thousands on your electricity bill, consider installing a smart thermostat. Such programmable thermostats are designed to reduce heating or cooling systems when sleeping. Homeowners can set the thermostat to automatically turn off when no one is around in your home.

Smart thermostats can help you limit or eliminate excessive energy use of heating and cooling systems without HVAC system replacement.

4. Upgrade your HVAC system

Outdated HVAC systems can be a significant contributor to energy bills. Almost six per cent of the total energy used in your home consists of a heating and cooling system. Instead of continuing with your old and outdated HVAC system, consider upgrading it. Upgraded HVAC systems are more efficient than other conventional models.

Buying a new furnace and air conditioner together can ensure efficient performance with maximum energy savings. Also, upgrade your HVAC system by installing ventilation to enhance energy efficiency.
