With winter on full blast, it's sometimes difficult to keep track of your expenditures. Whenever you're facing this issue, it is important to look at the little things, like your electric bill. It may not be so little when you look at it. Because of this we gathered 3 tips to keep your electric bill friendly, now ... And for the upcoming year.
Check Your Water Heater's Thermostat
Constantly cranking your thermostat up or down makes your heater work harder. Every, single, time.
It's best to check it, and maintain at a specific temperature. Specially when it comes to your water heater. It can bring many savings for your electric bill.
Turning it off when you're gonna be out of your home for more than 8 hours is your best alternative, since it will not have to be constantly working to heat up sitting water. When looking to save some money on your bills, this is the best and easiest way to start.
Wash Your Clothes on Cold
Not only is this alternative eco-friendly, better for your clothes, but it also saves you money. Yes... Money!
For the most part most of us tend to wash clothes in warm or hot settings. Which honestly doesn't make a lott of sense since clothes can't feel temperature.
Doing this will save you energy once more, since it is tied directly to your water heater. Cutting off on this may just allow you to take an extra trip at the end of the year. Often it is thought of that saving small amounts of money is not worth it. However we believe that every single penny counts, and if there is a way that can make it happen without bothering anyone, then why not?
