Here are a few simple ways to reduce your electric bill.

Western NY is having a heat wave right now – high 80’s all week! It’s great to see summer extended well into September however, it’s also means higher electric bills due to cooling. There are tons of articles on the internet on ways to reduce your utilities in many creative ways but we wanted to do a quick post with a few ways that you can do now to reduce your electric bill!

Here are a few simple, cost effective ways to reduce your electric bill.

1. Upgrade your lighting.

The POLAR LED Light with a motion sensor.

LED lighting is coming way down in price but if those can’t make it into the budget, do your best to get compact florescent bulbs (CFL’s) in every light fixture.
CFL’s use half the energy as a traditional bulb. LED are half that of CFL’s. Also, consider using timers or motion sensors in laundry rooms and basements so your lights only stay on for as long as you need them! We have been testing out these POLAR LED light bulbs with a motion sensor attached here at the office and they are cheap and work well. Solar lights for the garden and outside walkways don’t cost you a penny on your electric bill and can be very effective!

2. Upgrade to Energy Star Appliances.

Your appliances consume a lot of energy! Keep en eye out for the Energy Star label. Energy Star appliances are much more energy efficient than the standard options out there. ENERGY STAR certified refrigerators are required to use about 20% less energy than non-certified models. Choosing a new certified model over a standard model and cut your energy bills by more than $125 over the lifetime of your fridge. If you want cooling in your home, pick up an Energy Star window air conditioner. They have come down in price over the past few years and are at least 15% more energy efficient than the standard wall units available.

3. Get your home air sealed and insulated!

Air seal the holes so your cool air doesn’t escape and insulate it so the house stays cooler longer. (This goes the same for heat in the winter!) Air sealing and Insulating your house is one of the most cost effective things you can do and it has so many other added benefits – sound barriers, reduces pests from coming in and adds comfort.
