Are you frustrated with rising electrical costs? If your bills have been climbing in recent years, then you’re probably searching for creative, cost effective methods of saving energy. At Mr. Electric of Fort Worth, we enjoy helping our North Texas clients find ways to improve the safety and efficiency of their electrical systems. We offer a large variety of residential and commercial electrical services that can help you save more money long term. Here are just a few ways that you can reduce their monthly utility expenses.
Insulate Your Water Heater
Proper winterization is important when it comes to your water heater system. When the temperature begins to dip, your unit must work at maximum capacity to make your water warm enough for showers and baths. Using an insulated blanket for your electric water heater can save your family up to $50 per year.
Turn Off Lights and Unplug Electronics When Not in Use
Lights and electronics also require a lot of power. Be sure to switch the lights off when leaving a room and invest in energy saving LED bulbs where possible. Reduce more energy by powering down or unplugging computers, televisions, video game systems and other electronics when you are finished using them.
Choose a Moderate Temperature Setting in the Summer and Winter
Changing your temperature settings by 10 – 15 degrees can reduce your monthly utilities up to 10 percent, especially during the height of winter or summer when extreme weather is most likely to occur. Try to leave your indoor temperature around 68 degrees in the fall and winter, and 78 degrees in spring and summer for maximum savings.
Invest in Whole Home Surge Protection
Power surges can be extremely damaging. The excessive energy can cause permanent damage to devices, equipment and appliances. By investing in whole home surge protection, you can help prevent such issues and have peace of mind that your most expensive investments will continue working their best for years to come.
Use Smart Technology
Monitoring your HVAC system, lights and electronics can be challenging and time consuming. Thankfully, advancements in science and manufacturing has made incredible smart technology widely available to homes across the world. Smart thermostats, ceiling fans, lighting systems, water usage monitoring and many other devices make it simple and easy to control your electronics and observe important data, even when you’re away from home. Take advantage of these innovative technologies and integrate them into your existing electrical system.
