Spring is an excellent time of year to give your pocketbook a break. The mild temperatures do not typically require you to run your air conditioner or heater on a regular basis. Getting the electric bill for April and May is always a bit of a nice surprise and a relief. What if you could experience those smaller electric bills all year round? An electrician in Salt Lake City has some valuable tips for you to use to help reduce your electric bill anywhere from $10 to $50 every month. You can count on Captain Electric, LLC to help you save a little money every month.
1-Make a concerted effort to shut off all appliances, lights and other energy using gadgets like iPod docks when not in use.
2-Replace all of your outdated incandescent bulbs with CFLs. This is a quick way to save about $20 a month.
3-Have a ceiling fan installed by an electrician. Salt Lake City residents can save money on their heating and cooling bills with the installation of a fan.
4-Unplug all computers, cell phone chargers, gaming consoles and other items you are not using when you leave the house. This cuts down on phantom power. Even if an appliance is off or a cell phone is not attached to the other end of a charger, it is still pulling a current.
5-Ask each member of your family to reduce their shower time by 2 minutes. This can save you about $15 a month by reducing how much your hot water heater needs to work to heat water.
If you have any questions about any of these items, your Salt Lake City Electrician is here to help. If you would like to schedule a ceiling fan installation, give Captain Electric, LLC a call today and get started saving money on your electric bill.
