3 Easy Ways to Reduce Your Energy Consumption

Reducing your energy consumption helps the environment and saves you money. Even if you’re not eco-conscious, your wallet will thank you for applying green habits into your life. Here’s a list of three easy ways you can reduce your energy consumption today.

  1. Dress for the weather.

If it’s freezing outside, there’s no reason you should be walking around your house in shorts and a tank top. Bundle up for the cold weather and take off some layers when it’s hot. This way, you won’t need to waste so much energy fueling your heat or A/C.

  1. Wash your clothes in cold water.

Washing clothes in cold water prevent colors from running and can save hundreds of dollars per year on your electric bill. You can also reduce energy by washing larger loads or reducing the amount of time the washing machine runs.

  1. Install a programmable thermostat.

If you lower your temperature for a few hours a day, you can save $10 or more each month. In less than a year, you could easily make back the money you spent on the thermostat in savings alone.

If your electric bill is higher than you’d hoped, try utilizing these strategies. You’ll be sure to reduce your energy consumption.
