Simple Power Saving Tips to Make Electricity Potentially More Affordable
- Assessing your standby power usage. One of the most effective ways to reduce energy consumption is by paying attention to how much standby power is consumed around the house each day. Most homeowners don’t realize that appliances plugged in all day long are using standby power minute by minute. When an appliance is on standby mode, it will still use energy, even when it’s not in use. Unplugging an appliance like a clock radio can conserve roughly 2.7 W of electricity; unplugging a larger appliance like a computer can save 14.5 W of electricity!
- Using energy-efficient globes. Synergy encourages energy customers to make the switch from incandescent to CFL globes. The reason? CFL globes exert far less heat compared to traditional globes, while providing the same amount of light for a third of the energy. On top of that, CFL globes last up to 10 times longer. While they may cost more initially, they will quickly pay for themselves in lower quarterly electricity bills.
- Using a microwave oven. Whenever possible, instead of heating up a large cooking range, cook your food quickly in the microwave. Microwaves will reduce total energy consumption by up to two thirds and will provide a hot meal in minutes. Using less energy for basic food preparation will save you money on each quarterly electricity bill by making a wise selection in the appliance that you use for cooking.
In addition to putting these power saving tips into practice, you can potentially save substantial sums of money on annual energy with a quick electricity comparison today!
