Simple Tips Than Can Help Lower Energy Bills

by Hylton 72 Degrees Heating-Air Conditioning & Plumbing
As a homeowner we constantly look for ideas that can help put more money into our savings. Extra money that will be enough to plan for that next home project like a new kitchen or a beautiful backyard or even a very nice and relaxing vacation. There are ways and simple ideas that can assist you to lower your monthly bills.
1.Fix the fixable

With our busy life from picking children up from school and driving them to their sport activity and focusing on our work we sometimes don't have enough time to fix things inside the house.  A dripping faucet should not be overlooked by the homeowner.  It can be a simple problem that requires a simple solution or it might need a professional plumbing service. Correcting the problem  immediately  can really help you save time and money.  The Water Works Association indicates that you can absolutely  loose more than 8 gallons of clean water from a slow dripping faucet. The gallons of water that are lost and wasted will add up to your bills at the end of the month.

2.Reduce shower time

Everybody in your household can easily follow this simple tip. Reducing the shower time can really save you a lot, not just on your water bills but also on your electric bills.  Most of  us also enjoy having a warm and relaxing bath every day after a very hectic schedule.  You can bring your energy bills down by reducing your bath time.  Instead of doing it daily, maybe you just want to try every other day or maybe once a week.

You can also install low flowing shower headsand  if your water heater is ready to be replaced consider a tankless water  heater system, this will help you cut your water bills.

3.Lower the temperature of your water tank

The Energy Department indicates that for every 10 degree you reduce your water heater temperature you can save up to 3 to 5 percent on your monthly bills.  They recommend that you keep the temperature to 120 degrees.
4.Use your dishwasher effectively

Scraping left overs from your plates before loading it, will help your dishwater run effectively and efficiently.  Only run it when full and make sure you check the different settings on your machine to get the optimal performance.

5.Heat  traps for water tank

Another inexpensive way  that can help you save is installing heat traps for your water heater.These  are valves that prevent your heated water from flowing out of your tank.  Most new water heaters have heat traps already. If you don't know if your system needs one,check with your local plumbing company.They can easily answer your questions.

6.Check your washing machine

We can save money  as well by making sure our washing machine runs efficiently.  Make sure to load the machine appropriately.  Regularly check or inspect hoses for signs of wear and tear or signs of water leakage.  Another simple tip is to clean the inside once a month.


Hire a reputable company that can provide maintenance service to your Heating and air conditioning unit or your water heater. A regular inspection and maintenance by a professional can provide you information and they can alert you if there's a potential problem with your units.

8.Consider energy efficient appliances

If your appliances are getting old and constantly need repairs, maybe you need to consider replacing it with an energy efficient appliance.  From a dishwasher that uses less energy and water to a water heater that needs less electricity.
