Posted on January 8th, 2016 by BlueMountain
Does your bank account seem a little bit empty now that the holiday season is over? If so, it is important to look for alternative methods that will help you save money. Below are some tips that will help you reduce your utility bills.
- A dirty or clogged air filter does more than prohibit airflow. It can also be the reason why your utility bills are so high. To prevent this from happening, remember to change air filters once a month or as needed.
- Do you have an old school thermostat in your home? If so, it’s time to upgrade to a programmable thermostat. Over the course of a year, it could save you up to 30% on your energy costs!
- The temperature of your water heater should be 120 degrees or less. That way, you will have access to warm water without the risk of scalding your hands.
- Have a low-flow shower head installed in your shower. They are easy to install and can be purchased from your local hardware store. Doing this can save you up to $100 each year on your utility bills!
