It seems like daily we are getting alerts on our phones that it’s going to be another day with low temperatures. Although the holidays are officially over, winter season is still in full force and trying to keep warm can easily take a toll on your wallet. For those looking to save money on their energy bill, we found a bunch of great tips at thesimpledollar.com and have included a few of the tips below:
- If you have an attic, you want to check that it has proper insulation. As we all know, heat rises and by confirming that there is a sufficient amount of insulation you can easily save on your energy bill.
- Update your home to include a programmable thermostat. This allows you to set the thermostat to go up and down depending on the time of the day, who is home, etc. You will likely not even notice the changes, but your bill will reflect it.
- Replace your air filters regularly. When air filters are clean it allows air to flow unencumbered through them. This keeps energy levels down and is a healthy rule of thumb anyway.
- Make sure all the vents around your house are clean and away from objects that could block the air flow into your house. Blocked air vents only frustrate you when you wonder why you’ve cranked the heat up three times and can’t tell the difference. Simply rearranging some furniture can make a big difference.
- Replace all your traditional light bulbs with LED or CFL lights. These cost more than regular light bulbs, but they are worth it in the long run as they last longer and use less energy.
Simple changes like these can have a drastic impact on your wallet and after all the Christmas shopping hustle, who couldn’t benefit from saving money?
