Beat Your Utility Company

Looking to save a few bucks on your utility bills? Here are some simple tips to do just that.

Each day, money runs down your drains and through the power cords of your home. Utilities aren’t cheap and during the hot summer and the cold winter months, utility bills can soar.

Becoming more energy efficient and frugal with your water usage will save you money and help your family become a little greener. And you can put some change back in your pocket with just a few small changes.

Wondering where to start saving? Read this for some energy- and water-saving suggestions.

Drain Your Water Usage

A great place to start saving money on your water bill is in the shower. Limit the length of showers to 10 minutes. It may be hard for your teenage daughter - or even you, but it can be done. As older showerheads can use as much as five gallons of water each minute, head to the hardware store for a low-flow model. These have a forceful flow and emit less than two gallons per minute.

The same goes for toilets. Newer toilets use much less water to flush than older models. Look for the Energy Star logo when purchasing new washers, dishwashers, and toilets. They will use less water to get the exact same job done. While they’ll cost a few extra dollars up front, they’ll pay for themselves and eventually begin putting money in your pocket.

In the kitchen, save water by running the dishwasher only when it’s completely filled with dishes. Also, don’t take up space in the dishwasher with pots, pans, and other large items. Wash them by hand instead.

Have a pool you’ve got to fill? Consider getting a separate meter for outdoor water usage. This way, you don’t have to pay a sewage fee for the pool water, as it never goes into the sewer. Call your utility company for details on getting a second meter installed.

Curb Your Electricity

There are all sorts of ways to lower your electric bill each month. The next time you’re buying an item that uses electricity, look for the Energy Star logo. You’ll find it on appliances, fans, light bulbs, televisions, and more.

In the meantime, remember that hot water doesn’t get hot magically. It takes energy to heat water. Insulating an older water heater with a water heater jacket is a simple project to help you reduce heat loss, save on costs, and be more efficient. Prevent scalding and reduce water-heating costs by lowering the temperature on your water heater to 120 degrees or less. When you’re out of town, turn your water heater off completely. Whenever possible, wash your clothes with cold water. They’ll get clean and you’ll use 90 percent less energy than washing on the warm/hot cycle.

Additionally, change your air return filter regularly to make your heating and air conditioner unit run more efficiently. The unit uses more energy when it has to pull air through a dust-filled filter. Heating and cooling your home is expensive.

If you can tolerate warmer temperatures in the summer and cooler temperatures in the winter, you’ll save the most on your utility bill.

Ceiling fans are another way to keep your home at a comfortable temperature while using less electricity. Keep them on medium in the summer with the air flow directed down and on low in the winter with the air flow pointed up. If you’re gone for the day or on vacation, adjust your thermostat accordingly. Or install a programmable thermostat and only have the heat or air running when you’re home to save even more on power.

Finally, make sure all lights are turned off before you go to bed or head to work. Even unplugging electrical devices when not in use will save you money, as many of them act as slow electrical drains.

Make these small changes around your home and you’ll notice a change in your utility bill and more change in your pocket!
