Even your energy will cost you, there’s 6 ideas to make your electric bills more manageable such as :-

- Do some home energy audit. You can audit it by your own or try to find home energy audit (if there’s free service).
- Switch providers (my country only has one provider. Can’t do this ways.). Some of country has option to purchase electricity. Check the competitor and compare it. If there better fee than switch it now.
- Turn on ceiling fans rather than use air conditioning. It is cost less than air conditioning.
- Change your household duties such as running the dishwasher or washer and dryer on early morning or late evening to minimize the effect on your cooling bills. Only wash full loads of laundry when it is entirely full. You can save more money on your monthly utility bill.
- Some of us always close doors and windows. In this situation try open the doors and windows in the morning and don’t close until the outside temperature reaches the level of your thermostat. Open the doors and windows in the evening to let in the cool night air to decrease usage of air conditioning. Install high-performance windows, screens and films to protect upholstery, wood and artwork from UV rays while saving energy.
- Always turn off the socket when you got out from your home. Home electronics is in “standby” mode use energy to power features like clock displays.
- Replace Lighting with Energy-Efficient Models.
