While fossil fuels are less expensive to run the nation on currently, what happens when we have no more "fuel" to use? And more importantly, if it is less expensive to operate on, why are our rates continuing to increase? No one seems to be asking that question! So, what can you do to lower your electricity bills and tell your power company just where to go with their increasing rate hikes? First, determine what is impacting your power bill the most in your home or business. According to Energy Star, heating and cooling accounts for 40-60% of your power bill. So, by focusing on that alone, you can make a huge dent in lowering that energy bill.
Here are the top 4 appliances that consume a lot of electricity:1. Air Conditioners Although some new air conditioners are energy efficient, this appliance is considered to be wasteful if not maintained properly. Dirt and other nature's wrath like rust, dust and algae can cause the engine to work hard, thus demand for energy is high. 2. Heat Pumps Like the mechanism of air conditioners, this machine uses a lot of energy to transfer heat from its source to a desired place to heat. The only difference is that, this machine makes or produces heat, thus it requires a tremendous amount of energy. 3. Refrigerators Refrigerators are known to have a constant cooling mechanism that is powered by a powerful engine. According to some researchers, refrigerators are 1 of the top appliances that wastes energy. Every time it is opened, refrigerators waste 7% of energy. In one year, this will sum up to 120 kWh waste energy from the refrigerator alone. 4. Swimming Pool Pumps While swimming pools are a ton of fun, they can be costly to maintain. Your swimming pool pump must run on average 10-12 hours EVERY day. Due to the daily run time, this means alot of energy is adding up on that bill. But, if you aren't keen on filling in that swimming pool, keeping the pool pump running is vital to maintaining the pool properly. So once you know what's costing you so much money? What can you do about it? You can replace light bulbs and upgrade that old refrigerator. But upgrading to all new appliances or getting a newer more efficient Central A/C system is EXPENSIVE right?
