Let’s talk money. It is one of those subjects that is typically discussed in polite company, but everybody faces the same ordeal. No matter how much you have, it just seems like you could always use just a little bit more. Whether you want a few more dollars to buy the kids that special something they have been wanting or maybe you had an unexpected expense come up. An electrician in Los Angeles has some tips to help you save a few dollars every month on your electric bill. At H Electric, the team is ready to talk with you about any other electrical problems or concerns you have.
1-Start with the obvious and make a concerted effort to shut off lights, televisions, iPod docking decks and so forth when they are not in use.
2-Replace any of the older incandescent bulbs (that have since been phased out) with CFLs or LED bulbs. This can save you an easy $20 or so on your electric bill.
3-Switch to Energy Star appliances. You don’t have to do this all at once. Slowly replace an outdated appliance with a more energy efficient one when the budget allows.
4-Only wash full loads of laundry and air-dry whenever possible. There are plenty of portable racks you can use indoors, use a clothes line or even on the patio of an apartment or condo.
5-Have a ceiling fan installed by a Los Angeles electrician to help cut down your heating and cooling costs. The fan rotates the air you are paying to heat or cool and reduces the need for your heater or air conditioner.
6-Learn more about phantom power and how you can stop it by unplugging any appliance, charger or other electronic device when it is not in use.
