Summer is coming to a close and we must start to think about winter and what that means for our electricity usage. Despite all the science and plain old guessing, we never know what Mother Nature has in store. It is always better to be safe than sorry and learning how to reduce the energy we use on things we could do without can go a long way to keeping us warm this winter. The following are a few tips on how you can reduce your electricity bill provided by your electrician. Los Angeles residents have been relying on H Electric for years and you will appreciate their knowledge and expertise.
*Have your furnace checked before winter sets in to ensure it is in good working condition. A furnace that isn’t working properly can cost you additional money on your electric bill.
*Have a ceiling fan installed by an electrician. Los Angeles residents can use a ceiling fan to help push the warm air down in the sitting areas. This will help a warm feel warmer and take some of the work off the furnace.
*Keep your windows and doors closed to keep out the cold air. Use heavy curtains to block the cold air from seeping in through the windows. Ensure your windows and doors have a good seal.
*Make it a habit to unplug any electrical equipment you are not using. Toasters, cell phone chargers, televisions and anything else you don’t use all the time. When you are at work or out and about during the day, unplug your smaller electric appliances. Even when these are not in use, they pull phantom energy.
These are just a few things you can start doing now to give yourself every advantage when it comes to reducing your average electric bill. You can find out more by calling H Electric today.
