Make sure you're changing all filters and keeping vents clean. Dust and dirt can build up over time and restrict airflow, making your HVAC system work harder than it needs to.
Ceiling and tower fans during the summer months will help you with lowering your bills. A tower fan is far less expensive to run than your air conditioning (AC) unit.
Tip #4: Get Into The Habit of Unplugging Things When You're Done Using Them
Appliances like TVs, computers, and chargers still use power even when they're turned off, so unplugging them will help reduce your bill and save energy at the same time.
Tip #5: Invest in Blackout Curtains – Save On Heating Costs
Blackout curtains block out light from your windows, which will keep your home nice and cool without having to turn on the AC as often. You will also be able to sleep more soundly with less light coming into your room.
Incandescent bulbs were great for many decades. We now have LED bulbs that last longer, produce less heat and use far less energy. You will spend more money on LED bulbs, yet the savings can be seen immediately.
