Let’s talk dollars and cents. Would you like to learn a few tricks that will put some extra dollars in your pocket? If you are ready to make some changes in your life that will save you a little money on your electric bill, you are in luck. An electrician in Glendale has some key tips to help you reduce your electric bill. You can count on H Electric to provide you with advice on how you can do your part for the environment by cutting down on your electric usage and your pocketbook.
1-Put an egg timer in the bathroom. Start timing your showers. Try shaving a few minutes off your current shower time to reduce your hot water usage.
2-Invest in a drying rack to air dry your laundry. You probably won’t be able to dry all of your clothes this way, but even cutting back on a couple of loads per week will help. If you do dry your clothes, use the fluff cycle.
3-Turn down your water heater by a couple of degrees. You won’t use the water at that temperature so it doesn’t make sense you would waste the money heating the water just to cool it down.
4-Have a ceiling fan installed by an electrician. Glendale homeowners can use the ceiling fan in the summer and winter to help reduce heating and cooling costs. The fans will circulate the cool air in the summer time and push the warm air that rises to the ceiling down in the winter.
5-New light fixtures are also being made to work with the more energy efficient CFLs. You can also have an electrician install a dimmer switch. This will allow you to control how much light is being shed. There is no reason to burn a bulb at its brightest if you only need a little light.
