Saving Electricity And Money At Home

Saving electricity and in the process your money at home can easily be done with a little bit of discipline, so it is surprising how few people do it.

One of the main ways that you can save electricity and therefore reduce your bills is by means of one simple thing: not using standby on your TV but by switching it off when not in use.

This quick and easy action which takes just a few seconds can save you tens of pounds each year, money that could be spent elsewhere.

In addition, good habits are easily acquired but save energy and time for your lifetime. One of the main ones is switching off lights when you are not in the room, and only using appropriate lighting.

A large number of people will leave lights on through the house when it gets dark, both upstairs and downstairs, but you can't be in more than one place at once so this is a waste of electricity and increases your bills.

So get into the habit of switching off the lights when you are not in the room.

Also consider using appropriate lighting so rather than having full lights on you may prefer a softer feel using lamps and other lights with lower wattage bulbs to reduce overall energy consumption.

These are just a couple of ideas for how to save electricity around the home - any appliance that has a standby mode will still be using considerable electrical energy over the course of the year so turn off those HIFIs, games consoles and other items with a standby mode for maximum benefit for your energy consumption and your back pocket!
