Want to save money in 2013 on your postpaid and prepaid electricity? Then maybe its time we made our New Year’s energy resolutions. Here are a few to get you started:
1. Save on Prepaid Electricity with Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs
Replace all of your old-fashioned incandescent bulbs with these energy saving bulbs. These curly-cue cuties will save you a bundle. Start out by replacing the lights in the rooms you use most: hallways, bathrooms, family rooms, etc.
2. Save on Prepaid Electricity by Unplugging the Beer Fridge
These small refrigerators tucked away in garages, workshops and home offices are energy eaters and are rarely in use.For instance, if you have a six-pack in the basement fridge all year long but only are in your basement a few days a month, move those beers to the kitchen fridge and unplug the other refrigerator until needed.
3. Save on Prepaid Electricity by Reducing Your Phantom Loads
This is so easy! Use power strips on your entertainment system and your computer set up. Turn off these items at the power strip when not in use. This can reduce your prepaid energy consumption by as much as 20%.
4. Save on Prepaid Electricity by increasing your Attic Insulation
Make a trip to the store and buy a few bags of loose insulation. Scatter it in your attic. It will help reduce cold in the winter and heat in the summer. All of which means a lower electric bill.
