If your energy costs seem to be getting higher and higher each month, you are not alone. Many homeowners are frustrated by increasing bills, but you don’t have to just sit back and hand over your hard-earned dollars. Instead, take an active role in lowering your energy bills by implementing some of these ideas.
Automate the Temperature Inside Your Home
You can purchase a programmable thermostat for under $100, and this little device can have a big impact on your bills. A programmable thermostat takes the guesswork out of temperature control. There’s no need to keep your house toasty warm during the winter days when no one is home. Conversely, you don’t need to keep your house as cool during the summer when everyone is out and about. Instead of remembering to turn the temperature up and down every time you leave the house, you can program your thermostat to automatically adjust the temperatures for you.
Make It Fun
You know you need to reduce your bills, but you can’t do it alone. Your efforts will be much more effective if you have every member of your family on board. Most kids and teens won’t be immediately excited when you tell them about your goals, but they’ll be all in if you find ways to make the process fun.
If you have younger children in your home, they will love feeling like they have important jobs. For instance, you could implement the “Light Policeman” whose job it is to go around the house and turn off any lights in empty rooms. Older kids and teens are often motivated by incentives. Let the family know that you’ll put any energy bill savings into a special fund to use for a fun family night!
