5 Ways To Save On Utilities

Fall is knocking on the door. That means that pretty soon we'll be turning on the heat. Early sunsets mean that we will be using more electricity.  Less outdoor activity means that our utility bills will rise substantially. How can you best hold down some of these rising costs? Here are some ways to save on utilities.

1.  If you don't already have one, invest in a programmable thermostat. For all you techies, they now make a wi-fi model that can be controlled from anywhere  as well as the standard 7-day  hard-wired one. For less than $100, you will make up the cost in energy savings within the first year.  Set temperatures higher for the times when you are home - 68 degrees for maximum benefit -- and lower when you are away or asleep.

2.  Most gas or electric companies will perform an energy audit free of charge. This will tell you where your energy costs are disappearing to.  Sometimes it's as simple as putting weather stripping around doors to the outside. Sometimes the fix is more expensive, but at least you will know what you need to do to shore up the energy losses.

3.  If you're still burning incandescent bulbs, switch to the new LED's or at the least the CFL's or saving on your electric bill.

4.  Buy smart surge protectors that automatically turn off appliances when they're not in use. This helps reduce the loss of electricity called "phantom load," power that is used by appliances even when they are turned off but still plugged in.

5.  Turn your water heater down to 120 degrees. Water heaters are one of the big power users in your home. By decreasing the temperature, it reduces the amount of energy used saving you money. Chances are you won't even notice the difference between 120 degrees and 140 degrees.

Happy Savings.
