4 Tips To Saving Energy And Money This Winter

4 Tips To Saving Energy And Money This Winter

Tis the season for Christmas lights, cozy fires, and, in Southern California, the only time of year that we may need to use our heaters. After all the holiday spending, our energy bill usually leaves us with a massive headache. 

SoCal Power companies have even issued energy conservation alerts in light of these demands. So how can you do your part to save energy and, in turn, a little extra money too? Here are some tips...

1. Most of us put our holiday lights on a timer, but what about your electronics? We're all guilty of leaving our devices plugged in. Unplug devices when you're done using them or set them on a timer. Leaving items like your blowdryer, toaster, or Keurig plugged in takes up energy. So unplug. 

2. Switch to LEDs and turn off the lights. Again, so many of us tend to leave lights on throughout the house unnecessarily. If you don't already use LEDs, it's time to make the switch. LED lights now come in all shades of colors so switch out your bulbs and consider replacing your Christmas lights next year.

3. Check to make sure vents are open and clean in order to circulate air well. A dirty vent blocks air from being pushed out taking more time and, therefore, more energy to heat your home.

4. Double check that thermostat. Make sure it is set to a schedule that's running as needed.

Following these tips not only helps with energy conservation - something we all should be cognizant of - but it can also help reduce the cost of your heating bill saving you some extra cash.
