Tips To Save Electricity - Quick Ways For Saving Electricity

By Matthew S. Leverton

If you use a lot of energy in your house, you probably know that this is very expensive. Apart from that, it is polluting the earth as well! That's why I will show you a few quick and easy energy saving methods that you can use in your everyday life.

Maybe it is not the first thing you would look at, but the biggest saver of energy (and therefore money) is the use of a renewable energy source. Nowadays it is quite possible to apply renewable solutions at home! As you know, renewable energy is made without the use of fossil fuels, so it is absolutely the "greenest" way to go.

The easiest form of renewable energy that you can use at home is DIY Solar Power. Nowadays it is cheap, safe and simple to install a solar power system in your home or garden, so if you are serious about the environment (and about your money too) this could be a very nice opportunity for you.

But if you don't want to switch to renewable energy, there are still other things you could do to use less non-renewable energy. We will show you a few points where you can help save the environment, and lower your bills as well:

1. Lights: You can save a lot of energy if you use CFL (fluorescent light) bulbs. They are scientifically proven to use way less energy than conventional bulbs. If you would change all the lights in your house to CFL, you would really see your energy bill getting lower (meaning mother earth gets a bit greener).

2. Car: Of course this is a big energy waster already. Whenever possible, try not to use one (but that's easier said than done). However, if you must use a car then look out with your air conditioner. This device REALLY uses a lot of electricity, so set it as low as possible.

3. Washing machine: First, when you buy a washing machine look closely at the energy labels. They will tell you if it is a energy saving or wasting machine. A good washing machine will pay back in lower energy bills! Also, try to only use a washer if you have a load of clothes to wash, not just one little dress.

4. Computer: There are lots of people (you maybe?) that leave their computer monitor switched on, even when they switch off the computer itself. Of course this is absolutely unnecessary. What's more easy then switching off your monitor when you don't use it? And you'd be surprised at the amount of electricity you can save when you remember to do this.

That's it for today. I hope you learned something new to help you change your level of energy use, and do your part in the battle against pollution! If you haven't done so yet, I would advise you to take a quick look at renewable energy, this is by far the best way to do some good for the planet and for your budget at the same time.
