Summer is a time to enjoy and cherish while making memories that last a lifetime. You will want to be able to take some time off to travel or simply hang out with family and friends to make those memories. You will need to start setting some money aside to fund those days off from work so you can afford a memorable summer. You will want to find ways to save money so you can put some extra cash towards your vacation fund. An electrician in Miami is here to provide you with some energy savings tips that can save you anywhere from $20 to $50 or more every month. At Elcon Electric, we want to help you have a fabulous summer without completely changing your lifestyle.
*Have ceiling fans and attic fans installed to help take some of the demand off your air conditioner. You can stay relatively cool without cranking up the air conditioner with the help of a fan circulating the air throughout the home.
*Get rid of the incandescent light bulbs in ALL your fixtures—even the garage. CFLs are much more energy efficient and can save you an easy $15 a month on lighting costs. Along with the new bulbs, it is important you make it a habit to turn off lights when not in use. If a light fixture does not accommodate the CFL bulbs, consider having a new one installed by a Miami electrician.
*Reduce phantom power by unplugging game systems, computer, cell phone chargers and other appliances that are not being used. Consider using power strips for areas that have several devices plugged in. It makes it easier to unplug one strip rather than numerous.
These are three ways you can start saving money on your electric bill. You can learn more by calling your power company. If you need ceiling fans installed or want updated light fixtures, give Elcon Electric a call today.
