Save Your Energy and Save Your Wallet

By admin | March 21, 2012

It’s no secret that energy rates are really on the rise in this country and for some states the kilowatt hours (rate by which some companies charge you) have nearly doubled. Bounce electric rates in Leander have really been good, but what about those of you who might not have access to this service? For those of us who might not have any alternatives, the only way to save the wallet is to save the energy and that means putting a little more effort toward energy conservation, but all this requires is a few changes in your everyday ritual.

For starters, you can be more mindful of your surroundings. If there are any lights on in rooms that you aren’t occupying or using then hit the switch and turn them off. This might be difficult if you have children in the home as they have a tendency to move about the home without shutting off the lights, but a trip to the hardware store can fix that. There are timers and motion detectors you can attach to the lights and while they may not seem like a logical investment, they can really save you some money. Shorter showers might be in order too. And if you find yourself using up a lot of energy on heating or air conditioning you might think about ways to achieve desired effects without relying on these energy-eating implements – heavier drapes, new windows, fans, etc.

In our society, you need energy and you need to power your home – just don’t let it bankrupt you.
