1. Unplug appliances that are not being used like the TV, computer, washing machine and the likes. Being on standby mode still consumes energy, so it would be better to unplug when not in use. When purchasing, it would be best to check for energy saver appliances.
2. Identify power guzzlers in the house. Replacing or using them efficiently helps cut costs.
3. Compare energy plans by comparing companies to see if you can get a cheaper deal.
4. Think of switching a hot water system from electric to gas or solar heating systems.
5. Replacing regularly used lights with LED’s. LED’s use only a tenth of the energy you’re using for halogen or incandescent bulbs.
