How to Lower Energy Bills

Energy bills can be very high even during the summer. If many appliances are in a property, such as refrigerators and air conditioning units in every room, energy bills will understandably be very expensive. When wanting to lower energy bills, here’s how this can be achieved:


Only turn on air conditioning when it is actually required

If an older air conditioning unit is used in a family home or a business’s premises, a lot of electricity is required. By opening windows and turning off machines that produce considerable heat, a property will be cooler without having to use an air conditioning unit.

Don’t operate a dishwasher until it is full

If a dishwasher is used when it is hardly full, a lot of energy will be wasted. Before turning a dishwasher on, check that no other items can be put into it. Although many people rely on a dishwasher, plates and other cutlery can be cleaned in a sink. As only a small amount of gas is required in order to heat tap water, a lot of money can be saved. If a dishwasher is hardly used or not at all, energy bills will be reduced further.

Keep curtains closed at night

When temperatures drop at night, keep curtains closed. When a radiator or an electric heater is turned on, heat can escape through windows, in particular if they only have a single pane of glass. To further reduce energy bills, install thick curtains. When heat is produced by a radiator or an electric heater, thick curtains keeps it inside. Even when a heater is turned on during the day, curtains can still be closed in order to save money. When a property has single pane windows, thicker curtains mustn’t be left open because heat is able to escape. Although it may seem odd to have curtains closed during the day, a homeowner will be saving money. If a property isn’t south facing, it can be naturally cold because it doesn’t get a lot of sunlight. So, when a radiator or a heater is actually turned on, curtains will prevent heat from escaping through windows.
