Save Money on Energy - Michelle Cantrell & AssociatesSaving energy whenever you can is important to reducing environmental impact, and it can also have a significant impact on your electricity bills. According to Energy.gov, there are several simple solutions to help save you energy and money: 

 1. Heating water can be a significant expense. Try using less hot water by washing your clothes in cold water or installing low-flow shower heads. 

2. A power strip can help reduce your electricity bill up to $100 a year. By plugging in all of your electronic devices and turning it off when not in use, you can reduce phantom load – the power a device consumes when still plugged in, yet powered off. 

3. Use fans to cut down on heating and cooling expenses. In warmer months, the effect of windchill from the circulating air will help reduce cooling costs. Having your fan spin counter-clockwise in the winter will push warm air down and heat rooms more efficiently. 

4. Use sunlight to your advantage. Keep curtains open on windows that get direct sunlight to help heat your home in the winter.
