  1. If not properly monitored, electricity becomes expensive. 

    Here are some ways you can reduce the cost of electricity in your home:

    • Use led bulbs: using led bulbs can reduce the amount of power you consume for lighting by up to 75 percent.
    • Lower your thermostat’s degree when you are not at home: keeping your thermostat at a lower degree when you are not at home can reduce the amount of power consumed by your thermostat.
    • Use cold water for laundry or line dry your laundry.
    • Eliminate Phantom power: phantom power is the amount of power your electronic devices consume when you are not using them but keeps them plugged into a power source.
    • Use a microwave instead of an electronic toaster when you want to heat your food.
    • Check out for door and window air leak: air leak in the windows and doors could raise your electricity bill by up to 25 percent
    • Avoid leaving your refrigerator door open for long.
    • Eliminate or limit the number of times you use a dishwasher
