Every month the bills come in. It normally is not a big deal in our house, but for some reason, the electric bill this month was double last months. What?!?!?!
Thought 1: It is winter so it is understandable for there to be more heat used.
Problem: Last month was winter too.
Thought 2: Someone is stealing our electricity!
Problem: We live in the country and it would be more of a pain for someone to run any sort of line than to just use their own.
Thought 3: We must have lights on and the bulbs are burnt so we do not even know and are just wasting energy.
Problem: I just went through and changed all the light bulbs in the house.
So, out came the internet search to find what on earth we need to do to reduce the energy bill.
Recommendation 1: Conduct an Energy Audit
Go through the house and find what you are doing with and using energy for...
Recommendation 2: Make Cost Effective Adjustments
The first thing you can do is make some living condition adjustments without spending money on additional products.
Recommendation 3: Make your Home Energy Efficient
If you have gone through and made some lifestyle adjustments, but want more, have no fear. You can invest some time, money, and effort to improve your homes energy consumption. I highly recommend doing at least one of these actions. I love using these products and have noticed immediate differences.
