Money Saving Electrical Tips
Doelp Electric is always trying to save our customers money and reduce their carbon footprint at the same time. Here are some money saving electrical tips to save your family or business money everyday.
1.) Optimum Lighting
If money is tight and you want to decrease your energy bill, there are some simple ways to reduce your electric bill. One simple way to save energy is to avoid turning on all of your recessed lighting if all you want to do is read or watch TV. Use task fixtures in the form of table lamps, floor lamps, or swing-arm lamps, so you can see what you are doing with out illuminating unused spaces in your home unnecessarily. Call Doelp Electric to ask about outlet locations to ensure optimum lighting placement.
2.) Energy Saving Light Bulbs
Save money by using LED bulbs instead of florescent bulbs. LED bulbs can not only save energy, but will also save you money in the long run. If you have questions concerning LED bulbs, contact Doelp Electric today.
3.) Ceiling Fans
Think ceiling fans are just for the summer? By turning your ceiling fan to a low setting, the fan will help to push the warm air. As the warm air rises, the fan helps to push the warm air back down around the room as to better ventilate and optimize your house’s heat capacity. During the summer, you can turn your fan to counter clockwise to cool down the rooms as the temperature rises. If you need a ceiling fan installed, call Doelp Electric.
4.) Dimmer Switches
Dimmer Switches allow you to use less light when needed. The best places for dimmer switches are in areas such as bedrooms, dining rooms or kitchens. If you need a quote for a dimmer switch, call Doelp Electric.
5.) Turn off lights
This is the simplest money saving electrical tip, yet it can save you lots of money in the long run. Get in the habit of turning off lights in a room when you are done using it. Although it may take some time to get used to doing, your electric bill will thank you. Doelp Electric offers lighting design that offers optimum locations for your light switches. Another option is to install occupancy sensors in the place of existing light switches. These occupancy sensors can sense whether or not the room is being used. The sensor will automatically turn off the lights when the room is not being used. Call Doelp Electric for installation purposes.
