While it’s usually easy to blame your provider for hiking up rates, your bill is actually much more likely to be high because of your usage. To help you start saving money, we’ve identified a few of the culprits behind high household power usage and reminders for how to lower your rate of use. Before you obsess over how much electricity your TV is using, I want you to obsess over how much your heating, cooling, and lighting is using.TV energy use is a drop on the bucket for most people.
However, even if done perfectly for each device in the home, there will be no change in the reading on the home’s power meter and thus no change in the charges from the power company. If u really wanna save any of it, move the appliance closer to the power meter. On the inductive loads, such as the washing machine , the loss of electrical power in your house wiring is already negligible. If you want a lower electric bill; use less electricity. The switch to led bulbs is the only thing I’ve done that has actually lowered the electric bill and after a few months the power company readjusts it’s billing to bring the cost right back up.
