Tip: More on Lowering the Electric Bill

A few of the things we've done to lower the electric bill are:
  • turn off lights and fans when leaving rooms
  • unplug items not in use
  • raise the AC temperature
  • turn off the downstairs AC at night, raise the upstairs AC during the day
  • short showers
  • large laundry loads, doing laundry less frequently
  • open the blinds during the day for light, close them when the sun hits those windows
  • change AC filters monthly
