Receiving your monthly electric bill can be often quite a "shocking" experience, not mentioning the damage that it can easily deal to your household budget. Now, before you start making radical lifestyle changes or get your hands on expensive energy-saving gadgets, the truth is, there are a lot of trouble-free ways to save on electricity.

All it takes is a bit of effort and a touch of common sense on your part. Below you will find uncomplicated tips and advice on how to cut back on electricity without ever having to spend on anything fancy. With these helpful pointers, you are on your way to become a sharp electricity consumer in no time.

  1. Make sure you go for compact fluorescent bulbs instead of incandescent ones when installing lighting fixtures around your house. Although they may be a few dollars more expensive, fluorescent varieties consume less electricity than their incandescent counterparts. Thus, considerably lowering your power bill in no time.

  2. Keep in mind to regularly clean your lamps, lights, refrigerators, air conditioners, as well as other devices that utilize electricity in your home. Even the thinnest layer of dust and grime can considerably reduce operational efficiency. In addition, have your appliances checked by a professional at least once a month. While this means shelling out a small amount of cash, nipping out any probable internal problems in the bud can save you from heavy spending due to repairs sooner or later.

  3. You don't need to buy anything costly just to make your home as comfortable as possible during the summer season. Just make sure you keep all of your windows open to let as much ventilation inside, and if you have to use curtains, go for the really thin ones that hold back most of the sunlight yet keep the air flowing in. As for the winter season, using thick drapes to cover your windows keeps your house nice and toasty, as well as reduces the need for heaters.

  4. Make sure you switch off your printer whenever it is not in use. Most people tend to keep it on while their computers are running. Similarly, turn off your desktop computers and laptops even if you will be away for only 15 to 30 minutes. Your electric bill definitely doesn't switch to idle mode when you leave your computer unoccupied. This also includes your lights, lamps, television set, DVD player and video game console.

  5. Remember to avoid running your dishwasher unless it is absolutely full. Apart from wasting away electricity, you are throwing away precious water. Believe it or not, keeping your hairdryer's setting below maximum can help you save money, as well. Apart from reducing your power bill, your scalp won't be vulnerable to rawness and sore spots due to constant, excessive heat.
