For Those Who Think I’m Evil

Posted on May 27, 2010 by under Life, Money, Videos.    

I actually gave in to Brian last week. I’d been trying to hold out on turning our AC on until June. Last week, however, I’d had enough of Brian’s incessant whining. I finally agreed to turn on our AC and leave it on. I rather liked the $60 power bill we had last month. I doubt it will ever be that low again until fall. Ugh.

I don’t really do much to save on energy, but holding out on using your AC makes a huge difference. This is because ACs use the bulk of home energy consumption. I never set our AC lower than 78 degrees, another point of contention between Brian and me. He likes it at a constant 72 degrees. Believe it or not, those 6 degrees amount to a lot of dollars — specially on hot summer days.

Anyway, here are some tips on how to reduce your energy consumption and become more energy efficient. What about you? What are some things that you do to save money on your energy bill?

We noticed a big difference with our windows. Getting high-quality, energy-efficient windows can also result in a lower energy bill. When we covered those windows with thick wood blinds that we could close on hot days, we noticed that we hardly had to run the AC. So windows – and what you cover them with – do make a difference!
