It appears to be a regular problem that people often get higher and higher electricity bills at the end of the month, but why does this happen? Have you ever got an incredibly high charge of electricity? If you have, what can you do to prevent it from happening again?
Here we tell you some of the reasons that may be causing this problem and how to stop receiving these expensive bills
- Demanding home appliances:
It is essential for you to have a fridge, a microwave, and a washing machine, and these are the ones that use the most electricity. So, if you are thinking of changing one of these elements, you should as well check out the details or ask the provider about the energetic efficiency shown on a scale from A to G, being “A” the best choice regarding energy saving.
2. You are not “Unplugged” :
If you are one of those people who leave their cellphones charging the entire night or one of those who never unplug any device, then this means bad news to you: You are consuming 12% more electricity
3. Too many lightbulbs :
We are not saying that you should live in the dark like a bat or something, but maybe that Candlemas that you like so much is really not that functional since every light bulb (even the saving ones) consumes energy that is registered and then charged in your bill. Making you pay more for the energy you really don’t need.
4. Your clothes :
When doing your laundry, think of all the energy and water that you could save if you use the full capacity of your washing machine. But you could save even more! How? It is really simple. If you plan your loads wisely, you will be able to iron your clothes right after washing in, saving energy by not having to iron clothes in the next washing legs.
If you follow these tips, you will for sure save way more energy, hence your bills will be lower every month. Saving energy, the planet, and your pocket!!
