How can you lower your household electricity bills?

The majority of homeowners and renters are interested in trying to save money on their household bills and usually the largest bill is for the energy we use. Over time the various energy sources such as electricity, gas and oil vary in their prices so that one may be far cheaper than the other, but electricity is used by us all for lighting and appliances even if not for heating. Saving money on our electricity bills is therefore important for us to achieve.

Savings can be made quite easily on our lighting usage by changing old incandescent light bulbs for more energy efficient LED lighting. Although more expensive initially, the saving over time is invaluable.

Turning off appliances that are not being used is another way to save energy and therefore money. Devices left on standby may not seem to be using much energy but over weeks and months it can add up to a considerable sum.

If it is possible in the property to install solar panels to provide some of the electricity you need it is a great investment as you will be able to generate electricity that can be used to power appliances in your home whilst the sun is shining.
