Get a Smart Thermostat and Layer Up to Save on Energy Bills
Every day, it seems like another bill needs to be paid. From rent and mortgages to water and electricity bills, keeping track of all your expenses can be hard. That’s why we introduced the Money Saving March Challenge! Day 6 of the challenge will be especially helpful for my people here in the Northeast and other parts of the country that tend to get really cold in the winter. Right now, for example, it’s about 38 degrees here in Boston so I know most people have the heat on blast. Well, check out the tips below for some suggestions, but only after you’ve started with Day 1 and gotten a better sense of a spending plan.
Using a Smart Thermostat
One way to save money on your energy bills is by using a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats can be adjusted remotely via an app on your phone or tablet. This means you don’t need to worry about manually setting the temperature when you leave home for work or when you go out for the evening. With a smart thermostat, you can adjust the temperature from anywhere at any time! This makes it easy and convenient for anyone who lives a busy lifestyle but still wants to save money on their energy bills.
Some smart thermostats to consider are the Google Nest Thermostat, ecobee Smart Thermostat Enhanced, and Amazon Smart Thermostat. Finding an option that fits into your budget is critical – so make sure to complete your spending plan first.
Extra Clothing Layers
Another tip for saving money on heating costs is wearing extra clothing layers so that you don’t need to keep the heat on high when you’re at home. A few extra layers will help keep you warm without needing to blast the heat all day long – which can really add up over time! And if it’s really cold outside, try using space heaters strategically placed throughout your house instead of cranking up the main heater in order to save some serious cash over time.
Energy Efficient Heaters
Lastly, think about using heaters that use less energy, like electric radiators or infrared panels, which are made with this in mind. These types of heaters use less electricity than traditional heaters while still providing plenty of warmth in any given room. They may cost more upfront but will pay off in the long run by significantly reducing your energy consumption – and therefore reducing your monthly bill!
Making small changes like adjusting your thermostat while away from home or adding extra clothing layers when inside can make a big difference in terms of how much money you spend each month on energy bills. Investing in better ways to heat, like electric radiators or energy efficient space heaters, can also help cut costs in the long run. So take advantage of these Money Saving March tips and start making adjustments today – both big and small – to help lower those ever-increasing energy bills once and for all!
