How to Save Money on Your Winter Energy Bill
Using your Tulsa movers to uproot your whole family during the winter season will not only ensure that your holiday spirit stays intact, but also that your move goes as seamlessly as possible.
While your Tulsa moving company will make sure that the moving portion of getting settled into your new home is handled, you will want to make sure that the rest of your household is set up. Winter in Tulsa can get pretty chilly, and you will without a doubt want to get bundled up in a cozy blanket and sit by the fireplace. The only potential hitch in the plan when it comes to enjoying your first winter in your new home? Getting your first energy bill and seeing how much it has cost to stay warm.
Luckily, All My Sons Moving & Storage have over 20 years of moving experience, and with that we have picked up a couple of tricks on how to save money on your winter energy bill along the way. With all of the money you will be saving, don’t forget to treat your Tulsa movers a cup of hot cocoa to enjoy while they finish getting your family settled into their new home!
Make sure your dishwasher is full. Don’t run your dishwasher without making sure it is full first. Most homeowners do not know that dishwashers are the most energy and water efficient when full, and as a result, they miss out on saving a ton of money. Lucky for you, you will be able to save money on your winter energy bill simply by loading it all the way with dirty dishes!
Time your electricity-heavy activities. Did you know that by saving your most electricity-heavy activities, like showering or laundry, for the hours before 7 a.m. or after 10 p.m. can cut down the costs on your winter energy bill by a ton? In some cities, electricity rates are higher during the day time aka prime time, making it a better idea to wait until the nighttime to do your laundry.
Unplug home electronics you’re not using. By keeping home electronics plugged in when you are not using them, you could tack on almost $75 a year to your winter energy bill. Your Tulsa moving company knows that you wouldn’t want to pass up such an easy way to save money – just remember to unplug your electronics once you are done using them! Don’t think $75 a year is really a big deal? Think of it as one more Christmas present you can get for a family member, or a more expensive one.Don’t forget to clean your dryer lint filter. The dryer can be a huge source of energy used and expenses added onto your energy bill. If it’s one thing that your Tulsa movers have noticed throughout the years, it is that cleaning the lint filter in your dryer after every use makes a huge difference. In fact, a clogged lint filter can increase energy use by up to 30 percent – and not to mention create a huge safety hazard!
