Other things I have done to lower the electric bill

April 21st, 2009 at 01:46 pm

Anything that generates heat uses alot of energy. Oven, microwave, coffee pot, hair dryer, clothes dryer, etc. How do I know this? After Ike, we were running on a generator for 4 wks. (hard wired into the house) and when we used any of these things the generator would "bog down." This had me watching things very closely as gas was extremely expensive and in short supply.

I air dried our clothes, put coffee in an insulatd thermos, cooked on the grill or with a crock pot, and so on.

I am still implimenting these thing in an effort to go green and save a little money and I have reaped the rewards. (Though I still can't remember to turn off the computer at night) LOL!

    Is your computer at least set up to go into Standby or Sleep mode after a period of nonuse? That helps if you don't remember to do it yourself. (I did this with mine, but don't remember now what I did!)

    Great idea. I'll have my hubby ck. into doing that.
