We would all love to save more on our electric bill!

You work hard each and every day for your paycheck, and the last thing that anyone wants is to see all of that hard work go towards their expensive bills. Luckily, there are lots of little changes you can make that can make a big difference on your electric bill. The following is a list from our electrician in Cincinnati, OH of a few of the many small things you can do to save big on your electric bill:

#1. Switch out your light bulbs for power saver bulbs. 

Modern day homes are equipped with lots of light bulbs in every room, and those light bulbs get a lot of us. The good news is that you can see a dramatic difference in your electric bill by replacing your traditional light bulbs with power saver bulbs. Keep in mind that these power saver bulbs can be pricey, but the initial investment will pay off every single month in your electric bill.

#2. Install smart surge protectors. 

Many appliances still use a small amount of energy when they aren’t in use, but if you plug them into a smart surge protector, it’ll automatically turn off when not in use. If you don’t want to spend the money to install smart surge protectors, you could simply unplug your appliances when you aren’t using them.

#3. Use other methods to keep your home cool.
