Unplug electronics when they are not in use!

I cannot emphasize enough the importance of unplugging all the electronics when they are not in use. Many people assume that if the TV is plugged in but turned off, it will not use much power. However, that assumption is completely wrong. Whichever technology is plugged in throughout the day and night, it will use as much energy it can and do not be surprised if your electricity bill comes higher than usual. Unplug any technologies that you don't use and turn off every light when they are not in use.

Use LED lights Instead

There are many advantages of using LED lights. LED lights tend to consume less electricity than incandescent lights. Their surface temperature is not so hot, which makes them so much safer to have around the house. On the other hand, most LED lights are made out of epoxy lenses, which makes them resistant to breakage.

Energy Star Appliances

If your goal is to use products and appliances that are safe for the environment and at the same time, helps you to save on the energy, then I highly recommend that you should invest on Energy Star Appliances. Energy Star Rated appliances use 20-30% less energy than most other regular products.
