Now that many of us have found ourselves working from home and your kids doing schoolwork online, you may start to see that your energy bills increase a bit. There are many people that are tightening up their budget because these are times of uncertainty that we are all facing. This may leave you wondering what this is going to mean for your utility bills? Have no fear, Burley Electrical Services is here to share some tips to help you conserve energy while you are working from home.
Unplug Appliances when Not in Use
For many, this isolation may be a dream come true. The fact that you don’t have to get out of your pajamas at all every day and have the option to work while you are catching up on your favorite Netflix Original, can seem like a nice break from your usual busy life. When you are powering your computer, television and several other devices all at one, you may start to notice that it takes a lot of energy to run everything simultaneously. Your child may have taken up some video gaming to help them pass the time as well. While these activities can help you get through this quarantine, maybe explore other options that don’t require electricity. You could take up puzzles, arts and crafts as well as games that are played outside when weather permits to help cut down the electricity bills.
Natural Light & Energy Savings
Before you flip those lights on in your home office, think about whether or not you can enjoy the natural light the day has to offer. If you notice that natural light seems to put a glare on your computer when you open the blinds and pull the curtains, consider rearranging your home office so that the sun isn’t a problem anymore. Cutting down on the artificial light you use is sure to help you conserve energy.
Power Management Computer Energy Savings
If you find that you walk away from your computer often and get distracted by things like children, pets and cleaning in between your working hours, you may want to go into your energy saving settings on your computer and adjust them so that your monitor will shut off after a certain amount of time has passed.
Use Grill or Fire Pit Rather than Range
For those of you that are lucky enough to have a propane grill or backyard fire pit, this is the perfect time to do some experimental recipes on them. By not using your stove tops and ovens, you will find that you can save on your utility bill.
