As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, many of us have been adapting to the “new normal” of working from home — and for children, schooling from home. Luckily, staying home can help you save a fair amount on commuting expenses. However, with more people in your home for longer periods of time, utility bills can start to put a strain on your wallet. That’s why we’ve put together some useful tips to help homeowners save on utility bills while you’ve got a full house.

Ways to Lower My Electricity Bill
These days, your kids’ school station, as well as your home office, may well have a considerable amount of electronics that stay plugged in. The quickest and easiest solution is to simply unplug these devices when they aren’t being used. Additionally, unplugging other devices around the house – including TVs and game consoles – can help lower your electricity bills. Bonus! If the TV isn’t plugged in, it won’t be turned on. There’s one less distraction!

How to Save on My Water Bill
If you’re looking for easy ways to save money on your water bill, start here: Don’t leave water running in the sink while you’re doing the dishes, brushing your teeth, or shaving. By turning off the water when it isn’t in immediate use, you’ll lower your overall consumption during the month, leading to a less expensive water bill.

Additionally, going the extra mile and installing low-flow faucets and toilets can help you save even more. By using low-flow fixtures, homeowners can reduce their overall water consumption by 30%. Not only is this a boon for your wallet, it’s also a great help for our environment.

More Great Ways to Lower Your Utility Bills
In addition to unplugging appliances and gadgets to save on electricity, being cognizant of your thermostat can help you save significantly. By keeping your thermostat temperatures set lower in the winter and higher in the summer, you can use much less

electricity when heating and cooling your home. 

Additionally, homeowners who use space heaters in the winter and fans in the summer can save electricity while remaining comfy at home. Just be sure to unplug them when you’re done so they don’t become energy vampires!
