Will Unplugging These Common Household Appliances Reduce Your Electric Bill?

Is your electricity bill outrageously expensive? Stop blaming the kids for not turning off the lights and start blaming some of these common household energy consumers.

Bathroom Appliances

Get into the habit of unplugging your bathroom appliances after you’ve finished using them. Another thing to look out for is how high your settings are on your  hair dryer, curling iron and flat irons. The higher the heat, the more electricity consumed. Consider using a lower setting. This will not only be good for your hair, but good for your wallet.

These common bathroom appliances are stealthily increasing your electricity bill:

  • Electric Razor/Clippers
  • Electric Toothbrush (charging dock)
  • Curling Iron
  • Hair Dryer
  • Flat Iron

Heaters

Keep your monthly electric bills lower by eliminating their continuous use, especially if no one is in the room it is being used in. Use a plug-in timer to help you conserve energy. You can also reduce the amount of time you use the heater by closing doors and making sure your windows are shut.

These common electric heaters are dramatically increasing your bill:

  • Space Heaters
  • Electric Fireplaces
  • Ceramic Heaters

Electronics

Instead of overpaying Invest in a “smart” power strip. These types of power strips can sense which devices are being used, and will only provide power to what is actually in use.

These common electronics are using more electricity than you think:

  • Computers
  • Monitors and TVs
  • Printers
  • Fax Machines
  • Video Game Consoles
