Energy-Saving Tips

Are you looking for ways to cut down on your electricity consumption? Not only will using electricity cut down on your prepaid utility bill, but you’ll be helping the environment as well!

If you are a cost-conscious consumer, read on for some helpful tips and tricks that can quickly put a dent in your power usage and help you start racking up the savings.

Enroll in a prepaid electricity plan

One way you can start saving plenty of cash is by enrolling in one of the prepaid electricity plans available to Texas residents.

  • Ampra Energy, a 100% Green Energy power provider, offers competitive rates and flexible payment options to those living in a deregulated area of Texas. Most residents in Texas will find that their utilities are “deregulated,” meaning you can choose the electricity provider you desire based on the prices and services offered.
  • Having the freedom to choose your utility service provider is the key to controlling costs and curbing usage.
  • In addition, Ampra Energy and Smart Meters allow you to track your utility consumption and keep your account in check. If you’re worried about bad credit, don’t be! You can enroll in one of Ampra’s cash-saving prepaid electricity plans with NO credit check, NO deposit, and NO SSN/ID required.
  • Smart Meters allow you to look for real-time usage trends. Basically, prepaid electricity means you can track your habits and cut corners or be more conservative where you need it most—saving money!

Use your appliances at the right time

Doing so increases the lifespan of your appliances and maximizes their performance.

  • Only run your dishwasher and clothes dryers when you have full loads to wash. Running these machines with smaller amounts means you’ll be using them twice as often for no reason.
  • Don’t overload your washing machine—making the machine work twice as hard also means using twice as much energy and risks causing damage to the unit.
  • When you’re cooking, try not to use your stove and/or oven during the hottest times of the day. If you must, use smaller cooking appliances, such as the microwave or toaster oven to use less energy.
  • Heating up your house during the hottest parts of the day makes your air conditioner work harder, which increases your utility costs.

Set your thermostat appropriately

  • Turn your thermostat up in the summer and down in the winter months.
  • Dress in plenty of comfy layers (like scarves and sweaters) to stay cozy and warm in the winter. Throw a couple of extra blankets or quilts on your bed and couch, too.
  • In warmer weather, keep windows, curtains, and blinds closed during the daytime, and open them when it gets dark as needed.

Unplug unused appliances and devices

  • Whenever you’re not using electronics, try to keep them turned off and unplugged. This includes devices like laptops, cell phones, lamps, and televisions.
  • This is an easy and effective way to lower your electric bill quickly. If you’re leaving a room, flip the switch to save on unused lights.
  • Using energy-efficient lightbulbs is also a helpful hint.

Keep your vents and air filters clean

  • It’s very important to make sure that all of your air filters and vents are clean and functioning properly. They need to be replaced regularly to prevent dirt and debris from clogging them up.
  • Maximize airflow by also making sure vents and air ducts aren’t unnecessarily blocked by furniture or other appliances.
  • Make sure your home has enough insulation. A professional technician can check things out for you and put you at ease if you’re feeling a bit unsure of your abilities.

Use solar power and/or EnergyStar certified appliances

  • If it is possible for your budget and lifestyle, use solar energy (such as solar panels) and choose EnergyStar certified appliances. These smart steps and effective energy-savers will keep your consumption down and lower your electric bill on a consistent basis—by a potentially huge amount.
  • Of course, solar energy installation in your home can be very costly initially, but the outcome most definitely puts you on the fast track to major savings in the future.
