How To Save After Ontario Raised Electricity Costs
Even though scientists all around the world have predicted that this year’s El Nino could be the strongest ever, bringing warmer temperatures, the fact of the matter is, winter is still cold. Not to mention that in Ontario, as of November 1, 2015, electricity will now cost you more, here are some easy ways to put some money back in your pocket:
- Getting a programmable thermostat can save you up to $100 a year on energy costs.
- Unplug things you aren’t immediately using…toasters, chargers, the dancing Santa Claus.
- Run all of your laundry and dishwashing machines in the middle of the night during the off hours. You will be charged less for the electricity.
- Speaking of laundry, switch to cold water. You won’t have to pay to heat it up.
- Get new appliances. That old fridge in the basement that hums and groans is eating up savings. New Energy Star appliances are way more efficient.
- Switch out your old incandescent light bulbs for the lower energy using fluorescent ones.
- Get strippers!…well weather strippers. 40% of heat loss is through your windows and doors. Weather stripping can help save you a bundle.
