There are many simple ways that you can conserve energy and save money without putting in too much effort. There are so many times when people want to be more green by conserving on energy, but if the option isn’t convenient or easy then it is usually not even considered or if it is considered, it doesn’t last long. Changing our life styles and habits is not something that is done easily and they are also not something that is comfortable or convenient. At Electrician Tulsa we can recommend several ways that you can save yourself time, money, and be using more energy efficient products.
The very first thing to do is to be to replace your light bulbs with LED light bulbs. Electrician Tulsa highly recommends LED lights. That doesn’t mean that you need to go out and buy 30 new light bulbs right now, but as your light bulbs burn out one by one buy a LED replacement. Be sure that you get the right wattage and fit, but by replacing the light bulbs with LED light bulbs you will be using less energy, and saving yourself time and money. You will save your self-time because you will not have to replace your light bulbs as often. Even though initially an LED light bulb costs more than a fluorescent light bulb or other kinds, but they will last much longer so in the long run you will end up spending less than you would if you replaced the same light bulb 4 times.
Another simple solution is to invest in a wireless controlled thermostat. This is a great idea to save energy and money especially for those households where both parents work and it is empty most of the day. There is no need to have your home heated or cooled to 70 degrees if no one is home. With a wireless thermostat like a nest or something you can easily turn your air conditioning or heater on or off, up or down, from virtually anywhere. If you forget to turn it off while on a long trip, no problem. If you want your home warmed up before you get home from work, again, no worries. You can easily turn it on 30 minutes before you get home and let it start warming up. This is a very simple install for electrician Tulsa and will only cost a small amount and again save energy and money. A win-win situation for everyone!
At Electrician Tulsa we can also recommend the installation of ceiling fans to keep your home cool during these brutal hot Tulsa summers. It might surprise you how much just the movement of air can keep you’re feeling a lot cooler and will use far less energy than your air condenser, which will save you money. The installation of a ceiling fan is about $125, which is very affordable. We are very competitive on our prices with other electrical companies in the area, and our customer service can’t be beat.
