Your energy efficiency and choice among Texas energy providers could determine whether you save money on your energy bill. That's because you wield the power to save energy around your home or business by following a few key tips. By taking the time to make simple changes, you could become an energy-savings superhero. Not only will your bank account thank you, but the earth and all of its inhabitants will appreciate it as well.

Children can save energy, too, if you tell them how

One of the greatest things about making it a priority to save energy is that everyone in the household can get involved. Most children love to learn about the planet and conservation, and giving them jobs around the house to help make a difference can be exciting for them. Every little bit of energy saved makes a difference because it all adds up over months and years. Help your kids learn how to conserve energy by assigning duties such as light monitor or thermostat checker. It may seem like a small thing to you, but it gets them involved in creating a cleaner earth for tomorrow. Having energy-saving superhero sidekicks around the house gives them something to do and lightens your load.

Learn new ways to save energy

You may already know of several ways to conserve energy, such as turning off the lights when you leave a room. But you might be surprised at some of the new ways to save energy that exist.

Many Texas energy providers offer customers a list of things they can do to reduce their power bills while reducing their carbon footprints. Some of these items are simple, while others take a bit more time and attention. Either way, it's always good to explore new ways to save energy.

How to save energy around your home or business

  • Stop phantom electricity use. Many home and work electronics still use electricity to power clocks and other displays when they’re in “standby” mode. Examples are computers, monitors, phone chargers and coffee makers. Unplug them or plug them into a power strip so you can turn them all off at once.
  • Install a programmable or smart thermostat. Newer technology allows you to adjust your heating and cooling settings very easily, so you don't waste energy when no one is at home or the office to benefit.
  • Consider repairing refrigerator door seals. If you feel cold air around the closed door of your refrigerator, you could be using more electricity than necessary to keep your food cold. The cost for repairs might be minimal, and the difference it could make on your energy bill could be well worth it.
  • Buy ENERGY STAR appliances for the house or the office. The government certification for energy savings applies to a variety of appliances and electronics such as air conditioners, computers, televisions, light fixtures and ceiling fans.
