what are some ways to save money on electric bill?

any ways to keep my bill low

richmama answers:

You can get an electric meter that gives you half price electricity at night time, so you could put your washing and dishwasher etc on at night and save money that way. Dont leave things on standby, plug out everything before you go to bed, wash on a low setting. Turn your thermostat down by a degree or two.

To save money on electric bill, is it better to keep the a.c. on low continuously or turn it off when out?

I’m confused as to what is the best way to economize on the electric bill regarding the air conditioner. I don’t know if I should turn it down when I go out for 20-30 minutes, turn it to fan, turn it off or leave it alone. I don’t have it on an ultra-cool setting, but I don’t want to be wasteful either. Thank you for any input you may have.

richmama answers:

Turn it on to fan, but only if it’s in the 80’s or higher, if not, turn it off.

Daniel asks…

How much will electric run in an apartment and how can I save money on my bill?

I’m moving out of my parents house for the first time into an apartment with my husband that’s 2 BR 1 BA and I was curious to know how much electric would run? I know you can’t tell me exactly I just need an idea. An does anyone have any ideas on ways to save money on my electric bill? BTW I live in Southern Indiana if that helps weather wise. I don’t use the heat much I’m always hot and I plan to use my window fans in the summer and the central air sometimes. Thanks!

richmama answers:

$100 a month seems about right. Try to keep adapters unplugged cause they use electricity although the object is off. And activities that dont involve watching tv or being on the computer help.

Chris asks…

Will I save money on my gas/electric bill if I swap my electric water heater with a gas water heater?

My electric water heater is on it’s way out, and I’m wondering if it is more efficient to replace it with a gas water heater than electric water heater. I looked into real time water heaters but for what they cost, I’d have to live in my house 22 years to get the savings, which isn’t worth it.

richmama answers:

Gas is generally a bargain compared to electric water heating. You can find out for certain by getting in touch with your elec co and gas co and asking them how much elec and gas is, then do some guesstimating to decide which is better.
