Top tips to save you money on your energy bill

Yes, solar panels are a way to save money on energy and there are other easy ways to give your wallet a break.

A few simple steps can help you lower your energy bills and you can start right now to help you save on your electric bill.

  • close curtains and blinds
  • run ceilings fans counterclockwise
  • unplug devices you don’t use

During the day, close your curtains or blinds because 30% of the heat in your home comes through the windows.

Something else a lot of people forget to do that will save money is to regularly change or clean your HVAC filters because dust and dirt can build up and keep your unit from running at peak performance.

A lot of families are choosing to install solar panels to stay cool and save money. Energy experts say it’s one of the big reasons why more than 40% of all power produced in Texas comes from wind and solar. Ten years ago, solar provided the grid with less than 5% of its energy.

Like so many of us fed up with the high temperatures and high prices, the Mendy family chose to invest in solar panels, a decision they said has saved them a lot of money so far.

“The first full month, our electric bill was zero,” they said. “For the most part, we’re using, we’re actually generating more power than we need so that goes back into the grid.”

According to solar companies, like Freedom Solar Power, business is booming. While the average cost of installing panels is around $30,000 they said solar panels save you much more in the long run.

The company said most families finance their solar panels and their savings, which they claim is around $200 a month, ends up being less than the loan payment.
