Are you tired of seeing your utility costs rise every month? Take control and reduce your monthly expenses with help from the team at Mr. Electric of Dallas. Our certified electricians in Dallas are excited to offer a variety of commercial and residential services that help property owners keep their energy usage at bay. Here are some simple changes that you can make to significantly decrease your electric bill this spring season.

Schedule an Energy Audit

Many people already schedule an electrical inspection in the spring. This year, invest in an energy audit as well. You’ll find out exactly where and how you’re wasting valuable electricity, so you can make informed decisions about which habits need to change, and what appliances need to be replaced. 

Install an Energy Monitor

While an energy audit can alert home and business owners to areas that need improvement, installing an energy monitor will continue providing detailed data and information in real time. Access your energy usage information from any device, anywhere in the world. You’ll find incredible new ways to save money and reduce energy waste. 

Replace Lights with a Smart LED Lighting System

Large households frequently waste a lot of energy by accidentally leaving the lights on. Unfortunately, once everyone leaves for work or school, those lights will continue using electricity for hours. However, when you have a smart lighting system, you can turn them off with a simple swipe of your screen without leaving the office. Smart LED lighting systems provide energy efficient illumination, and offer innovative features like motion detection sensors and timer settings for a variety of ways to customize lights in ways that offer the most benefits and conveniences for you and your loved ones.

Upgrade to Energy Star Appliances

If you’ve been using the same outdated, energy guzzling water heater, refrigerator or clothes dryer, then this springtime may be the perfect opportunity to invest in an energy star model. While it may be a large initial investment, the amount of savings obtained long term will make it worth the effort. Particularly when you consider the elimination of unnecessary repairs and part replacements that will certainly accrue if you choose to hold on to a large appliance that’s past it’s prime. An energy audit or energy monitor installation will help narrow down your choices of appliance upgrades, so you know your investment is going towards the wisest option. 

Buy an Electric Vehicle and Charge at Home

If you really want to make an impact, consider trading in your conventional gas car for an electric alternative. Electric vehicles have come a long way over the years. Now, they come in a variety of attractive models, with all the modern features and amenities of other popular cars. However, the option to fuel your car with an energy efficient charging station at home can put a lot of cash back in your pockets. Electric vehicles are a great option for families who use their vehicle for daily commuting, as you’re sure to see the most savings over time.
