We can never stress this enough: the daily energy consumption of a household is one of the major expenses. With a few simple tricks, you can drive your energy costs down. Turn off the lights in empty rooms, don’t leave the battery chargers plugged in all night long and disable the sleep mode of your unused devices. Put on an additional sweater and socks during the winter and reduce the temperature at night or while you are away instead of turning the heat down. Take showers rather than baths and turn off the water when soaping yourself.
Carpool or take mass transportation whenever possible. Keep up a regular maintenance on your car and refill often your tires. Economical driving can also reduce your fuel expenses: don’t brake or accelerate suddenly, drive with the highest gear and use as much as possible engine braking.
