So, when it comes to cutting costs and saving electricity in your Farragut home, where exactly should you start? Read on to find out how to save on your Farragut energy bill.

-An easy but often forgotten way to save on your Farragut energy  is turning off lights. Leave only lights on in rooms that you’re in and be sure to turn off lights when you leave your house or go to bed. Also, consider investing in energy efficient light bulbs, they can be costly, but can help save on your Farragut energy bill.

-Another way to save on your Farragut energy bill is to be efficient with your dishwasher. Learn how to load your dishwasher in to get as much in as possible and only run when your dishwasher is full. If time allows, turn off the heated dry and allow your dishes to air dry. Don’t run a dishwasher that is only half way full unless you have to.

-In addition, another way to save on your Farragut energy bill is to reevaluate how you do laundry . It’s not always necessary to do loads in hot water, if possible use warm or cold water. Also, be sure to select a load size the corresponds with your load of laundry. Don’t select a large cycle if a medium cycle will do.

-Another easier way to save on your Farragut energy bill is by lowering the temperature in your hot water heater. It make take a few tries to find a temperature that is comfortable, but the effort will be worth the savings.

-Take some of the stress away from your air conditioning and be sure to change the air filter on a regular basis (once every one of two more months). Clogged air filters can make your air conditioner work harder and use more electricity. Changing your air filter will always be helpful to those in your home who struggle with allergies, especially since Knoxville is the Allergy Capital of the US.

-Consider investing in a thermostat that can be controlled by a timer. New thermostats allow you to regulate the temperatures based on time settings and some even allow you to make adjustments to your Farragut home from your cell phone. It can be a huge waste of energy to heat and cool your home when you’re not home. Also, avoid temperature extremes in your home, keep your home as cool as possible in the winter (you can always grab a blanket) and as warm as possible in the summer (use a fan or less bedding when you sleep).
