This is something we all care about, saving money is important, make sure you know how much you are spending at home, do something to cut on some unnecessary things and today I’ll show you a few tips to save money on your home bills.

Save Money On Your Home Bills

Paint your roof white

A recent study shows that in sunny climates, buildings with white roofs required up to 40 percent less energy for cooling than those with black roofs. At current utility rates, that means you could save $120 or more per year in cooling costs.

Make sure to use eco-friendly paint. No lead.

Do a nightly energy sweep

We all have left fans, lights or appliances on at night while we sleep, but doing so wastes increasingly expensive energy.

To save money, do a nightly sweep through the house to make sure all your electric devices are turned off before you go to bed. It may be a pain, but the savings from simply turning everything off can add up quickly. It takes about $9 per year to run just one compact fluorescent lightbulb through the night, $21 for a conventional bulb and $35 for a big ceiling fan on high.

These are some steps you can take to start saving money without running into other expenses. Give it a try, let me know how it goes.
