Electrical Upgrades That Save Money

If you are considering adding some upgrades to your home’s electrical system, don’t forget to consider upgrades that will help you save a little money. With the right changes, you can lower your energy bills as you improve the look and ambiance of your home.

New Installations
Installing new light fixtures, ceiling fans and even air conditioners in your home is one way to save money. Often old, outdated features in your home use more energy than newer models. Simply upgrading and installing something new will lower your electricity use, thus saving you money.

Swapping out your old light bulbs for LED bulbs will help save you money as well. These bulbs use far less electricity than their traditional counterparts, and, as an added bonus, they last longer as well. This means fewer trips up the step ladder to change bulbs that have burned out while enjoying lower electrical bills at the same time.

Add Dimmer Switches or Timed Switches for Your Lights
How many times have you entered a room, only to find that you left the light on, again? That is money out the window as you spend money on lighting a room that you are not using. Instead, make sure the lights turn off with a timed switch. After you have left the room, the switch will turn off the light.

Motion sensors can do the same in situations where you will not be using the room at regular intervals. Motion sensors turn on the lights when you enter the room, then switch them off when you leave. It’s fool-proof energy savings!

Dimmer switches can also help you lessen your energy use by allowing you to use just the amount of energy you need. This lets you lower your energy use during those times when you don’t need as strong of a light.

Remember, when it comes to electrical upgrades, you can often save money by spending a little on a new system or new switch.
