Posted on Uncategorized August 28, 2014 by Emily Jones

We know that energy bills in South Florida can get expensive and our coupons help you to enjoy some savings when it comes to our AC services. However, there are many relatively simple ways to save money around the house. We have comprised a list of tips that can add to big annual savings so you have more cash to spend on whatever you wish.

Homemade Cleaning Products

There are hundreds of products on the market that all claim to be effective cleaners and a lot of them are. The truth is that you can make your own cleaning solutions with common products that you may have lying around the house. Vinergar, baking soda, rubbing alcohol, lemon, and cornstarch all can be used to for effective cleaning.

 

  • Vinegar is useful for deodorizing and remove greasy buildups.
  • Baking soda is a great scouring agent that cleans and deodorizes. (Mix vinegar and baking soda together for a strong cleaning solution)
  • Lemon is great for deodorizing and is one of nature’s natural cleaners.
  • Isopropyl alcohol is a powerful disinfectant and is great for killing germs on touch surfaces
  • Cornstarch can be used to help absorb oil stains and clean windows.

Energy Efficient Lightbulbs

Incandescent bulbs use up much more current, burn hotter, and have a shorter lifespan than the newer style energy efficient halogen and compact fluorescent bulbs. Change out as much lighting around the house to halogen or fluorescent and you will reduce energy costs.

Rechargeable Batteries

Batteries have always been expensive and now they are pricier than ever. Rechargeable batteries cost upfront but you will save money down the road because you won’t have to constantly replace them. Rechargeable batteries will eventually need to be replaced but they are worth it because you can get several hundred charges out of them.

 Water Coolers

We know that water can be used up fast, especially in a humid South Florida summer. Water bottles are costly and have a huge impact on the environment. Shop around for a water dispenser and you will drastically cut down on water expenses. Most models start a little above $100 but a 5 gallon jug can be filled up for a a fraction of the cost of a pack of water bottles. Your initial investment will pay off in time, especially if your family goes through water bottles quickly.

Unplug Electronics

Even when electronics such as televisions, game systems, and cell phone chargers are not use they still consume power. Pair your electronics to power strip and flick the switch off when not in use and you will reduce energy costs . It only takes a second to flick the switch back on.
