Energy Saving Devices

Whatever energy service provider you are signed up with, ensure you read the contract carefully and try and get the best deal. IDT Energy allows clients to cancel without a fee for example.  But once you have signed up, you should constantly be on the lookout for ways to make even more savings in other ways.  Today, there are even devices that can help such as a programmable thermostat and a water purifier.

The first device – the thermostat – gives the user a far easier-way of temperature control in their home, saving them hundreds of dollars.  Once the temperature is controlled properly, utility costs get under control.  At a relatively cheap price of $30, it really is a great money-saving device.

The second device – the water purifier – makes pure water a rather inexpensive thing to buy.  These days bottled water from the store can cost even more than gas.  So installing a water filter instead which only costs around $35 – has to be a great money-saving device.  In addition, this is way better than purchasing bottles upon bottles is good for the environment and your convenience.  So be sure to look at other ways of saving on your utility bills.  You would be surprised at just how much you can save by making a few small changes and installing a few small devices.

Warming Up in Winter…

…Without Breaking the Bank

Over the cold, winter months, it can be challenging to keep electricity bills down. No matter which of the main electricity providers you choose to use – IDT Energy, or other throughout the nation – there are always ways to save energy.  Indeed, there are often helpful articles online too which provide guidance on how to make simple changes in your home environment so that you will save energy (and cash!) without even realizing it.

Therefore, come the end of Fall and the descent into winter, you need not worry about dropping temperatures.  Just take some advice and make easy-to-implement changes. For example, make sure your home furnaces are in perfect working order. As soon as any of your gas appliances are not working at 100 percent capacity, bills are likely to increase.  So preventive measures are well-advised.

For most homes, heating accounts for over 50 percent of winter gas bills.  Thus it is essential these are regularly serviced and inspected.  You will ultimately save money if you spend the money on this useful service.  It is just a matter of efficiency.
