Have you noticed your electricity bill increasing in the last several months? You’re not alone. The impact of COVID has been far and wide, and electricity costs have been no exception. According to data from clean energy technology firm Arcadia, one-third of US households saw their electricity bills increase 10% to 15% higher last summer, and with remote learning and working from home a new normal for many, higher electricity bills could remain if you do not take the proper steps to prepare your home for the new normal.
Bonus: smart home technology also creates a variety of other ways to save money on bills.
Bonus tip: Dress up or down based on the temperature in your home, rather than always adjusting the thermostat if you are hot or cold. If you have a smart thermostat, program it at your preferred temperature, then adjust your clothing choices so that there aren’t as many fluctuations in your electric bill season to season.
