Hi everybody, I would like to know, how much each of you spend on electricity bills here in US especially if u are staying in an apartment ? I get around $180 to $230 every month (I think that s a little too high :-() . It's just me and my husband staying as of now. I am looking for some tips.Please share...Here is a small one, Every degree increase in thermostat in summer and every degree decrease in winter time, saves 1% of bill. I saw this in a magazine. I use Microwave often to semi cook before I fry, so that it consumes less oil and time on electric stove.But again Microwave consumes power. So :idontgetit: Fluorescent lights compared to incandascent lights save power. They are 6$ or 7$ in price, but come for 7 yrs solid and save $50 compared to the latter. :idea: Please share your tips here and tell me if those methods have made a difference.
