The average household spends over $2000/year on energy. Fortunately, there are many suggestions you can follow to reduce your energy consumption and expenditures. Additionally, if you live in an area with competitive power markets, you may be able to switch to another electricity provider and save money in that way. If a person were able to implement several simple suggestions, such as using programmable thermostats, they could save a large proportion of their energy costs each year.
