Dry your clothes outside
It is not always required that you use your dryer. You can hang your laundry on the balcony if you have that option, or in the garden. It will let you save remarkably on your electricity bills.

While doing so, you can control them as per your wish and make sure that you are preventing the use of excess energy.
Avoid the standby mode
If you think that you are not going to use a particular home appliance, switch it off. Always remember that standby mode will see you end up paying extra. It’s because such a mode will keep on consuming energy continuously. So, make it a habit to switch off an appliance after every use.
Go for an insulated roof
When it comes to energy bills, an insulated ceiling is important. You might think that just insulating the ceiling of your top floor is enough as hot air rises by convection. However, the scenario is quite different. Heat also moves from warmer area to a cooler area through conduction and radiation. So, it’s makes sense that insulating the entire roof will definitely save some of your pounds.
