Lower Your Energy Bill This Spring and Summer | St. Johns Bank

Now that the weather is beginning to warm up, is your wallet feeling the heat, too, with a higher electric bill?

Our team at St. Johns Bank wants to help save you money during the warmer months so that you can feel cool in your home without having to pay an arm and a leg.

Start Reducing Your Energy Bill ASAP!

Let’s take a look at some ways you can start lowering your energy bill payment each month.

First, you want to go around your house and make sure all vents are open and clear. If you have a vent that is closed or clogged, it will restrict air flow and cause your air conditioner to work even harder. You want to make sure air flow is moving as effectively throughout your house as possible.

Second, if you are like most households, you are washing at least one load of laundry a day. However, the time of day you wash laundry can make all the difference in saving a few dollars off your energy bill.

As a result, try and do laundry after 8 p.m. During this time, many people are not using as much electricity as they were during the day. Therefore, you are able to receive somewhat of a discount by washing your clothes at night.

Finally, when turning off electronics every night, instead of just hitting the power button, consider going around and unplugging any device that isn’t being used.

While the device might not be “on,” it can still be considered an energy vampire, which is also sucking money out of your bank account due to the rising energy bill it is causing.

Now that you are saving all that money on your energy bill each month, where are you going to put it? Visit the St. Johns Bank website today to learn about our saving account options and find the one that will best suit your needs.
