High Energy Bills? You May Be Running Your Appliances At Peak Energy Hours

While it’s nice to have all your appliances available with the flip of a switch, running them all at peak energy hours can take a toll on your larger home systems and your monthly electric bills.

Check Your Appliances For Peak Energy Hours

During extreme temperatures, larger systems like your HVAC unit demand a lot of energy to provide your home with the hot or cold air you desire. If your energy bills are unusually high, check if your other appliances are running at peak energy hours.

How To Check If Your Appliances Are At Peak Energy Hours

  • If you are dealing with higher-than-usual electrity or utility bills, it could be a result of having too many systems and appliances running at the same time. To combat that, avoid using high-electricy appliances at the same time as large systems or many lights on in the home.

  • Are there certain times of the year or of the day where your systems are under more pressure than others? For example, in the hottest summer months, your air conditioner is probably on full blast. Or maybe in the early evening, everyone is home and you have multiple TVs, room lights, and cooking appliances running at once. Try to avoid running too many appliances at these peak times to keep utility bills down.

If your appliances are running at off-peak energy hours, consider other issues for why your electric bills are on the rise.

What To Do If Your Appliances Are Running At Peak Energy Hours?

The best thing you can do to lift the strain on your wallet and your home’s systems is to run your other appliances at off-peak electricity hours. For example, run your dishwasher and washing machine at night when you turn off all the lights to go to sleep.
