Tired of the bill prices? Let’s see
them fall! Spend more money on what other
things you want.
Bills seem like they keep increasing.
There should be a law against increasing bills
and give those people fines for increasing
bills. More money out of their pockets rather
than OURS. Yes, My Black people, let us save
money TOGETHER. They are so dang on petty
for increasing prices in stuff. They need
to grow up. If they could think and make
sense they would be doing something good.
High bills are the problem, saving is the
solution as we know. But for now, here are ways
to save on your bills.
Seal and weatherstrip your windows and doors
to make sure the air conditioning or heat
is not going outdoors.
A water tank insulation wrap costs about
$20.00. This Add the pre cut pipe
insulation to pipes you see going into
your water heater. It’s not expensive
at all and simple to put in. If you began
off with an uninsulated tank, the energy
savings should pay for the changes
in a few months.
Instead of duct tape, use mastic ( a
gooey substance put on with a paintbrush)
to close up all shown ductworkk joints
like the attic, crawlspace and the basement
as well. This will in turn improve your
heatiing system and make it more comfortable
Storm windows cut down on the heat lost by
single paned windows 25-50 percent in the
winter. This is a temporary thing, but
you can improve your windows with plastic
sheeting on the inside.
If you defide to buy new products, look
out for the ENERGY STAR label found on
Tvs, furnaces, cell phones, refridgerators,
air conditioners, etc.
Incandescent light bulbs are outdated
as we know. 95% of the energy used is
for heating the light bulb which gives
off the unwanted heat for your home
in the summer months.
But it says to replace 5 most used light bulbs
with Energy Star compact fluorescent bulbs
and that will say $60 each year on your
These particular light bulbs use 2 thirds
less energy but at the same time last 10
times longer. Using dimmers, timers, and
motion detectors on indoor and outdoor
lighting is also another great idea.
ENERGY STAR torchiere lamps are safer and more
useful than laogen torchieres.
ANd last, remember what I said before about
what OUR BLACK people spending money on
in 2004? Lets see the bills go down
for how much we spend in 2008 and beyond.
