Moving? You Need to Add This to Your To-do List

by On Aug 3 2017

Moving can be stressful. The last thing you probably want to do when you’re moving is add another item to your to-do list. However, did you know that completing just a few simple tasks before your move-in date can save you money? Keep reading for our energy-saving to-do’s that will lower your next utility bill!

 

Your Energy-Saving To-Do List

  • Switch to a lower-rate energy plan! Moving is the perfect time to get this task done. Many electricity providers raise your rates after your contract term is up. Switch to one of Discount Power’s low-rate electricity plans to get low rates and never be charged unnecessary fees.
  • Use environmentally friendly packing materials. Not only are they green, but recycled packing materials will save you money.
    • Look for used boxes. Many grocery stores will give away their boxes, so you don’t have to purchase new ones. When you’re done, make sure you recycle all cardboard boxes.
    • Use newspaper rather than new packing paper. Old newspapers and magazines are perfect for cushioning your fragile items.
    • Buy biodegradable packing peanuts. These are made from grain sorghum and corn starch. They’re great for protecting your glassware!
  • Have a plan! This is the most important part of moving. In order to move efficiently, plan out the days on which you will move and exactly what you will move. This will ensure that you stay on track and aren’t paying for electricity in both your new and old home.
  • Switch to energy-saving appliances and products. When you’re moving, it’s a great time to donate old, inefficient appliances and switch to newer ones. When moving, consider purchasing a new refrigerator, oven, and other appliances that have Energy Star approval. You can also switch to products such as a smart thermostat.
