At the end of a long day at the office, what better way to unwind than by sitting in your garden and enjoying the warm summer nights?  Take a magazine, or your favorite book/Tablet and transport yourself back to those long carefree summers you enjoyed as a teenager.  To make the experience even better, install some solar centre solar landscape spot lights, that, at minimal energy costs will add maximum light to your outdoor experience.

These lights comprise six super bright LEDs in each light fitting and can light up to a range of 20 meters, so you get all the light you need, without significantly increasing your IDT Energy or other utility service provider bill.  As well, they can be put up to five meters away from the solar panel, meaning they can be in shaded areas where they wouldn’t normally be charged during the day.  Nothing needs to be plugged into the mains as the lights charge by day and automatically ignite at night.

A lot of wasted time and energy can go into home organization.  But there are many ways of keeping both of these to a minimum.  For example, it saves a lot of time (and water) to just put dishes into the dishwasher rather than pre-wash them, but a lot of people believe the pre-wash is vital for a clean wash.  This does not necessarily have to be the case.  Thus, for those who want to conserve energy while   keeping their utility bills down – no matter what service provider they are subscribed to, IDT Energy or any of the others – it is worth looking into the different appliances that may be able to help with this.

Here are a few tips on time and energy savings.  First, LG’s TrueSteam technology uses high-pressure steam particles to remove any food particles.  Since this eliminates the need for pre-washing, this saves time and energy. When it comes to the laundry, try and opt for the faster cycles.  When using a machine that has these options, this can make a huge difference in electricity used.

There are many other devices and appliances that are often being newly marketed that can really make a difference vis-a-vis time- and energy-conservation.

Chimney balloons can help save on IDT Energy utility bills, since they stop heat exiting and prevent draughts from entering through the chimney.  The objects look a little strange, but if they are going to save money and insulate a property better, it may be worthwhile.

Since a chimney is basically a big hole from the top to the bottom of the house, it needs to be covered to alleviate insulation issues.  And often dampers corrode or don’t close tight enough around the edges which prevents them from insulating properly.  And this is exactly where the beauty of the chimney balloon which is like a plug (but for the chimney).  One can install it themselves and once it’s there it’s pretty unobtrusive.  Ultimately, it will make a great saving for one’s utility bill.

It seems that America’s recession as generated some good news for people seeking ways of making cuts on the IDT Energy or other utility service provider bills.  According to a survey conducted by the Deloitte Center for Energy Solutions, Americans are trying to find more ways to save money because of the recession and one method they are focused on is energy-efficiency. If conducted well, this will have a domino affect of reducing one’s IDT Energy bills.

Even while America and the global economy is seeing some recovery, there is still a fear that things could go awry again and thus people are wary of getting too comfortable; hence they want to keep reducing costs wherever possible.  Given that there are many ways for one to reduce their utility bills – both at home and in the office – people are doing this, without really feeling on it.  Indeed, according to Vice Chairman of the Energy and Resources Sector at Deloitte LLP, Greg Aliff, “the recession is profoundly changing energy habits for both businesses and consumers. Using less may be the new normal, from boardroom tables to the kitchen tables.”
