Electric bills are becoming a burden to consumers with the rise of several appliances in the market. Some appliances that increase the usage of electricity are the refrigerator and flat iron and electric pool heaters if you have one. Usage of a flat iron within three hours is equivalent to using the air conditioner in eight hours. Meanwhile, opening the refrigerator every once in a while also boosts the electric bill. One of the best tips in saving electric bill is to turn off the refrigerator if the flat iron is being used. Another tip is to use fabric conditioner for clothes to avoid using the flat iron.
