Conserving Energy with Family

Energy is really important especially when you have a family. Too much energy spent doesn’t just affect the environment but it could also result in bigger payments and bills which are very stressful even if you live alone or with your family. The past few months, I realized that we’ve been spending too much energy which costs us too much money. This has been stressing my husband and me when it comes to bills. Since we have four kids, we tend to spend more energy than usual and use the electricity more often. However, I knew it was time to do something and try to lessen the electricity and energy usage inside the house to conserve more.

We all know that there are so many ways to conserve energy and there are a lot of sustainable energies that we can resort to. A lot of people do incorporate this already in their homes whether they live alone or with their family. It doesn’t just help the environment but could also prevent you from spending too much money on the electric bills. When you become an adult and start to live alone or even have a family, bills and payments will be a part of your concern. And believe me, no one is happy about spending too much money when it comes to electricity. Same goes for my family and that is why my husband and I thought of ways on how we can prevent ourselves from using so much energy in this household.

Not too long ago we found out about the Energy Audit Mesa which taught us how to assess how much energy we’ve spent. This helped a lot when it comes to energy maintenance. Other than that, FOR Energy also provides different services like home energy checkups which can also be convenient when checking your energy usage. They also have solars, and properly seal ducts to lessen the amount of air coming from an air conditioner or to just prevent it from leaking out. For us, solar energy really helped our family conserve more energy. Besides, we also had our air conditioner properly sealed and checked to make sure we don’t use too much energy from its electricity.

Besides the help from them, my husband and I also made sure that we teach our children to sustain energy in ways they can. We taught them to minimize the usage of television and told them when to use it or not. We planned a schedule so that it lessens the use of electricity. Saving energy is not that bad, besides it also helped our family to bond more together. When we plan not to use too much electricity, we end up going outside to get some fresh air or just stroll around altogether. This doesn’t just help us save money but it also can be great because you know you can help with sustaining energy not just for you and your family but also for other people and for the environment. I suggest we all start conserving and saving energy starting now.

I love the challenges of being a wife and mom

I love the challenges of being a wife and mom. This blog is all about my life’s stories. It is mostly about my children and partly about my rants and happiness as a wife.

The reason why I created this website is to share with all of you stories about my family and the successes and challenges that I have faced. This decision is not something that I have decided on a spur of the moment. It is something that I’ve been thinking of for a long time. Then one day, I finally got around to calling my go to Wichita garage door repair company and had the time to actually paint the thing and that’s when I realized that I finally had to do this.

My mission is to share everything I’ve went through in order for you to learn from my experiences and to share with you some important decisions that I usually have to make as a mom. Everything here is as real as it gets, I never sugarcoat.
