‘Circuit breaker’ trick could shave $300 or more off your energy bill for Christmas – and you can do it before work

A SIMPLE circuit breaker hack may save homeowners or renters up to $300 on their energy bills.

The tip comes from TikToker alchemygoddess, who shared that she learned the hack from her energy company’s website.

1The TikToker was able to bring her energy bill down to just $40

Earlier this year, she shared a video, revealing the quickest way to cut down on electricity and save big on your bill - shut off your circuit breaker.

“Why do I need electricity coming into my house while I’m not there,” the TikToker said.

She shared that when she was living in Florida, she had moved from the projects to an upscale apartment.

Before that, she was living in the projects where most of her bills were paid for as she was getting government assistance.

However, once she moved, that quickly ended as her first bill shocked her with $400 charge.

Her energy hack

In order to bring down her bill, the TikToker decided to check with her utility company knowns as JEA.

She asked on Facebook to see if there were any tips for bringing down costs.

Eventually, she found one that was a huge saver and that was turning off the circuit breakers.

This simple step took her bill from $400, eventually all the way down to $40.

Anytime she left the house for a long period of time, she turned off the breaker.

The one thing she did leave on was the circuit breaker for her refrigerator so her food didn’t spoil.

One more tip

Another tip she revealed is one she got from her grandfather, who worked for Con Edison for decades.

He said it was actually a myth relating to lights.

Most of us have heard it before, “shut off all the lights in the house when you leave the room.”

And sure, this may help if you are leaving your house or apartment for long periods.

But if you’re still in your place constantly shutting them off and on when you leave a room, that is actually costing you.

“When it shuts down, it now has to start back up. And every time it has to start back up when you hit that light switch on, it pulls so much energy,” she said.

She said it's best to either leave them on or turn them off for extended periods of time.

More energy assistance

The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is federally funded and typically provides families with energy credits and payment help worth up to $500.

The program provides states with funds allocated to programs associated with home energy bills, energy crises, weatherization, and energy-related minor home repairs.

Plus, since it's a grant, the cash doesn't have to be repaid.

However, the program is left up to the states so payment amounts will differ depending on where you live.

LIHEAP is a federal grant and aid program, but states have leeway in setting eligibility guidelines unlike other federal programs such as SNAP.

States are able to set the eligibility ceiling up to the greater of 150 percent of the federal poverty level or 60 percent of state median income with a minimum of 110 percent.

The federal poverty guidelines vary by household size, but are set at $13,590 for a single person or $27,750 for a family of four in 2022.

However, executive director of the National Energy Assistance Directors Association, Mark Wolfe, said most states set it at 150 percent of the federal poverty level with some going as high as 60 percent of state median income.

So in higher-income states like California and Massachusetts, 60 percent of the state median income can be up to 200 percent of the federal poverty level. 

Typically, 85 percent of the money goes towards helping with heating costs and 15 percent is allocated to cooling.

To apply, check with your state's website.
