Energy Saving Tips.

Cut down on Power consumption - reduce your Electricity bills. Some Energy saving tips and facts for Home and Office.
  • Replacing electricity guzzling ordinary bulbs (Incandescent lamps) with the more efficient - compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) helps reduce electricity consumption by as much as 75 percent.
  • As high as 90 percent of the energy consumed by an ordinary bulb (Incandescent lamp) is given off as heat rather than light.
  • A 15-watt CFL lamp produces the same amount of light as a 60-watt incandescent lamp.
  • Dust your tube lights and lamps. Dirty tube lights and bulbs absorb more and reflect less light.
  • Use of task lighting, which focuses light where it's needed can be a possible solution.
  • Never leave electronic devices on the stand by/sleep mode. They are still consuming electricity even if you are not using them.
  • One will use 3 to 5 percent less energy for each degree the AC is set above 22°C (71.5°F). Setting the thermostat of room AC at 25°C (77°F) helps provide the most comfort at the least cost.
  • Clean the AC filters every month. A dirty air filter reduces airflow and may damage the unit. Clean filters enable the unit to cool down faster and use less energy.
  • Keeping lids on pans while cooking helps to reduce energy consumption.
  • Allow hot and warm foods to cool down and cover them well before putting them in the refrigerator. Refrigerator will use less energy and condensation will reduce.
A little effort on our part can go a very long way in conserving electricity for the future.
