How to save electricity: 25 a simple, but the execution tips

To reduce the consumption of energy as at least a fourth part of the absolutely real. Turn off the light, wash the Windows, do not overload the washing machine replace incandescent bulbs... Calculations show that this is really beneficial.

Saving electricity

Do not miss the light of waste

  1. Turn off the light, went from room to room. Installation thermal motion sensors that will turn off the light for you.
  2. The use of local lighting: lighting, floor lamps, wall lights. For example, each time not to turn on the main light source in the room is best set of the backlight of the led strip.
  3. Remember that the cleanliness — the guarantee of the saving. Dirty Windows and dust diffusers reduce the light level in the room 35%.
  4. When repairing, consider that the bright walls and furniture reflect up to 80 percent of the light and the darkness — only at around 12%.
  5. Replace incandescent bulbs with energy saving led. Replacing just one bulb will save about 1 000 per year.

Correctly use electric appliances

  1. In the absence of a dual tariff, electricity meter, turn off all non-essential electrical appliances at night and the charger after a full recharge equipment.
  2. The fridge should be regularly defrosted, if no system Frost. Make sure that the device was so far away from heating devices and to ensure natural ventilation of the rear wall. Put only cold dishes!
  3. Electric kettle
  4. Monitor the performance of burners electric plate and put them just the right size of each dish with a flat bottom.
  5. Cover pots and pans with lids: can reduce heat loss by nearly three times.
  6. Try not to overload the washing machine (the overload increases the consumption of electricity up to 10%) and the use of the average of the temperature. Wash at 30 degrees going from a 35% less energy than washing at 40 degrees.
  7. Use an electric kettle instead of electric stoves to heat the water. It will be much more economic. Boil only the amount of liquid that is necessary at this time.
  8. Regularly clean the fans and air conditioning filters.
  9. Things that require a low temperature, iron the clothes after turning off the iron.
  10. Do not leave equipment, including microwave ovens, televisions, computers, scanners, printers, modems, in the standby mode. This will allow you to save more than 200 kWh / year.
  11. Use the power outlet with a timer.

Buy energy-efficient appliances

  1. All appliances are labeled with the Latin letters a to G. Choosing a technology with low energy class, marked as A and B.
  2. Buy devices that use the latest technology to save energy. For example, increasingly popular induction cooktop that heats only the bottom of the dish and not consuming energy unnecessarily. The efficiency of this kind of plates up to 95%!

Install two-tariff meter

Infrared heater

Two-rate meter allows you to save the night. These accountants are beneficial for those who can use energy-intensive appliances: dishwasher and washing machine, breadmaker — from 23.00 to 7.00. On average, the meter pays for itself in a year.

Don't miss the heat in it

  1. In place of the traditional heater for the use of the air conditioning set to mode heating. If we allow the manufacturer, of course. Many air conditioners can not be used at negative temperatures.
  2. Infrared heater is more economic than the other by 30-80%.
  3. If the house has electric batteries, try to keep it clean so that dust will not absorb the heat, and not having to increase the temperature.
  4. Using a water heater, reduce hot water temperature.
  5. Replace water heater to tankless. So you don't waste electricity at a constant temperature of the water.
  6. Heat water only when needed. Disconnect the boiler from the mains when you leave the house and at night.
  7. Every three months clean the water heater of the scale, which increases the energy consumption by 15-20%.
    • Unplug the unit from the mains and close the water supply.
    • Completely drain the water.
    • Remove the lid of the boiler, gently disconnect the wires and remove the thermostat.
    • Loosen the nuts holding the flange. Press the tab up, turn and throw.
    • Now you can clean the heating element with a brush. To get rid of the plaque and will be of help to the acetic acid and hot water (1 : 5). Just put the heating on for 30 minutes and ensure that the sealing rubber is not in contact with the acid.
