In times of rising inflation and stagnating wages, monthly electricity bills are draining your wallet incrementally. It makes your already overdrawn budget difficult to manage.
But if I tell you, there is a way out of this serious problem. It’s possible to cut your bills without going over the legal boundary. Here are the simple ways using which you can lower your electricity bills:
We have all heard of phantom stories that excite and sometimes make us anxious. But in the world of electricity there are phantoms that lead to energy losses. It’s a well-researched phenomenon, and studies suggest that around 10% of a household’s average energy is lost through these losses.
Even if a device is not operational, it consumes energy and leads to phantom losses. To avoid this, it is recommended to disconnect the device when it is not in use. However, this can be very redundant when done for every device in the home. With a power strip, you can turn off all of your devices at the same time avoiding energy losses.
Keep Right Temperature – Due to an ordinance issued by the Ministry of Energy, from January 1, 2020, all air conditioning systems will have a standard temperature setting of 24 ° C. Consumers who wish to use them at lower temperatures can use them manually. This decision has a specific rationale that a reduction from 18 ° C to 24 ° C will reduce energy consumption by 24%. Therefore, 24 ° C is the ideal temperature for air conditioning to strike a balance between energy saving and comfort for residential purposes.
Use Fan + AC Synergy – When you come home on a hot day, your first inclination might be to turn the air conditioner on the coldest setting. But energy experts say this doesn’t speed up the cooling process. In fact, it makes your AC device harder than necessary. This will use even more energy, which will add to your electricity bill. There are other ways you can maximize the cold air coming out of your air conditioner. Using a fan with your air conditioner can significantly lower the hot temperatures in your home – and cut your energy bills.
Avoid Using Heating Devices – Avoid using heat emitting devices such as dryers and ovens during the hottest hours of the day. When you run your dryer it draws warm air into your home, and using your oven adds extra warm air to your home, making your air conditioner work harder.
In summer, air conditioning systems experience a higher energy load compared to other times of the year. Closing the blinds allows you to block out direct sunlight and the heat from the sun. They reduce unwanted solar heat gains and keep your home cooler. They also serve as insulation in winter and reduce the possible loss of heat through the window.
The use of energy-efficient devices is the key to long-term energy savings. For example, current energy-efficient refrigerators consume 40 percent less energy than conventional models in 2001. Likewise, when using ceiling fans, always use capacitors which offer zero to minimal loss of capacitance. This ensures maximum energy utilization and best energy use for the money.
Wiring installations are carried out for a very long period of time and cannot be changed frequently. They account for a significant portion of our energy consumption. Having a wiring installation with 100% bundled highly conductive wires and cables offer lower internal resistance. This leads to considerable energy savings compared with alternatives.
