Saving Energy at Home

Here are some tips to save energy with sheer efficiency while improving your home environment:

 
1. LOOK TO LED LIGHTING
LED lighting consumes less energy than incandescent lighting and lasts longer. LED bulbs are made with eco-friendly materials unlike normal bulbs which normally emit heat.

2. INVEST IN SOLAR POWER

While expensive, solar panels provide clean energy and provides long-term savings on energy costs. One of the best practices is switching to renewable energy.
3. CHOOSE ENERGY-EFFICIENT APPLIANCES

Like solar power, energy-efficient appliances can reduce overall energy costs. Make sure you select high-rated appliances with upgrades that last longer.
4. OPTIMISE AIR CONDITIONING
For air-conditioning, set the temperature at 24-26°C to save energy while keeping yourself cool. Before going to sleep, set the timer for your air-conditioner.
5. SWITCH OFF WHILE NOT USING

When you are not in the room or using any appliances, remember to switch them off. Leaving the lights or appliances on consumes more energy. In the daytime, give way to natural lighting which is better for your eyes and save energy.
6. KEEP THE LAUNDRY COOL
Wash your laundry in cold water, which saves energy by 90% as compared to hot water. Air or line dry your clothes to save energy.
