Energy saving tips.


Energy saving tips around your house
- Don’t Leave electrical appliances on standby mode,
-switch off at the socket
In most homes, about 10-15 per cent of the electricity bill
is for lighting.
- Use energy saving light bulbs to cut your
costs considerably.
They may be more expensive to buy than traditional
bulbs, but they are worth the investment as they last over
10 times longer and use up to 4 times less energy.
-No matter what type of lighting you are using, always
turn the lights off when you leave a room.
Use a smaller electrict burner if using a small pan.
-Boiling water in an electric kettle first will save the time
the burner needs to heat the water, and putting a lid on
will help it come to a boil quicker.
-When making a cup of tea, only boil the amount of water
that you need.
Boiling a full kettle unnecessarily is a waste of electricity.
-The location of your fridge can make a difference in how
energy efficient it is.
Make sure it is out of direct sunlight and not close to the
oven.
It is best to keep it against an outside wall so that
the heat it generates can escape easily, and always make
sure that there is a few inches space all around the fridge
so that air can circulate.
Make sure you defrost your fridge and freezer on a
regular basis or whenever necessary.
An iced up freezer will make the freezer work harder,
therefore wasting more energy than needed.
-Only set your fridge to as cold as you need it and avoid
keeping the door open for long period
