Follow these 3 top tips to save energy at home.
Low Energy Lighting, More Money Savings
There are two main kinds of energy-saving light bulbs available. Compact Fluorescent Lamp (CFL) light bulbs use far less energy than traditional light bulbs. Light Emitting Diode (LED) lights also use less power and can often run for a long time from a battery, making them ideal for lighting sheds, under kitchen cabinets and inside cupboards. Although they sometimes cost more than traditional bulbs, they last a lot longer – and you’ll make your money back in electricity savings. Swap over to low energy lighting indoors and outside to start saving energy at home now.
Switch It off, Standby is Not Good Enough
Leaving appliances on standby saps energy without giving any great benefit. Switching off and on again only takes a minute or two more and some newer devices will do it automatically.Yes! Computers, TVs, DVD players and microwaves use electricity to power the clock and remember all the settings you program into them. For example, when you turn your television off, it still draws power to remember the last channel you viewed and to turn on instantly without a lengthy warm-up time. So the more energy you save, the better for your pockets and the environment.
Buy Energy Efficient Appliances, Please Don’t Take Chances
Running appliances make up a significant percentage of your bills – in fact, fridges and freezers are the biggest contributors to your home energy bill after air-conditioning in the average Nigerian home. It therefore makes sense to invest in energy- efficient appliances when you come to upgrade your goods. All appliances now come with energy efficiency ratings. If you need to buy a new fridge, oven or washing machine, buying the most energy efficient model you can afford can be a wise buy in the long run. Second-hand appliances can sometimes be energy efficient too.
