As Einstein said, “Look deep into nature and you will understand everything better.”
And as it was very well said by me, “Save the Earth, it’s our only source of chocolate!”
Saving Electricity is the Least we can and should do to prevent any Harm to Our Mother Earth. What’s in it for you? You Save Money as well!
It’s more of adjusting and figuring out WHERE electricity is actually Needed and WHEN it is needed. Here is a list of things you can do to save Electricity Drastically:
-Embrace the Natural Light!
Don’t always rely on your tube-light! Open the curtains and let the natural light come in!
-Change The Bulb!
Replacing regular incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent (CFL) or LED bulbs is a big energy saver. Incandescent bulbs release 98% of their consumed energy through heat, while CFL and LED bulbs are much more energy efficient and last several times longer.
- CFL bulbs were the first alternative to incandescent bulbs, and they use only about 1/4 the energy of incandescent bulbs. They contain trace amounts of mercury, so they must be disposed of properly when they burn out.
- LED bulbs are newer to the market. They’re more expensive than CFLs, but they last longer and don’t contain mercury.
-Turn off the lights.
This is the simplest, most common way to save electricity, and it really works. Start paying attention to how many lights are on in your house at a given time. Be mindful of how many lights you really need to be using at once. When you leave a room, make a habit of turning off the lights, every single time.
- Use light bulbs which don’t need to “warm up” for areas that have lights which are used for short periods of time. This information should be written on the bulb’s packaging.
- If you really want to go all out, have your family use just one or two rooms at night, rather than spreading out all over the house and keeping your entire home lit.
- For maximum electricity savings, use candles! This old-fashioned system of providing light at night is effective, romantic and peaceful. If you don’t find it practical to use candles every night, try doing it just once or twice a week. Be careful doing this with little kids, though – make sure all of your family members know how to handle candles safely.
-Unplug any appliances that aren’t in use.
-Replace old appliances with energy-saving models.
-Reduce your reliance on appliances.
3. Heating & Cooling
-Use the air conditioner less frequently. Sometimes it’s unavoidable to use the air conditioner, but there’s no reason to have it on from the beginning of spring to the end of the summer without ever turning it off. Find other ways to cool yourself down when possible.
-Keep your home at a low temperature during the winter. You save a lot of energy and money by keeping your home a few degrees lower than normal during the winter. If you get cold, put on a sweater instead of turning up the thermostat.
-Use less hot water. Heating water takes a lot of energy. It’s not necessary to take cold showers, but being mindful of how much hot water you use, and how the water is being heated, can save a lot of electricity and money.
- Make sure your water heater is insulated so that it isn’t losing too much heat.
- Consider getting a water heater that doesn’t run on a continuously lit pilot light.
- Take showers instead of baths. Baths use a lot more water than showers.
- Take shorter showers. Spending 20 minutes in the shower uses up a lot of electricity
