There are many ways to reduce your household’s energy consumption, ranging from simple behavioural adjustments to major home improvements. The two main reasons for energy conservation are to reduce electricity bills (ICE) and to protect the environment. Here are 2 of the most common ways to save energy and electricity in your home.
1. Turn off lights and electrical appliances when not in use.
Turn off your furnace, air conditioners and appliances when you go to bed or leave the house.
Turning off your devices directly on the dismatic can save you even more energy than with the remote control.
Turn off your computer and equipment such as printers or wifi routers at night or when you are away. Most computers have power-saving settings that can be activated to turn off the computer and monitor after a period of inactivity.
2. Switch to energy-saving light bulbs
Energy efficient globes can save you up to 80% on your lighting costs. LED bulbs consume less energy and last longer. This means you spend less money and time replacing them.
Using solar energy can also help your household save money on its energy bills.
By using the solar electricity you generate, you can avoid the costs associated with your electricity subscription. In addition, solar water heating systems can also help you avoid the gas loads often associated with a gas water heater.
