We are convinced that our environment needs champions of all occupations. This includes each individual and family in our communities. To enlighten our readers, we have put together a small list of simple ways in which everyone can save energy at home.
Use Natural Light
Open the blinds and switch the lightbulb off. This simple measure saves up quite a bit of energy consumption. It is also healthier and better quality. If the sun is shining bright outside, let it in and enjoy the advantage of natural light.
If you’re not using it, Unplug it.
Most of the things we have at home have a standby mode they go into when not being used. This mode consumes a certain amount of energy completely needlessly. Just unplug your electric devices when you are done using them.
Keep that Fridge Closed
The way fridges work is by triggering the motor to turn on as soon as the temperature drops below certain levels. Each time you stand in front of your fridge wondering what you want, the cold air slips out, hot air slips in and the motor start running again. Try not to leave the door to the fridge open any longer than necessary.
Maintain your Appliances
There are certain appliances that will consume more energy if they are dirty or malfunctioning. Give them the right maintenance and keep them working properly. Clean your air conditioner’s filters regularly, or remove the dust from your fan’s blades. These simple steps can make a huge difference. Just remember to let the sun in, unplug the devices you aren’t using and avoid keeping your fridge open too long. These are three simple examples, within a myriad of ways you can lower your energy consumption at home. If you want to know more, subscribe to the PB Power blog.
