Many electrical appliances like TV, sound system, computer, printer and mobile chargers continue to draw power from the system even when they are kept standby mood. We can easily save this wasted energy by using Smart Power Strips or Advanced Power Strips. These power strips have a built in smart feature. They can shut off the devices power when they are not in use.
Avoid using bulk power consuming lights. We can use energy efficient lights like LED and CFL bulbs.
When you purchase any electrical or electronics appliances you should consider Energy Star compliant products. Some devices label it with star ratings, usually five star rating products have energy efficient features which draws less power when they are on standby mood.
Check for Insulation leaks in your house which may cause hot air entering to your room and run your Air coolers for longer time to cool your room. Same thing happens with your refrigerator too which causes the compressor to run longer time. This is a wasted energy which we have to pay for it.
Don’t use your Laundry, hair dryer, toaster, heater or electric iron and any other heavy power consuming loads at peak time where load demand is maximum, which causes more power drawing from the system and more billing.
Change traditional Electric Water heater thermostats to programmable thermostats. Traditional thermostats often don’t work properly.
Use smart meters or prepaid meters. These meters are very effective in communicating between consumer and their utility.
Try to implement natural cooling system in your building. In summer building roofs naturally receive more heat and sometimes it becomes intolerable. To minimize this suffering we use air conditioners to cool our room. Try to install green roof, which will create healthy and cool atmosphere. It could be a vegetation or solar systems.
You could use home solar systems both for heating purposes in kitchen and powering your house hold equipment.
Check your whole house wiring and switches and sockets which may cause bulk power losses. Long time loose connections generates heat and can damages your devices.
so stop this vampire today and let’s save our money.
I hope this post will be helpful for you.
