By the Efficient or Optimum use of different Electrical & Electronic Appliances we can save lot of Electricity/Energy/Power Consumption and Decrease to Electricity Bill Payment
* Efficient or Optimum use of Refrigerator (Freeze) for saving/conserving Energy/Electricity/Power:
1). Before Buying New Refrigerator Analyze Actual Size Requirement and then Prefer to buy 5 Star Rated & Lowest Annual Energy Consuming Model Among different companies’ Refrigerator.
2). Set Refrigerator on Plain (Flat) Place so that Refrigerator do not Fluctuate on Floor. Also install your Refrigerator properly leaving 2 to 4 inches space between wall and Refrigerator so that air can easily circulate around the refrigerator. These setting decrease pressure on compressor and stop energy wastage.
3). Avoid keeping hot eating items in Refrigerator directly and letting hot items come to normal temperature before keeping in Refrigerator.
4). Regularly defrost manual-defrost refrigerators and freezers because frost buildup increase the amount of energy needed to keep the motor running. Frost makes Refrigerator’s motor work harder and wastes energy. Don’t allow more than one-quarter inch of frost to build up.
5). Make sure your refrigerator door seals are airtight. For checking this Use a slip of paper to check the door seals. Close the door on the paper, and then see if you can pull it out easily. If it pulls right out, your door may need new seals or the refrigerator may need to be replaced. If it sticks tightly in place and you have to tug to get it out, that means the door seals are working properly.
6). Make sure to cover properly liquids and wrap foods stored in the refrigerator. Uncovered foods release moisture and make the compressor work harder.
7). Avoid opening the doors of the refrigerators frequently.
8). Don’t leave the fridge door open for longer unnecessarily, as cold air will escape.
9). Use small cabinets for storing of frequently used items.
10). Before opening the Refrigerator Door, Plan properly for which purposes door has to open (Mean Decide what you want from the refrigerator or freezer before you open the door). By doing this it would be possible to open Refrigerator Door for low time & low number for stopping wastage of energy.
11). Vacuum the coils of Refrigerator every few months in order to lower your energy bill and for keeping condenser working better.
12). Don’t keep your refrigerator or freezer too cold, it unnecessarily consumes more energy. Set the refrigerator temperature between 36° F and 42° F. set the freezer control so the temperature is between -5° F and +6° F. A small thermometer placed in the refrigerator or freezer will help you set it correctly.
13). Clean the Refrigerator (Freeze). In a year once or twice, clean dust off the condenser coils, fins, evaporator pan and motor. A clean unit runs more efficiently. Unplug the unit and clean with a vacuum cleaner or long-handled brush.
14). Always keep Refrigerator (Freeze) away from direct heat. Set to the Refrigerator or freezer away from direct sunlight and other heat sources such as Microwave, Ovens or Ranges. Heat will cause the Refrigerator’s motor to use more energy to stay cold.
15). Don’t place your refrigerator or automatic defrost freezer in a garage, porch or other unheated space. If the temperature drops below 60° F, the Refrigerator (Freeze) may become low efficient and cost more money to operate or the compressor may stop running, causing the temperature inside the freezer compartment to rise. Stored food could spoil.
16). In Latest new advance technique, some Refrigerators (Freeze) contain Five in One convertible Concept. In these Refrigerators, Freezer can be use like Normal Refrigerator (Freeze). It increases Refrigerator’s total capacity. In winter season when Freezer is not in use then electricity consumption can be decreased after turning off to Freezer. If you are alone at home or you have low items for putting in Refrigerator then Set Freezer’s Temperature equal to Refrigerator (Freeze) and turn off Refrigerator. Only single use of Freezer on normal temperature decrease consumption of electricity and save energy.
* Efficient or Optimum use of Washing Machine for saving/conserving Energy/Electricity/Power:
1). Always wash & dry clothes only with full loads because Washing Machine Consume same amount energy whether Clothes are low or full loaded. Running full loads allows running of washer & dryer less often.
2). Always use optimal low quantity of water. More Quantity of Water put more pressure on Machine Motor.
3). Setting of timer facility is beneficial for saving energy.
4). Use the correct amount of detergent. With the correct amount of water correct amount of detergent is helpful for washing clothes at proper minimum time which stop excessive washing machine running time.
5). Only in some few cases use hot water only for very dirty clothes or when greatest cleaning is needed.
6). Always use cold water in the rinse cycle. Rinse water temperature has no effect on cleaning. Use of cold water is helpful for saving energy as energy is not used for heating of water.
7). Always prefer natural drying over electric dryers. If there is proper sunlight, proper flowing wind and don’t have any urgency then do not use washing machine’s dryer for drying clothes. Let the clothes dry in Natural Sunlight and in Natural Flowing Air.
8). Always try to dry full loads of clothes in dryer.
9). Try to dry one load right after another because this uses less energy because the dryer is already hot.
10). Always make sure to stop the dryer as soon as the clothes get dry. Unnecessarily running of dryer is wastage of energy.
11). Adjust the water level. If Washing Machine’s Washer allows controlling the load’s water level, then adjust the level according to laundry load size. Energy can be saved by using less water for small loads.
12). Clean the lint filter regularly. After each load, clean the filter to keep the dryer running efficiently. Also, regularly check the air vent and hose for clogging.
* Efficient or Optimum use of Dishwasher for saving/conserving Energy/Electricity/Power:
1). Always Run Dishwasher with full loads. Wait until for having a full load cutlery or utensils before running dishwasher. Full loads use the same amount of hot water and energy as smaller loads. In Full Loads, Dishwasher has to run few times So Fewer loads running of dishwasher save energy.
2). Properly use short cycles of washing dishes. Select the shortest cycle that properly cleans dishes. Shorter cycles use less hot water and less energy.
3). Skip rinsing the dishes. Rinsing dishes before loading them into the dishwasher wastes energy. If have to do rinse, use cold water.
4). Regularly clean the filter of Dishwasher. If dishwasher has a filter screen then clean it regularly. A clean Dishwasher runs more efficiently and decrease wastage of energy.
5). Let dry dishes naturally. Stop the dishwasher before the drying cycle and open the door to let the dishes air dry.
* Efficient or Optimum use of Grinder/Mixers for saving/conserving Energy/Electricity/Power:
1). Try to avoid dry grinding in mixers and grinders as it takes longer time than liquid grinding. Some liquid or soft humid food material grinds easily. Mixer and Grinder consume more energy for grinding dry food items.
* Efficient or Optimum use of Electric Iron Press for saving/conserving Energy/Electricity/Power:
1). Set appropriate regulator on medium position for ironing.
2). Do not put much water on clothes while ironing.
3). Always avoid iron on wet clothes.
4). Whenever you buy Iron/Press then always give preference to star rating. Five stars rated electric iron could be some expensive but in long run this star rated Iron/Press save a good quantity of Power/Energy/Electricity.
* Efficient or Optimum use of Air Conditioners for saving/conserving Energy/Electricity/Power:
1). Always try to buy latest New Technologies’ ISEER/Inverter Technologies 2019 or BEE (Bureau of Energy Efficiency) Rated latest Five Star Energy Efficient Air Conditioner. Year 2018’s Five Star Rated AC are equal to Three Star Rated AC of Year 2019 Model. Likewise Year 2018’s Three Star AC are equal to One Star Rated AC of Year 2019 Model. Latest New Technologies AC are more energy efficient. So always try to buy Latest more star rated AC. These more Star Rated AC might be some expensive but due to more energy saving efficiency these ACs are ultimately much beneficial in long term period.
2). Choose the correct size AC for your home or office. Over sized AC costs more money. If you are unable to determine correct size AC for your Home or Office then you can take service of a qualified specialist for determining the proper size AC. A specialist Analyze Space of your Home or Office for determining the requirement of proper size AC.
3). Install Split or Window AC at a proper place of Room from where AC and walls have proper space for proper air circulation.
4). Prefer air conditioners having automatic temperature cut off.
5). Always keep the condenser and filter clean. Keep leaves, grass and other debris away from the outside condenser. Also, clean the filter monthly and replace it when required. A clean condenser and filter help the unit run more efficiently.
6). Always try to keep the sunlight out from room. Closing of curtains, drapes, black film on window glasses on the sunny side of room during the day help to keep the house cooler, it makes the Air Conditioner to consume low energy for bringing the temperature at a comfortable level.
7). Try to install the Window Air Conditioner out from direct sunlight. Locate the AC out of direct sunlight and avoid the east and west sides of the house. Placing the air conditioner in direct sunlight causes it to work harder to cool your home. Try to install AC in shadow of any Tree adjacent of house.
8). Tightly close or Seal the doors and windows properly when Air Conditioner is on for Cooling. Every time when door is opened then cooling goes out and heat come in, this process unnecessarily increase load on AC for making cool and increase energy consumption.
9). Leave enough proper space between Air Conditioner and the walls to allow better air circulation.
10). Always try to set your thermostat as high as comfortably possible in the summer. Low difference between the indoor and outdoor temperatures, the lower will be energy consumption.
11). Always avoid setting the Air Conditioner thermostat at high initially. Don’t set Air Conditioner thermostat at a very colder setting than normal because when you turn on Air Conditioner, it will not cool your home any faster and could result in unnecessarily excessive cooling as well as excessive energy consumption.
12). Totally avoid to place or set any Electronic or Electrical items like televisions, stereos, computers, lamps or TV sets etc near your Air-Condition thermostat. The thermostat senses heat from these appliances, which become cause of Air conditioner to run longer unnecessarily mean more energy consumption.
13). Try to Plant trees or shrubs for shading to Air-Conditioning units but do not block the airflow. A unit operating in the shade uses at least 10% low electricity as compared to the same one operating in the sun.
14). Proper Operation of the ceiling fan in conjunction with Air condition (Specially with Window Air Condition) Unit is helpful for spreading of cooled Air more effectively throughout the room and make to operate the Air Conditioner at higher temperature.
15). Replace coils. For maximum efficiency, change the indoor and outdoor compressor coils when replacing an older central air conditioner.
16). Get your Air Condition Unit tuned up at Proper time. Try to get your central air conditioner tuned up by a qualified specialist mechanic every other year. This can help the unit operate more efficiently and may prevent failures in the middle of peak season. Try to get Air Conditioner Unit servicing in the very starting of summer season before First day Air Condition Unit Starting Operation.
17). Only cool to that room where need is or where Air Condition Unit is installed. Close unused rooms to keep cooled air in areas where it is most needed.
18). Always avoid of making more unnecessary heating. Delay chores that produce heat and moisture until the cooler parts of the day or evening. Try to limit dish washing, laundering and cooking on any hot or humid day. These activities make room more uncomfortable and require Air Condition Unit to work harder mean more energy consumption.
19). Try to use the microwave. Using of microwave oven rather than standard oven or range creates less heat and humidity at home.
20). Quickly turn off all electronic or electric items you are not using. Don’t leave electronic or electric items, such as televisions, stereos, Laptops and computers on, if you don’t need them. These items produce heat. Extra heat requires more energy consumption for Air Condition Unit for making cool.
21). Always keep vents clear. Keep furniture and drapes away from Air vents. This allows the cool air to move out into the rooms and keeps Air Condition Unit running more unnecessarily.
22). Remove the Air Condition unit at the end of the season. Take your room air conditioner out of the window when the season is over. If Air Condition Unit has to leave in the installed place, then properly cover outside of the AC unit.
23). During continuous running of AC when temperature of room become cool or very cool then switch off AC. Again after some time, AC can be switch on when you feel hot.
24). ALWAYS SET YOUR AC TEMPERATURE AT 24-26 DEGREE CELSIUS OR ABOVE FOR GETTING APPROPRIATE NORMAL COOLING TEMPERATURE. BY SETTING AC TEMPERATURE AT 24-26 DEGREE CELSIUS OR ABOVE NOT JUST APPROPRIATE FOR YOUR BODY OR ROOM TEMPERATURE BUT IS ALSO HELPFUL FOR SAVING OR CONSERVING GOOD QUANTITY OF ENERGY/POWER OR ELECTRICITY. IF WE SET AC TEMPERATURE AT 26 OR ABOVE DEGREE CELSIUS AND ALSO ON TO CEILING FAN ON NORMAL SPEED, THEN CEILING FAN PROPER CIRCULATE AC’S COOLING AIR IN WHOLE ROOM WHICH IS VERY HELPFUL FOR SAVING OR CONSERVING GOOD QUANTITY OF ENERGY/POWER OR ELECTRICITY.
25). USE AC ONLY AS A LAST OPTION FOR GETTING COOLNESS BECAUSE NORMALLY EVEN ONE FIVE STAR RATED AC OF 1 TO 1.5 TON CONSUME EQUAL ELECTRICITY/POWER OR ENERGY OF 15 TO 25 CEILING FANS. SO IF USE OF SOME CEILING, WALL OR TABLE FANS IS APPROPRIATE FOR GETTING AIR IN SUMMER THEN TRY TO TOTALLY AVOID USE OF ACS. BY DOING SO HUGE QUANTITY OF ELECTRICITY/POWER OR ENERGY CAN BE SAVED.
* Efficient or Optimum use of Water Heater or Geyser for saving/conserving Energy/Electricity/Power:
1). Always try to Purchase an energy-efficient model of Water Heater or Geyser. One time purchasing cost will be high but lifetime operating cost is low in the long run and save much electricity as well as money.
2). Before buying any Water Heater or Geyser; consider family’s hot water needs. Then Purchase the appropriate size Water Heater or Geyser. Big size water heater or geyser uses more energy than needed. If size is too small, then water heater or geyser have to run many time which waste time & energy unnecessarily.
3). Always get Installed water heater or geyser near the kitchen or bathroom. The kitchen is where we use the hottest water for different purposes. Likewise in bathroom, hot water is required for normally bathing purpose. When the water heater or geyser is installed near the kitchen or bathroom, then hot water has to travel low and less heat is lost.
4). Insulate water pipes properly. Use half to one inch thick foam or pipe tape for insulation wherever pipes are exposed. Proper pipe insulation reduces electricity consumption of water heater.
5). Set the water temperature to 120° F. It takes less energy to heat water during lower temperature of winter. If you have an electric water heater, you’ll have to remove the cover plate of the thermostat to adjust the temperature.
6). Quickly Repair to dripping or leaking part of water heater or geyser on time. If the water heater or geyser leaks to hot water, then the energy used for heating is wasting of energy as well as money.
7). The energy consumption of geyser can be considerably decreased if all the family members bathe in quick sequence and switch off to geyser quickly as it is no longer required.
* Efficient or Optimum use of TV, Computer, Laptop for saving/conserving Energy/Electricity/Power:
1). A television in standby mode can use up to as much as half the energy consumption as when it is switched on. So switch off the button of Television from main plug also.
2). Configure computer to “energy saving” mode in which computer will automatically change to the state of low consumption.
3). Turn off your computer at night instead of leaving it on. Also turn off your computer whenever you are not going to use it for more than half an hour.
4). Always avoid switching on the power when TV, Computers and Audio Systems are not in use. Just Idle operation leads to an energy loss.
5). If computer have to keep on by any reason, then turn off the monitor because monitor alone consumes more than half the system’s energy.
6). Screen savers save computer screens, not energy. Starting ups and shutting downs do not use extra energy. So when there is not any work quickly shut down computers which save energy.
* Efficient or Optimum use of Room Heater or Furnace for saving/conserving Energy/Electricity/Power:
1). Whenever you plan for buying of Room Heater or Furnace, make sure that they are the right size for the rooms they have to heat. Big Size Room Heater or Furnace for small or medium room unnecessarily waste energy and increase to electricity bill.
2). Always try to Purchase an energy-efficient Furnace or Room Heater. Select an energy-efficient furnace model by looking for Annual Energy Consumption Units or BEE (Bureau of Energy Efficiency) rating.
3). Maintain properly to the furnace and Room Heaters. Clean your furnace filters monthly/two monthly or replace if necessary. Filters get blocked up or congested with dust and dirt that circulate in a house. Air has a more difficult time passing through the filter, and then furnace has to work a lot harder in order to heat the house. A clean furnace and room heater run more efficiently.
4). Properly insulate your house windows and doors. Seal or Close all holes or areas of noticeable leaks around windows and doors. Removable caulking is a good option for windows which can be opened easily in summer but in winter keep cool air out of home.
5). Let the sunlight in your house properly. The sun’s energy & light put noticeable effect on the temperature of home, especially when windows and doors directly come on the way of Sunlight. Keep window shades and drapes open during winter months for coming in of Sunlight for proper heat.
6). A portable small space heater can heat a single room without using furnace which can heat the whole house. Using of space heater to heat all or most part of home costs more. For small space or single room, heater is good option which also saves energy as compared to furnace.
7). Use the fireplace sparingly. Many older natural fireplaces are inefficient and draw more heat out of the house than they produce.
* Efficient or Optimum use of Fans for saving/conserving Energy/Electricity/Power:
1). Try to Purchase New Energy Efficient Star rated less energy units consuming (Ceiling/Wall/Exhaust) Fans. New improved technology fans consume low energy than conventional old fans however these energy efficient fans are some costly but in long term period save much energy.
2). If Air Conditioner is used in any place then use efficiently fans with Air Conditioner. Fans are helpful for proper circulation of cool air Produced by Air Conditioner. Air Conditioners consume much energy than fans but proper use of fans with Air Conditioners reduces stress on Air Conditioners’ running and save much energy. Try to use oscillating or revolving wall fans for greater circulation.
3). If suited then try to use a whole-house fan. These types of fan are mounted in the attic and ventilate entire home. Open some windows before turning on a whole-house fan. A Well qualified specialist or contractor can help you for determining about need of whole house fan.
4). Always keep clean & Maintain fans in good condition. Keep fans in good working condition. Check the manufacturer’s recommendations for proper care and maintenance. These steps help in controlling of the operating costs.
5). Always try to Install exhaust fans at a higher height than ceiling fans.
6). Replace immediately old out of order condenser or capacitor which makes slow speed of fans.
7). Replace immediately old conventional regulators with new improved electronic regulators for ceiling fans.
8). Set fan speed by regulator according to temperature. If there is less heat then low or medium speed of fan is appropriate. In very hot days high speed of fan is necessary. Always avoid unnecessary high speed setting of fans.
* Efficient or Optimum use of Water Motors at Farms or Any Other Place for saving/conserving Energy/Electricity/Power:
1). Try to install water motors on flat surface or on some lower point level than surface.
2). Level of water drawing & throwing pipe should not be on higher point. Height of water drawing & throwing pipe should be on lower level.
3). Always Lubricate pump sets/motors at regular intervals.
4). Always avoid using of multiple bend pipes & try to use very low bend covered strong pipes to get low resistance water flow discharge.
5). Avoid sharp or L type bends and use U shaped bends on jointing points of pipes. Also try to avoid many joints in the Water Pump’s suction and delivery lines. These points increase stress on water motors or pumps and increase consumption of energy.
6). Try to adopt suitable crop changing cycle system so that land’s proper fertility power remain for long time and least water consumption required for irrigation.
7). Try to install shunt capacitors at terminals of three-phase motor which is helpful for reducing current and ensure longer life to your pump set or water motor.
8). Try to use low-resistance foot valves.
* Efficient & Optimum use of Microwave for saving/conserving Energy/Electricity/Power:
In a microwave oven, arrange unevenly shaped items with the thickest portion to the outside. Stir or turn the food over to speed up cooking time. Microwave is more efficient than a cooker for reheating food.
* Efficient & Optimum use of Electric Ovens for saving/conserving Energy/Electricity/Power:
1). The oven is expensive to use so always try to use oven as sparingly and efficiently as possible. Always try to use oven for more than just one item, in oven one item can be cooked at a higher temperature at the top of the oven, and simultaneously at a lower temperature at the bottom.
2). Always avoid opening the oven door & peeking again and again for checking cooking because by doing this we lose 20% of the accumulated heat. More energy is required for bringing the temperature back up in oven.
3). Reduce the heat & Cook on medium temperature. Do not start cooking on a higher heat setting. First to cook on high temperature and then lower the temperature and simmer the food until fully cooked. A fast boil doesn’t cook faster than a slow boil, but it does use more energy.
4). Use retained heat for cooking food. Turn off cook tops or ovens just few minutes before food reach final completion of cooking. Retained heat finishes the job without using more energy.
5). If possible then consider & install a natural gas range or oven. Natural gas appliances cost less to operate as compared to electric appliances and offer better temperature control.
6). Always make sure that the oven seals should be tight enough. Even a small gap allows heat to escape and wastes energy. If a piece of paper passes through the closed door easily, then the seal is not tight enough and should be replaced quickly.
7). Check the oven temperature. Try to set oven temperature on medium point. If the oven temperature is too high, oven will consume more energy unnecessarily and waste energy. It also may not turn out food as how we anticipate.
8). Microwaves ovens consume 50 % less energy as compared to conventional Electric/Gas stoves.
* Efficient & Optimum use of Toasters & Kettles for saving/conserving Energy/Electricity/Power:
1). The toaster is more energy efficient as compared to any other appliance for toasting bread.
2). Whenever making tea, coffee or hot water then boil only the amount of water required and also make sure the lid of electric kettle remain properly covered.
* Efficient & Optimum use of Electric Stove for saving/conserving Energy/Electricity/Power:
1). When cooking on Electric Stove then turns off electric stove some minutes before the specified cooking time. Heating remain on stove for some minutes after turning off electric stove is sufficient for baking food completely. This process saves some energy.
2). Always use flat-bottomed pans that make full contact with the cooking coil of Electric Stove. By doing this, flat pans absorb maximum heating from electric stove for cooking food items and decrease wastage of heating.
* Efficient or Optimum use of Electricity/Energy at Offices, Shops or Business Premises for saving/conserving Energy/Electricity/Power:
1). Always try to avoid excessive illumination and keep only as many fans and lights on as required.
2). Always Purchase really needed efficient equipment. Before Purchasing Electronic or Electrical Items, Look for Energy Efficient Star Rated low energy/power consuming equipments, such as computers, printers, LED Bulbs, Fans, Air Conditioners, Heaters or Blowers etc. These efficient electronic or electrical items consume less energy than standard office equipment.
3). Don’t let the computers or other electrical/electronic items run all day unnecessarily. Only power on the Computers, Monitors, Printers, Fans, Air Conditioners, Coolers, Heaters, Blowers, Fax machines when really needed. Don’t leave them on after finishing work. Computers and other office equipment still use energy in sleep mode. When not required then quickly turn off all electrical/electronic items even for small and long duration of time.
4). Try not to use of neon or electric lighting sign boards. Use only painted shiny sign boards.
5). Try to use only minimum required number of LED Bulbs/Tubes/Lighting for all required places of shops, showrooms, hotels or offices for proper illumination.
6). Always try to switch on Air Conditioners and Coolers at least 15 to 30 Minutes late after opening Offices/Shops/Business Premises and switch off 30 minutes to 1 hour early before closing Offices/Shops/Business Premises. Preferably, do not use these heavy duty appliances in low heating temperature and use fans. Only use AC and Coolers in high heating temperature when really required.
7). Open and close the shops and showrooms precisely according to customers visiting time.
8). Try to use solar water heaters for hot water requirements of hotels and lodges.
9). All Offices, Companies, Shops, Hotels, Showrooms & Super Markets’ Owners, Directors, Staff Employees, Workers and Members Strictly adopt & implement to Power/Energy/Electricity saving habits and stop to all type of wastages.
* Efficient or Optimum use of Lights for saving/conserving Energy/Electricity/Power:
1). Always try to make maximum use of daylight and do not turn on electric lights and lamps.
2). Try to use one large LED Bulb/LED Tube at a proper central place instead of a many small LED Bulbs or LED Tubes. One 30-Watt LED bulb installed on proper centralized place consumes less energy and gives more lighting than four 10-watt LED bulbs.
3). Use light or low watt LED bulbs in areas of room where bright or high lighting is not required.
4). Always make it sure that all outdoor lightings are turned off during the day. Use of motion-detectors lights or timer switches is helpful for this purpose.
5). Open to all curtains and shades during the day instead of using electric lighting. Consider Sun Lights and solar tubes during remodeling or new construction designing of Premises. This Step allows the maximum use of natural daylight.
6). Make Proper Plan for lighting in Premises. All the rooms do not need the same amount of general light. A good lighting plan reduces lighting costs and provides all the light really needed. For Small Room Low Watt LED Bulbs/Tubes are enough while for big rooms, high watt LED Bulbs/Tubes are required.
7). Quickly turn off lights. Even for short periods of time, turn off lights when not in use. Turning lights off and on, uses less energy than if they are left on all the time which waste energy.
8). Try to install a timer for indoor lights. Using of timers to turn lights on and off is helpful for proper regulating use.
9). Always avoid long-life incandescent light bulbs and Even CFL. Consider and use only LED (Light Emitting Diode) lighting Bulbs/Tubes. LEDs are becoming more common for all places for lighting purposes. Initial cost is more, but the lights use 10 times less energy and last 50 times longer life as compared to conventional incandescent light bulbs.
10). Try to make position lights properly. Try to set position of light sources closer to the area required for illumination. This saves energy by not over-lighting for unused area.
11). Try to use of ‘task lighting’ rather than whole room lighting when a small amount of light is required for single side or a corner of any room.
12). Regularly clean all Light fittings, LED Bulbs/Tubes, Reflectors and Lampshades for proper maintaining high illumination.
13). Slim LED Tube lights give better light and consume less electricity/energy/power than Conventional Tube Lights.
14). Try to Use of new electronic chokes in place of conventional copper chokes.
15). For taking advantage of daylight, use light-coloured, shiny, loose-weave curtains on windows which allow daylight to penetrate the room.
* IN SUMMER AND WINTER SEAON, THERE ARE SOME IMPORTANT POINTS WHICH SHOULD TAKE CARE FOR SAVING POWER/ ELECTRICITY/ELECTRIC ENERGY & FOR DECREASING ELECTRICTY BILLING PAYMENT.
* In Summer Efficient or Optimum use of Electricity/Energy/Power for saving/conserving Energy/Electricity/Power:
1). A roof garden reduces the load on Air Conditioner. Roof Garden do not let hot to roof quickly.
2). Keep curtains, drapes or shades closed during the day.
3). Use ceiling, window, wall or table fans instead of Air Conditioner or Cooler when there is not much hot. Ceiling, Window, Wall & Table Fans use very less electricity as compared to Air Conditioners or Coolers.
4). Make sure use of Air Conditioner or Cooler only when there is really much hot outside.
5). If there is proper space then plant Single or many trees around building premises because trees help for shading of any building premises in the summer and keep building premises cooler.
6). If it is possible then install Window Air Conditioners or Cooler in the shade of Trees or Wall etc. If unit is in the direct bright sunlight, it uses up to 5% more energy than if it is in the shade.
