Since electricity is used by all members of the household, the best result will come out only when all family members come together and help with energy savings. That is why we should discuss with our family the different ways in which we can contribute.
Below we will show you how everyone can help:
Disconnect electronic devices that are not being used. Most of us forget to turn off the devices after use and this causes a waste of energy. You should know that, even when you are not using the appliances, you still consume energy, in particular, the appliances that have “standby” light.
Your children can be very helpful if you can assign the obligation to disconnect Computers, Laptops or other devices when nobody is using them. The device that generally stays disconnected most of the time is the charger. The charger can be from your laptop, the iPhone, cell phone, among other things; this makes it a threat to your electricity bill
Try to use the devices to the best of your abilities; for example, when you are going to wash dishes, you must load dishwasher at full capacity; washing two small loads separately can be more expensive than washing a large single load; similar is the case of the clothes dryer, you must wait for the load to get complete, as it will help you save your electricity bill.
If you want to save more money on the bill, then you can dry the clothes outdoors. It is the best way to use natural resources and save money.
Regular maintenance is essential, but most of us do not realize its importance. A well-functioning device can help in saving energy, so it is important that you regularly check your appliances. The performance of air conditioners can be improved by cleaning your air filters regularly. By cleaning air filters, you will quickly get cold your room and you can help in saving energy.
In the same way with the coils of the refrigerator should be checked regularly. You must replace the coil every six months to make it work efficiently. If you use the usual coil for a long time, the refrigerator would have to work harder to keep it cool. Also keeps the refrigerator door opening to a minimum.
- The last suggestion is more of a fun project for the whole family. Start a campaign called “How can I reduce my electricity bill?” And ask your family members to contribute at least one idea of all the weeks in which the electricity bill can be reduced. The member who contributes to the best idea in the “How can I save my electricity bill?” The campaign can be rewarded.
