How to save power at home
We all learned about the renewable and non-renewable sources
of energy in school. However, we never paid much attention to the rapid
consumption of the non-renewable sources of energy until recently. The
world is faced with severe energy crisis now and none of us remain
unaffected anymore. Should we leave everything to the governments, or can
we do something to save power? The answer is simple: we can.
Let us look at how you can save power at
Computer: More often than not, we
do not switch off our monitors even after we have shut down our computers.
Keep the monitor and the computer switched off when you are not using
them. Start practicing this even when at work. You will help save some
more power for the world.
Light bulbs: You must
have seen compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs being advertised all the
time. You must have even used them at times. As a power-saving measure,
start using the CFL light bulbs as much as you can. If you are thinking
they are more expensive than the regular bulbs, the benefits of the CFL
bulbs will prove much more cost-effective in the long turn by the amount
of power they will save.
Air Conditioner: Set the
temperature at the minimum or maximum best you are comfortable with,
depending on the season. Try not to set it at too high or too low
temperatures. Setting the air conditioner at reasonable temperatures helps
save a lot of energy.
Washing Machines: Do you use
your washing machine as often as you want? Do you use your washing machine
even when there are not enough clothes to wash? Minimize the number of
washes by washing full load of clothes every time.
Television: Take off the power plug of your
television set when not using it. This may not sound a big deal but this
tiny step will help save power.
Geysers: Keep the
geyser thermostat at the minimum heat. You do not need to heat the water
at a very high temperature or for too long.
Refrigerator: Bring hot food to room temperatures
before putting it into the refrigerator. You can also save power by taking
cold or frozen food out of the refrigerator much before the mealtime,
thereby saving power in heating it.
Car: For an
air-conditioner equipped car, pull up the windows of your car before
switching on the air-conditioner.
