Top 10 ways to Save Power

Listed below are some easy tips to drastically bring down your utility bill:

  1. Weather: During hot weather, lower the thermostat. It allows the AC run longer. In cold weather, turn on the heater in intervals. Remember, heating is three times more expensive than cooling.
  2. For PCs and Laptops: Make use of the power management option available in all PCs and laptops.
  3. Go for showers: Take showers instead of baths. It saves both water and power.
  4. Use cold water: It is better for our clothes to be washed in cold water instead of hot water.
  5. The CFL bulbs: Compact fluorescent lamps last 10 times longer than regular bulbs and save up to $30.
  6. Drying dishes: We can let the dishes air dry naturally rather than use the power-consuming driers to do so.
  7. Turn off electrical devices promptly: Turning off any electrical devices when not in use saves up to 30% on your utility bill.
  8. Energy label products: These products meet the strict guidelines set by the government’s energy department.
  9. Programmable appliances: These devices, though costly, are programmed for optimum performance under various conditions.
  10. Use curtains: Curtains keep out the heat during the day or keep in night time winter warmth.

Points to remember:

  • Though these tips appear simple to follow, they require resolution from you to implement them in your daily life.
  • Due to the easily accessible resources, we have taken the power available to us for granted.
  • In spite of reading and hearing a lot about the global warming, we turn a deaf ear reminding us that it is not our job to worry about.
  • But, the clock is ticking. The power available to us from energy resources is reducing day by day.
  • It is our collective responsibility to secure the future of our loved ones .
