How to save electricity in the home or in an apartment? Probably not those who don't think about it. Doesn't make sense to pay more for electricity if it does not receive any additional benefits in return.
Let's not forget that for the present time, tended to increase in tariffs for utilities. If so, then why not think about how to save money from the family budget. Moreover, this boosts the cost of services for the supply of electricity, which is growing by the day.
Let's not forget about the fact that conservation of natural resources it is also necessary in order to protect the environment. If we all spend a lot of electricity, the ecological system on the planet will not sustain the load.
Surveys have shown that in Europe people want to preserve nature in its original form. Every individual needs to make their own plan of action. And then the receipts for payment are substantially smaller sum.
IMPORTANT! We should follow their example. Usually there is a simple but very effective methods to significantly save on electricity. If you follow these rules on energy efficiency, we can optimize the cost of utility payments.
Equipment to save energy
If you use special devices, which sell in stores and in outlets in the global network, it is possible to reduce by several times the costs for the supply of electricity.
Modern technologies are developing so rapidly that today there are already devices that allow to obtain substantial energy savings. These wonders of technology created specifically to reduce utility bills. Through these devices it is possible to achieve energy savings in 8-10 times.
ENERGY SAVING LIGHT BULB
This is one of the most effective measures to reduce the cost of electricity. Bulbs of this type are installed instead of standard lamps, which have a common base. We emphasize that the purchase of energy-efficient lamps cost more than buying standard lamps. However, the funds pay off quickly. In just 1-2 months.
The most efficient kind of energy-saving lamps are LED (led) or a fluorescent lamp. They are compared with standard bulbs on average 5-6 times less consume electricity. Also note that these lamps have great luminous efficiency. As a result, they provide significant energy savings
There is a great reason to replace the lamps in all areas. If this is not immediately available, then you need to replace serial. To begin with the room in which you spend the most time.
ENERGY SAVING DEVICE
The purpose of such devices is to save electricity and to convert the reactive energy into active. As a result, reduces the consumption of electric current from the nominal figures by about 40-50 percent.
Energy saving device, if rationally applied, provide an opportunity to avoid the energy losses that occur in the network. They are also called sensors save energy.
Suppliers of such devices promise that the device provides the ability to cut costs. At least 30 percent. However, such a measure can only be achieved when correctly use the device.
To use the device to save power is easy. You just need to connect it to the outlet and the nearest counter. Then the unit covers the whole house.
According to the producers the cost of electricity is reduced:
1. TV, heater, iron, stove, or 45 percent;
2. Refrigerator – 40 percent;
3. Kettle, toaster, coffee maker – 30 percent.
Their purpose is to make enable or disable lighting in any room to program mode. The essence of their work is to program a blackout for a certain time.
Typically, the response time of the device sets the manufacturer. And the average is 15-20 seconds.
IMPORTANT! The breaker trips because there are mounted in a special device and a motion sensor. Note, often these devices are microphones. And they are included by a particular sound. You can also install twilight switches that react as soon as darkness falls.
The sensor reacts as soon as there is the slightest sound or movement, accompanied by fluctuations and noise. When the device is programmed, and it is clearly configured, then the switch can reduce the energy consumption in the room in which it was installed. And it is on average 25-30 percent less!
Devices that save electricity in private house
To save energy in a private house allow additional devices. The most common types we now describe.
People, the acute problem of saving electricity in private house, first of all, think how to insulate the space. In this case, solar panels can become a kind of lifesaver.
Today any of us nothing prevents to collect and use an independent source of electricity that operates on solar batteries. If to call things scientifically, it is a photovoltaic panel.
In the composition of solar panels – a set of solar cells, i.e., photoelectric converters. They are directly involved in the conversion of solar energy into electrical energy. The lion's share of solar cells made from silicon, and it is known to be expensive.
To install these designs, you will have to pay a lot. However, the purchase, as they say, will pay off handsomely. And fast enough. Will pay for such equipment is expensive, but the time will come when you will be well compensated, because you will have free electricity. To all, we emphasize that solar panels are an environmentally friendly source of energy.
In that house, in which use a boiler to heat water or for space heating can achieve energy savings through thermostat. The amount of savings may be different. It depends on what kind of water heater installed in the house.
IMPORTANT! In any case, the thermostat is good because you specify the selection function of temperature. And then at this temperature the instrument will be switched off. To recoup all the money spent on the purchase of the device, usually over a few heating seasons. They have a presentable appearance. They are compact. Can fit into any interior.
How to save electricity in private house
In a private home premises and appliances that consume electrical energy, a lot. More of them than in the apartment. How to achieve savings in this case? It's not as difficult as it seems at first. We can assure you that everyone has the ability to effortlessly make a smaller amount billed for payment.
Next, we present rules that must be followed.
If possible, the care of the land do manually. Tillers for plowing the land, of course, possible to use. But just in case, if suddenly have a lot of work. It is always a good opportunity to save a certain amount of funds.
Heating appliances, like boilers, should be installed close to sources of supply resources. This means that it is better when water heaters are located directly next to the cranes, and boilers close to the source, carrying the flow of gas.
If you need to buy a lantern to illuminate the yard, choose those that are powered by solar panels. They will provide significant savings to the family budget.
In order to save electricity, it is necessary to control the quality of the wiring in a private home. Since the space is wide enough, it does not exclude the leakage of electricity through the wiring that is faulty.
General recommendations for energy savings
Immediately, we emphasize that it is possible to significantly reduce power consumption if properly use household appliances. In a special account are devices such as personal computers, refrigerators, washing machines, electric cookers, which have high energy consumption.
You will be able to save electricity, if you buy equipment with the energy class a, A+, A++ and A+++. Note, however, that the savings could reach on average from 25 to 35 percent of total electricity consumption, but it depends on what model appliance you have chosen, and who is the manufacturer.
Always check whether appliances are in sockets. If they are connected then, but don't work, it leads to unnecessary energy consumption. Remember that even a kettle, if it was left connected to the supply source of electricity, increases the kilowatts that are consumed.
If you are not working on your computer or laptop, turn off the device. Remember that even in sleep mode the device takes power resource. And with high speed. Studies have shown that only a month payment for electricity is lower. Roughly 15 percent.
Washing of linen and clothes do it only when the machine is loaded fully. It is very important to choose the most optimal program. Then you will succeed and linen to wash, and electricity expenses reduced. After all, mode soaking and washing at a high temperature requires a lot of electricity. Especially to heat water.
The refrigerator is one of the most powerful devices in the kitchen among all household appliances. And because it consumes more electricity. But because the refrigerator requires special treatment. You should open it only when necessary. After all, when you open the fridge, he takes for cooling electrical energy of at least 5 percent more.
IMPORTANT! Remember this rule. If you cook food in the microwave, you will always spend less online than if you cook it in the oven appliance.
Before leaving, extinguish the light! Develop the habit and you will start to see savings immediately.
If you insulate the space of the apartment, you can save significant amounts of funds as there will be no need to use any heating appliances.
Correctly use the charger. In this case, you have to be reduced overall energy consumption in the apartment or house. On average, three to five percent. Methods to save electricity with charging devices is simple. After all, is to ensure that it is reasonable to apply them. For example, when the device is fully charged, then you need without wasting time, unplug it from the mains.
Each of these methods, you can adopt. Choose what you liked.
