Green Corner : Save Energy

Save Energy, Reduce Your Electricity Bill

Hello everyone, it’s Friday again and its Green Corner section. Today we will talk about saving the energy. The more you save or reduce your electric usage, the more money you can save. Not only reducing the bill but, we also can help the world save power for its future generations. Let’s check it out...

How to Reduce Your Electricity Bill :

If you have been bogged by the enormous electricity bills you have been getting, it is time to take some concrete steps. You can reduce your electricity bills by following very simple steps. 

This article will list some simple, easy-to-do things to reduce your electricity bill.

Limited use 

Start with the room you are sitting in. If you were to take a call in another room or join your family at the dining table, would you just step out of your room without any concern for the electrical appliances in the room? If you would, stop right there, and look around. Switch off all the appliances even if you would be back in five minutes. Yes, even that will help. Every drop of water constitutes to the ocean. 

Another thing to take care of here is what you perceive as an electronic appliance. Would you switch off the television set, turn off the fan, but not the light bulb? Yes, you need light, but not now when you are leaving the room. Taking care of these small things will go a long way in reducing the dreaded huge electricity bills.

Smart investments

Make some smart power investments by replacing your incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. These bulbs are a great power-saving investment.

Buy the Power Save gadget. The gadget helps monitor the power supply to your house and uses the minimum that is needed.

Home appliance usage 

Most of us complain that the electricity bill touches the sky because of the number of electrical appliances they have at home. However, the electricity bill is not directly proportional to the number of gadgets you use but the way you use them. Let’s see how you can avoid the typical power-wasters. 

• Use the washing machine only when there is a full load of clothes. 

• Keep the geyser on for the minimal amount of time.

• Keep the air-conditioner at the minimum low or high temperature, just enough to keep you off the heat or the cold outside.

• Switch off the computer monitor even when you take a one-minute break. It takes just a second to switch on the monitor again!
