Automation has made our lives easier, and appliances have now become a necessity. But what comes with these electrical appliances is the hefty electricity bill. Here are a few things you can do to save electricity.

  • With simple devices you need to follows these steps. If you have a dishwasher at home, the simple steps you need to follow are using cold water instead of hot water for the washing process. The detergents should also be used in the similar manner. The water levels also need to be set accordingly at a lower level. This will be beneficial in two ways as you would be saving both water and energy in the bargain. Also the detergent needs to be added in a lesser quantity so that the water is not hardened, and hence lesser energy is required in one wash. Also the appliance should not be overloaded with utensils as it would require more energy then.
  • If you have a refrigerator at home, then follow these simple steps to avoid energy losses. Do not open the refrigerator again and again to see what is there inside. Another important thing to remember is that all food items should be cooled to a proper room temperature before being placed in the refrigerator. Also, some amount of space should be left in front of the refrigerator/ freezer so that air is allowed to pass through it and energy is saved Also you should change your refrigerator every 7 years or so as new refrigerators are more efficient than the older ones.
  • Light bulbs should also be chosen For instance, CFLs use 75% lesser energy as compared to the normal incandescent ones.
  • If you have stoves or ovens at home, cut vegetables in smaller pieces as they will consume lesser energy that way and will even cook faster this way. Clean the reflector pans when the pot boils over and the contents start to spill. More heat is reflected when they shine. They will reflect more heat when they shine. Just check for the flame on your oven or the gas stove. If they are yellow, then the energy is being wasted and the burners need to be adjusted. Each utensil should be covered with a lid before placing it on the burner so that less energy is consumed while Also, using glass or ceramic utensils will lead to the saving of energy. Electric frying pans are also good substitutes for the same.
  • You can also tumble dry clothes instead of using a clothes dryer to dry them so that energy is saved. Install your air conditioner in the shade instead of doing so in the sunlight in order to save energy from wasting upon.  Geysers should be turned off when not in use, and the temperatures should be set at a normal temperature instead of a very high one so that the heating takes lesser energy.
  • Voltage Fluctuations is another factor which results in electricity wastage, thus increasing your electricity bills. These fluctuations might be caused due to some loose points and connections of wires or other electrical fittings. It might not get into a layman’s notice, only professional electrician would be able to locate any such points.
