Electricity is a daily and unavoidable expense in everywhere.But we can reduce electricity bill with use some following techniques.
- Right lights:- You might not see a difference in the way they light up the room but the right choice of bulbs shows on your electricity bill. Compact fluorescent ones are four times more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs but provide the same lighting.Fluorescent bulbs may be more expensive initially, but they are definitely worth the investment. A single standard incandescent lightbulb can cost the same to operate as six to 10 fluorescent bulbs and the fluorescents last about 10 times longer
- A/Cs help us survive the scorching summer months but they are also big time electricity suckers. The cooler it gets, the more power is being consumed. So instead of shock frosting your home at 18 degrees settle for a very comfortable 24 degrees and save some power.
- Stock up on pretty potted plants and shrubs or plant some trees in front of your house if possible and position them in such a way that they block the sun from shining straight on your A/C. A unit operating in the shade needs up to 10 percent less electricity than one exposed to sun. Keep the greenery trimmed around your air conditioners for more efficient air flow. Similarly, if you have a central air conditioner, sweep away any leaves or other debris that accumulated near it over the winter.
Energy Star:-Look for the Energy Star label when buying appliances. It tells you that the product meets strict standards for energy efficiency And Try to choose “5 star” it may be costly at first time but reduce bill regularly.
