It goes without saying that in the time we are we need to save. Since most of us can’t earn more, we will have to spend less to live or at worst to survive. That is why we have prepared you 11 tricks on how to save on electricity and keep your electricity bill as low as possible.
Use light bulbs. These bulbs are more expensive than ordinary ones, but this small investment will pay off in the long run with a lower electricity bill. The price of these bulbs is around 5 euros, but their lifespan is longer than conventional light bulbs. When you go to buy them, look at the energy label and choose the ones with the highest classification.
Turn off the red light on the TV and other electronic devices. When we turn off the TV from the remote control or any other device in which the red light remains on, we do not turn it off, but leave it in “standby mode”, which the device in question continues to consume energy. It is a good idea to plug all devices into the same switch. TV, stereo, DVD, video game console, etc. When we go to sleep, get out of the house or we won’t use them, we turn off all the devices, and then we press the button on the power strip, completely disconnecting them.
Turn off the kitchen 5 minutes before the end of cooking. In electric stoves such as vitroceramics, we can turn them off 5 minutes before the food is ready and use the remaining heat to end up consuming less energy.
Washing machines full and cold water. It’s a simple gesture, but it will also reduce your electricity bill at the end of the month.
Use a microwave instead of an oven. If we have a microwave with a grill, we can put it sideways in the oven, unless necessary, and prepare food in the microwave. A microwave oven uses 50% less energy than an oven.
Use pressure cookers. They cook food much faster, saving time and of course energy.
Beware of computers. If we’re on a computer and we’re going to do any other task but we’re not done with the computer, the normal thing is to leave it as it is until the screen jump jumps. This makes him still consume the same energy. Instead of using a screen saver, it is better to set your computer to power save mode. Therefore, the session will be turned off or suspended when we are not using it.
Iron large amounts of clothing. There are times when we need a shirt or pants and find that they are not ironed, and we attach an iron to fix one garment. Avoid this as much as possible and iron in large quantities, all clothes at once and avoid turning the iron on and off as much as possible.
Remove the bulb from the refrigerator. This solution may seem a bit drastic, but on second thought, when we open the fridge in the morning, most kitchens have enough light to see what’s inside. And when we open the fridge at night, the kitchen light also allows us to clearly see what’s inside. Therefore, if possible, removing the bulb from the refrigerator will allow us to save light.
Keep the refrigerator in perfect condition. A refrigerator is a device that uses more light in the house due to its continuous use. If it’s frosty, if we have the back of the fridge, it will consume even more light. For this reason, periodic inspection and good maintenance will save you less energy.
Contract less electricity with the electricity company to reduce your electricity bill. Reducing contracted power can help us save up to € 300 per year. This is because consumers usually pay a fee for power that we do not consume in most cases.
