Ways to save electricity
Nowadays many people have electricity, but they don’t know how to use it wisely. There is many way to save electricity. We must use electricity wisely. 1. Way is only use electricity when needed. 2. Replace all of your inefficient incandescent light bulbs with energy efficient CFL bulbs. Replace halogen spotlights with much more efficient and longer lasting LED Spotlight. 3. Hang your clothes out to dry rather than using an electric tumble dryer. Ideally use a spin dryer before using the tumble dryer. 4. Cook many items at the same time when your electric oven is hot. 5. Use a microwave to reheat food or to cook small portions. Although a microwave uses a lot of power, it does so over a very short time and so saves energy overall. 6. Vacuum clean the condenser coils at the back or underneath your fridge freezer. Accumulated dust reduces their efficiency by up to 25% adding that cost to your electricity bill. 7. Fold clothes straight out of the tumble drier while they are still warm to save on ironing. 8. Do not put uncovered liquids into the fridge. Their evaporation will make the fridge have to work harder. 9. Don't keep opening the oven door. Every time you do so, your oven loses 20°C of heat so it has to work again. 10. Turn down the temperature on your washing machine. Heating the water uses the majority of the electricity, so by doing a warm wash instead of a hot wash 11. in the summer use ceiling fans on a fast setting instead of air conditioning to keep cool. In the winter, running the fans slowly will push warm air collected at ceiling height down to where you want it. (If the slowest setting on your fan is too strong, reverse the direction of the fan in the winter so that the accumulated warm air is blown up against the ceiling and bounces more gently down around the walls and into the living space. I hope people will use my tip; it will save you a lot of electricity.
