How not to waste energy

Energy conservation is a deliberate act of preserving and saving energy from undue waste. Having solar installed in your home is a step in energy conservation. However, this does not ultimately mean that you would be saving energy just by installing solar alone. It goes beyond to say that you have to take necessary steps in ensuring that you do not waste energy unduly. Below are some of the few things to note on how not to waste energy.

Leaving electrical appliances on

This is perhaps the most common way of wasting energy. You would be incurring more bills by leaving your appliances on especially when making use of non-renewable energy. Most of the time, leaving appliances on is caused by laziness. Extra caution needs to be taken in ensuring appliances are turned off. Electronics not in use should be put off at all times until when needed.

Make use of LED bulbs

LED bulbs are created to conserve energy and are climate-friendly. The oldstyle incandescent bulbs have been discovered to consume more energy compared to LED bulbs. This can as well increase you total electricity bills. More so, the LED bulbs are perfect with solar, especially when fixed in a home. The low energy consumption rate of the LED bulbs helps in leveraging the total power output of your solar energy.

Careless attitude of keeping fridge open

The habit of leaving the fridge open when deciding what to take from it is an energy waster. This habit has an adverse effect on the energy we consume. Defrosting the fridge regularly can help in saving energy. In addition, if you put warm foods into the fridge, it will use more energy to cool it.

Doing your laundry and dishwashing half-full 

Laundry and dishwashing are systematically done when there are things to wash or clean up. We could, however, conserve energy if we rather wash in bulk. What this means is that you will be making use of more heat and water when washing half loads.

Allowing the heating system (Thermostat) work all day

This basically applies for colder climate or region, where they experience very cold weather conditions like winter. Having a thermostat is to help balance the temperature of the house. Sadly though, so many people fail to turn it off when out of the house. This incurs more expenses on your electricity bills. It is a total waste of energy leaving this kind of appliance on when not in use.
