Most efficient to the least efficient appliance:
Refrigerators, dishwashers, washing machines, lamps all have a label that ranges from ‘A’ for the most efficient appliance to ‘G’ for the least efficient. The lower ranks are usually cheaper, but a higher operating cost offsets this. Moreover, the A-class devices often last much longer than others: double the profit.
Special cooking pots:
If you opt for electric cooking, a stove with induction hobs is the most economical. Be careful because you need unique cooking pots for this. You can perform a simple test to notice if your cooking pots are suitable. If you take a magnet and it sticks to your cooking pot, it is ideal for an induction stove. It will not stick. They are not suitable. In second place come ceramic plates with halogen, followed by ceramic plates with resistors. A classic electric stove is the least economical of all.
Conventional ovens give off static radiant heat. The location of the court is, therefore, significant. It is much less critical in a convection oven because the hot air spreads in the range through a hot air fan. It results in lower energy consumption. By the way, cooking in a microwave is even more efficient.
Using of energy-saving lamps and LCD screens:
Economical lighting is best done with fluorescent lighting. The cool, flickering lights we used to know are long gone. There is also the energy-saving lamp within the same “family,” which is no more than a folded fluorescent tube that fits into a traditional screw fitting. LED lighting is ideal as orientation lighting for stairs or a garden path.
Today’s flat screens have a reasonably large screen area. It is nice to look at, but unfortunately, it is less attractive regarding energy consumption. For example, a device with an image diameter of 26″ consumes only half of a device with an image diameter of 42″. According to some sources, plasma TVs consume more than LCD screens, although the difference is minimal
Laptops are more economical than desktop models. It is optimistic that the latter are increasingly using LCD screens. Such an LCD screen consumption is lower than the consumption of a classic CRT monitor.
Some more tips for saving electricity:
Use pans with a flat, non-deformable bottom. Choose a pan or pot that fits nicely on the hob; Cook as much as possible with the lid on the pot. Use the residual heat from hobs and ovens. Only switch on the dishwasher when it is full. Place refrigerators, freezers, or freezers in a cool place. Defrost the freezer now and then; a layer of frost leads to more consumption. The ideal temperature is five °C for the refrigerator and -18°C for the freezer.
Try to fill the drum. Select a washing program at low temperatures. Ensure proper maintenance of the devices. Dry the laundry on a rack or the washing line as much as possible. Use a reflective ironing cover. As time passes, we are ignorant of our surroundings until they become a problem for us. The same goes for electricity; we are not literally paying attention to our household electricity, or else we would not be in the problems like high electricity bills, etc.
Do not leave the TV or the hi-fi system on standby, but switch it off completely. A mobile phone charger in the socket always consumes power, even without a mobile phone. Lower the blinds or shutters instead of using the air conditioner. Replace lamps that you regularly dim with lamps with lower power. If necessary, use a motion detector for the lighting. Take advantage of the available sunlight to illuminate and heat the living room.
