Energy Conservation: Seven Methods For Energy Conservation

Geschreven op 26-10-2021 - Erik van Erne. Geplaatst in Energie en Besparing Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

Many strategies exist for reducing your household’s energy consumption, from simple changes in behavior to energy-saving home improvements.

Below are seven methods which can be used for conservation of energy.

Modify your daily behaviors: Conserving energy can be as simple as turning off lights and appliances when not in use. Additionally, you can conserve energy by performing household tasks manually, such as hanging your clothes to dry rather than putting them in the dryer or washing dishes by hand. Sometimes you can conserve energy by turning of you pc for certain time or if you are a game lover then you can spent some time in outing instead of playing games on casino777. This will improve your health as well as conserve energy.

Change out your light bulbsIncandescent light bulbs consume excessive energy and must be replaced more frequently than their energy-efficient counterparts. Halogen incandescent bulbs, compact fluorescent lights (CFLs), and light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs consume between 25% and 80% less energy and last between 3 and 25 times longer than standard bulbs. Although energy-efficient bulbs are initially more expensive, their efficient energy use and longer lifespan result in long-term savings.

Make use of intelligent power strips: “Phantom loads,” or the electricity consumed by electronics when they are turned off or in standby mode, account for a significant portion of energy consumption. Indeed, it is estimated that 75% of the energy used to power household electronics is consumed when they are turned off, which can add up to $200 to your annual energy bill. Smart power strips, also known as advanced power strips, eliminate phantom loads by powering down electronics when not in use. Smart power strips can be programmed to turn off at a preset time, after a period of inactivity, via remote switches, or in response to the status of a “master” device.

Add a programmable thermostat to your home: By installing a programmable thermostat, you can eliminate inefficient heating and cooling without upgrading your HVAC system. A programmable thermostat can save you an average of $180 per year. Programmable thermostats are available in a variety of models and can be customized to fit your weekly schedule. Additionally, programmable thermostats may include indicators for when to replace air filters or diagnose HVAC system problems, which can help improve your heating and cooling system’s efficiency.

Make use of energy-efficient appliances: On average, appliances account for roughly 13% of total household energy consumption. When shopping for an appliance, two numbers should be considered: the initial purchase price and the annual operating cost. While energy-efficient appliances may have a higher initial cost, their operating costs are frequently 9-25 percent lower than conventional models. When shopping for an energy-efficient appliance, look for the ENERGY STAR label, a federal guarantee that the appliance will consume less energy while in use and standby mode than standard models. Energy savings vary by appliance.

Lower your water heating costs: Water heating accounts for a significant portion of your total energy consumption. Apart from purchasing an energy-efficient water heater, there are three ways to reduce your water heating expenses: Simply use less hot water; Lower your water heater’s thermostat; Insulate your water heater. If you’re considering replacing your water heater with a more efficient model, two factors should be considered: the type of water heater that meets your needs and the type of fuel it will use. For example, while tankless water heaters are energy-efficient, they are not good for large families due to their inability to handle concurrent hot water uses. Efficient water heaters can save up to 300 percent more energy than conventional storage water heaters.

Replace windows with energy-efficient models: Windows are a significant source of energy loss, accounting for between 10% and 25% of your total heating bill. Replace single-pane windows with double-pane products to prevent heat loss through your windows. Gas-filled windows with “low-e” coatings can significantly reduce heating costs in homes located in colder climates. Additionally, interior or exterior storm windows can cut heat loss by 10% to 20%. Consider storm windows in particular if your region is prone to extreme weather events.
