Energy And Electricity Saving Tips

Prepare Yourself

Modern life allows people to live in a comfortable atmosphere and very practical. This is all made possible by the existence of electrical energy. With various types of electrical equipment, electrical energy can be converted into rotary energy, heat, light, and audio-video signals, as needed. The process of change in electrical energy to a ready-made electricity in homes or in offices is cost money. The amount of costs that must be provided depends on the amount of electricity used, or often referred to as the number of KWh used.

Electrical Energy Saving Tips at Home

Listening is not the same as seeing, and seeing not the same as doing. Anything as beautiful teachings would be useless if not done. Love your electricity, start by using it with saving by running the following tips.

The principles that need attention and cultivate the attitude of electrical energy saving in households, among others: Connect the power of electricity as needed. Households small example, with enough power 450 VA or 900 VA, households are enough to power 900 VA to 1300 VA. Choosing the right appliances and as needed. Shape the behavior of members of the household in saving electricity, such as: Turning the power tools on only when necessary. Using power tools in turn. Using electric power to supplement household income (productive). Household electrical appliances in general are designed for efficient electricity usage, but in practice still found in a waste of electrical energy. This can occur because of the use of equipment in a manner that is less precise.

The use of measures of Household Electrical Appliances Conserve Energy Use in Electricity


  1. Put out the lights if the room is not used.
  2. Put out the lights in the daytime.
  3. Reduce excessive electric lighting.
  4. Position your furniture so as not to block the light in the room.
  5. Turning the lights pages / park when the day really began to get dark.
  6. Turn off the lights pages / park when the days are getting light again.
  1. Choosing energy-efficient air conditioning and power according to the size of the room.
  2. Use the appropriate AC capacity and efficiency.
  3. Use a timer (timer) for AC operation only when needed.
  4. Control the temperature with a thermostat.
  5. Use the cover on the space exposed to direct sunlight.
  6. Keep doors, windows and air vents are always closed for quite low humidity.
  7. Avoid putting anything that blocks air circulation.
  8. Clean the air filter, condenser coil and fins conditioned regularly.
  9. Adjust the room temperature sufficiently, do not set the AC too cold.
  10. AC Placing far as possible from direct sunlight, so that the cooling effect is not reduced.
  11. Replace coolant used (Freon) with power-saving cooling materials (hydrocarbon refrigerant), which can reduce power to 30% of AC.
  12. Turn off the AC when the room is empty in a relatively longer period.

  1. Use water storage tanks (storing water in the top position).
  2. Use water floats at the shelter.
  3. Use water sparingly and prevent water leaks in faucets and pipes.
  4. It often happens that the pump worked continuously, but not for consumption. The reason is as follows:
         * Relay press (pressure switch) is not working.
         * Installation of water pipes in the building there is a leak.
         * Faucet water does not shut down completely or is damaged.

  1. Using a washing machine in accordance with capacity.
  2. Excess capacity resulting in slowing the velocity of the engine and increase the electricity consumption burden.
  3. Capacity is less cause inefficient, because the machine uses the same energy.
  4. Use the dryer only on a cloudy / rainy. When the weather is sunny, you should take advantage of sunlight.

  1. Choosing a refrigerator with the size / capacity as appropriate.
  2. When I close the refrigerator door should always be tightly closed.
  3. The contents of the refrigerator should be in accordance with the capacity (not too crowded).
  4. Place the refrigerator away from heat sources (stove, direct sunlight).
  5. Place your refrigerator min. 15 cm from the wall, for good air circulation to the condenser.
  6. Avoid placing food / drink that is too hot.
  7. Set the refrigerator temperature as needed. Because the lower the temperature, the more electrical energy is used.
  8. Replace the rubber insulation on the door / cabinet immediately if damaged.
  9. Clean the condenser (located behind the refrigerator) regularly from dust and dirt, for heat release process went well.
  10. Turning off the fridge when not in use for a long time.

  1. Adjust the heat level is adjusted to use with an iron material (silk, woolen, polyster, cotton and so on).
  2. Clean the bottom side of the iron on a regular basis for delivery of iron to heat lasted well
  3. Iron at the same time many do only one or two pieces of clothing.
  4. Will switch off the iron if left long enough.

  1. Reduce electricity consumption during peak load in the hours 18:00 to 22:00
  2. Use Energy Efficient Electrical Appliances
  3. Turn off the magic-jar or a magic-com where rice has remained a bit because of electricity to warm the rice becomes futile.
  4. Turn off the television, radio, tape recorder, and audio visual equipment other, if not watched or listened to.
  5. Unplug electrical appliances when not in use equipment.
  6. If the electrical equipment using the remote system is not in use, do not turn off by remote control (on stand by.) But the turn of the on-off or disconnect the plug.
  7. Turn on the water heater 20 minutes before hot water is used
  8. Periodically clean the glass window. Glass window cleaner will continue more light.
  9. Periodically clean the bulb / tube lights with reflector so clean so as not to reduce the light.
