Saving at home is possible. EDP Energía offers a series of simple tips to reduce energy consumption in the home, achieve efficient energy consumption and protect the environment. An X-ray of energy consumption in the home shows that approximately 46% comes from heating, 20% from hot water, 16% comes from appliances, 10% from kitchen, 7% of the lighting and 1% of the air conditioning.
Gestures as simple as turning off the heating at night taking advantage of the heat accumulated during the day; use USB rechargeable batteries, charge them on the PC and give them the same use as normal batteries; or check gas appliances periodically, help reduce our energy consumption.
Also, using office equipment with Energy Star labels, with the ability to go to a rest state when a certain time elapses without the equipment having been used, can Help a more responsible energy consumption.
In this state of rest (low energy) the energy consumption is at most 15% of normal consumption. It is very important to completely turn off the appliances once they have stopped use. In the case of computers, in the absence of an absence, it is enough to turn off the monitor.
CAR-E AND HEATING DEVICE
In addition, whoever is going to acquire a single-family home, can request the installation of the CAR-e device for the recharging of electric vehicles. Also, it is possible to transform energy of the sun in electricity through the use of solar panels that can be placed on rooftops or gardens. In fact, solar thermal energy is ideal for the production of hot water.
There are some practical tips to ensure that the use of heating does not trigger the electricity bill. For example, reducing the position of the thermostat to 15 degrees when absent from the housing.
In this sense it is advisable to install thermostats and timers in homes to control the heating to stay at an adequate temperature. Thermostatic valves in radiators And programmable thermostats are easy to install and save up to 13% energy.
Also ventilating a house has its trick. To air a room and renew the air it is enough to open the windows ten minutes in winter. It is essential to always take advantage of the heat of the sun and lower the blinds and close curtains to conserve the heat inside the rooms, as soon as the sun goes down.
It is also advisable to close the keys of the radiators in the rooms that are not used and keep the doors closed. It is important to check the condition of the heaters and purge them Radiators should not be covered periodically or objects placed next to them that prevent the correct diffusion of hot air.
In the points of light that are on more than an hour a day, ideal low consumption lamps or LEDs or fluorescent tubes. Conventional bulbs only convert 15% of the the electricity they consume. The rest is heat.
