How to reduce electricity consumption if you are a millennial?

Check the electrical installation

Replace the bulbs with LED technology

Paint the walls and ceilings light colors

Unplug unused electrical devices

Take advantage of natural lighting

Schedule the use of the heater, air conditioner or fan

Turn off the lights without using

Use only gas stove

Buy appliances with A +++ label

Use regulators to connect electrical appliances

Check the electrical installation

The first tip to reduce electricity consumption is to check the electrical installation of the house, it will serve to detect electrical leaks, especially if the property was built more than 10 years ago. Therefore, we advise you to do the following:

Turn off all lights and unplug electrical appliances.

Check that the meter disk or counter stops for snap.

If the disk or counter keeps running then you have an electrical leak. In the event of an electrical leak, it is essential to request the help of a technician to check and fix the installation. Avoid increasing energy due to lack of maintenance!

Replace the bulbs with LED technology

If you are looking to have a sustainable home and save electricity at home, then you will have to replace all the warm bulbs with energy-efficient LED technology.

LED bulbs consume 22% less than classic bulbs and 80% less than incandescent bulbs. With these bulbs you will be saving up to 90% of the electricity bill.

Another advantage of LED bulbs is that they last an average of 10 years and although their price is higher they will help you save money in the long term, likewise, they do not emit heat and allow the light to be directed to specific areas.

Paint the walls and ceilings light colors

Paint the walls and ceilings in light or neutral tones both inside and outside, and forget about using warm colors as these cause the temperature increase.

In addition, light tones allow better use of natural and artificial light inside the house. In the case of the exterior they reflect the sunlight and help the house to heat up less.

You will have better lighting in the home if you use the right range of colors such as almond white or sand beige.

Unplug unused electrical devices

Another very simple way to save electricity at home if you are a millennial is to disconnect electronic devices when they are not used and avoid keeping the computer on or connected. Most devices consume power, even if they are turned off or in stand-by .

Having connected chargers, video game consoles, television screens and microwaves represent up to 13% of electrical energy consumption, according to figures from the Federal Consumer Protection Agency (PROFECO).

We advise you to buy devices that are charged with solar energy such as lamps, wireless keyboards and portable batteries.

Also consider that the refrigerator cannot be disconnected, however, you can avoid opening and closing the door all the time, without realizing it you will be optimizing its use.

Take advantage of natural lighting

Opening the curtains and windows during the day will help reduce light consumption, use it to illuminate the spaces and keep the property warm or cold.

According to information from the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE), rooms with skylights, windows or domes do not need much light in temperate climates and in the case of tropical climates, consider opening the windows during the morning or night , so as not to generate the accumulation of heat.

Schedule the use of the heater, air conditioner or fan

The change of temperatures is a very important situation in the home when it is winter or summer. For this reason, it is advisable to maintain a balanced temperature and not abuse the heater, air conditioning or fan.

Maintenance is essential to save electricity at home, you should clean the filters periodically, the vents or blades and check the thermostat, try to keep it at 25 ° C in summer and 18 ° C in winter.

You can also save light if you plant endemic trees in strategic points of the house, they will serve to divert air currents in winter and generate more shade in summer.

If it falls into your budget, consider changing the air conditioning or fan for energy savers and that have a green label.

Finally, control the use of the heater both in the shower, kitchen or to wash clothes, only use it in low temperature season.

Turn off the lights without using

This is a way to reduce the consumption of light that will not cost you a single peso, you will only need to be very constant to develop the habit. Therefore, you must turn off the lights when they are not used.

Use only gas stove

The use of a gas stove allows the saving of electrical energy in the home up to 70%. Also, they are more useful for cooking. Usually electric stoves or induction grills need other types of pans and pots so that they can heat up faster.

Buy appliances with A +++ label

Appliances such as a microwave oven, refrigerator, washer and dryer, blender, among others, are the ones that use the most electrical energy in the home.

For this reason, it is essential that they be replaced by appliances with the A +++ label, check that they are certified as savers and have the seal issued by the National Commission for the Efficient Use of Energy (CONUEE). You will be consuming up to 50% less energy.

If within your budget you cannot cover this expense, choose to give preventive and corrective maintenance to household appliances, the more accumulated failures they have, the more they consume electricity.

Use regulators to connect electrical appliances

Using voltage regulators and multi-contacts will not only serve to save electrical energy in the home but also to protect the devices from any electrical shock.

The regulator and multicontact have an on / off switch. Due to this, when you decide to turn it off, the flow of energy in electrical appliances will be avoided and the consumption of light will be reduced.

 

Implement these simple tips to save electricity at home if you are a millennial and avoid the unbridled consumption of light.
