Energy conservation has become the hot topic in recent years. For our own good we should take good care about energy conservation. Not only will we be beneficiary economically, proper use of energy will reduce the pressure on environment also. It’s time to move forward with proper use of environmental resources. The simple steps to save energy and money in households.

Unplug your chargers, seldom used appliances, televisions, home theatre equipments, extra refrigerators when they are not in use. Though they can be switched off, but they still consume energy and together they use energy equivalent to a 100 watt light bulb running continuously.

Turn off the lighting when not in use. Anyone can easily take advantage of daylight by using light colored, loose wave curtains on windows. Wall can be decorated with light colors to reflect daylight. Instead of lighting the whole room, properly use it where needed. Use energy saving appliances, they are usually four times energy effective than traditional.

For energy it’s best to put your computer on sleep mode during inactivity. Every operating system features sleep mode, activate it from your power management system. For 30 minutes or more inactive period set your computer to ‘Hibernate’. The programs will be automatically shut down but you don’t have to start it from the beginning, it will automatically reload everything.

Use smart and wise thinking to control the temperature. In heating seasons, open the shades and blinds on sunny day and at night close them to reduce heat lost. Set your temperature lower which will help to save energy effectively. Close the blinds and shades when air-conditioner is in use so you don’t have to keep it alive whole day.

Most of all use your appliances effectively and wisely. A little concern from every household can be a great contribution in energy conservation and save tons of energy we simply waste for our incognizance.
