Energy Efficiency, Saving Hints and Tips

Created on 16 September 2011. Posted in Energy Saving Tips

... le you to conserve energy and save money by cutting the amount of energy you waste.

Hot water

Hot water

Setting the thermostat to 60°C / 140° F is fine for bathing and washing should be satisfactory for most people. This could save up to £10 a year. Always put the plug into your sink or basin. Leaving hot water taps running with no plug is like flushing money down the plughole.

Lighting

Lighting

In most homes lighting accounts for 10 – 15% of the electricity bill. Swap your inefficient traditional light bulbs for energy efficient bulbs instead. These will reduce your bills because they only use a fraction of the energy needed to operate a traditional bulb These bulbs cost less to run, but also last longer than normal bulbs, meaning you don’t have to change them as often which helps the environment. Always turn lights off when you leave a room even if it is for only a few minutes, you should also turn off your fluorescent lamps if the space is not going to be occupied for more than a few minutes (3-5 minutes is a good rule of thumb). Modern lamps do draw a higher level of current during start up, but it only lasts for a fraction of a second, which is negligible compared to normal current requirements of the lamps.

Fridges

Fridges

Do not leave the door open for longer than necessary, as the more cold air that escapes the harder the fridge has to work to maintain the chosen temperature. Avoid putting warm or hot food straight into the fridge, allow it to cool first. Defrost your fridge regularly to keep it running efficiently and cheaply. If it shows a tendency to frost up quickly then the door seal may be faulty. If you must put your fridge next to your cooker or boiler, leave as big a gap as possible between them.

Televisions, Videos, stereos, computers and cordless phones

Televisions, Videos, stereos, computers and cordless phones

In order to cut down on wasted energy, avoid leaving appliances on standby and remember not to leave them on charge unnecessarily. Always check the operation manual to make sure that this won’t reset the appliances memory.

Washing machines and tumble dryers

Washing machines and tumble dryers

Whenever possible, wash a full load or use a half-load or economy program if your machine has one. User a lower temperature program. 40° or even 30° is generally OK for most of the wash cycles. Don’t put dripping wet clothes into the tumble dryer, wring them or spin dry them first. They will dry much faster and save you money.

Dishwashers

Dishwashers

Use the lowest temperature program available and ensure you wash a full load.

Immersion heater

Immersion heater

Leaving the immersion heater on all day can prove very expensive. Use a timer or switch the heater on when necessary.

Kettles and Coffee Makers

Kettles and Coffee Makers

Use the minimum amount of water necessary for a cuppa, but ensure that the element is covered. This will use the optimum amount of energy and ensures you are not re-heating the same water

Oil heaters & Electric Heaters

Oil heaters & Electric Heaters

These use very large amounts of energy, so use them only when they are needed.

Boilers

Boilers

If you decide to install a new boiler seriously consider fitting a new energy efficient boiler or a condensing boiler. These are very efficient and could save you around a third of your heating bills. This saving will be increased if you also upgrade to modern controls.
