National Cut Your Energy Costs Day brings up the most important issue in the world, which is often overlooked. We depend on electricity! Houses keep warm in winter and cool in summer, which is great… But there is a problem – bills that have to be paid. Did you know that you can pay less if you learn how to save?
The National Day was created by CEEA, the Canadian Energy Reduction Alliance. One day, the organizers realized that the date was necessary to convey important information to people and help them cope with huge bills. Follow the advice – a great start!
A visual assessment of the house will help in this situation: inspect each room and consider whether energy-saving systems are installed everywhere. You also need to pay attention to your behavior – we leave the house and leave the lights or electrical appliances on … Why? Catch yourself the next time you’re being careless.
Did you know that:
- energy consumption can be reduced by almost 55 times if lighting with motion sensors is installed in an apartment building;
- a freezer covered with ice increases energy consumption by 20%;
- a washing machine that is not fully loaded consumes 15% more electricity;
- The largest source of energy is the sun. It sends 1000 times more energy to Earth than humanity uses;
- cookware with soot increases energy (or gas) consumption by 50%.
