Saving resources is always relevant and today weWe will tell you how to make your house energy efficient and how you can save a lot on electricity. You can make your house energy-efficient even without large construction works, but the result will not be seen right away, as saving resources requires an integrated approach - here you need to provide for replacement of insulating glass, and Insulation of structures and make changes in the electrical network. Therefore, it is recommended to increase the energy efficiency of the house during repair. What you need to pay special attention to and what to choose - read below. Energy efficient lightingEnergy-efficient lamps Modern energy-saving light sources, unlike incandescent lamps, have significantly less power, while their service life exceeds 10,000 hours, and the warranty is more than one year. During this time they manage to fully pay back and bring tangible benefits to the family budget. Make a choice in favor of fixtures that illuminate a specific part of the room, for example, sconces and floor lamps. There is no special need to cover the entire room if you want to read before going to bed in bed. If possible, install dimmers that allow you to smoothly adjust and maintain the desired level of illumination in the room, which in turn reduces power consumption. When choosing luminaires, pay attention to the shape of the plafonds and estimate in advance how convenient it will be for them to look after them. A clean plafond gives more illumination and reduces inefficient electricity losses. Energy-efficient lighting fixtures "IdeallyIt is recommended to equip such lamps with the entire lighting system in the house. If from the financial point of view it is more comfortable to do it gradually, then it is better to start from the premises where the light burns most often, for example, a corridor and a kitchen. Power consumption due to a forgotten light bulb in the corridor, in this case will be less noticeable for you. "- Boris Semenenko, State Corporation TNS energo. Replace the old electricity meter. Modern electricity meters are qualitatively different from their predecessors and replacement of outdated equipment will not only allow To update the system, but also to receive tangible savings. "Modern meters can be programmed to work in different time zones of the day and at different rates. They are also able to automatically register and store in memory indications and daily load schedules, based on the analysis of which, it is possible to make an informed conclusion about the choice of a variant of the price category (tariffs). You will pay less not only for the work of the dishwasher and washing machine at night, but in general, reduce your electricity costs, which consumes household appliances around the clock, for example, a refrigerator, a boiler, a boiler, a Wi-Fi router, etc. " - Semenenko Boris, GC "TNS energo" Replace the old electricity meter with DownTees - reduce the loss of electricity It is necessary to make a list of electrical equipment and its distribution in advance in order to call the installation of outlets in the reach zone. The number of electrical appliances is constantly growing, so the outlet should be installed with a margin. The use of tees and extension cords increases the resistance in the network and increases the power consumption. Off tees - reduce the loss of electricity inHouse Color of walls also plays an important role Light walls and ceiling are able to return up to 80% of the light. The darker the color of the walls, the smaller the light output. Light walls, light curtains and light furniture reduce lighting costs by 10-15%, which means they help electricity and money to pay for it. White color can help reduce power lossesUse energy-efficient technology of a new generation The technology, produced 20 years ago, consumes more electricity several times, and modern household devices produce with regard to power saving. When choosing a technique, it is better to choose a class of energy consumption of high class, for example, A (+) or A (+++). Such devices are slightly more expensive, but their efficiency will save up to 75% of electricity. No less important issue will be choosing the right place for your new refrigerator: away from the battery, the stove and certainly not under direct sunlight from the window. Energy-efficient appliances Insulate the house Autumn inThe heat, but there is no heating? Common situation! It is at these moments that we get the "voracious" electric heaters. But if at the stage of energy-efficient repair pay attention to the insulation of windows, floors, walls and the front door, you can avoid these problems. First of all, it is worth giving preference to energy-saving double-glazed windows, which will not allow up to 50% of heat to escape. The front door is recommended to make a double. Modern ways to insulate floor and wall mass, just choose the right one for you. Warm the house - reduce the loss of electricityIn addition, during repair it is necessary to replace obsolete radiators, since modern heating devices not only have higher heat output, but also carry an aesthetic load when decorating the interior. Install the heating thermostats, which automatically allow you to maintain the set temperature level and create comfortable conditions in the house. It is important not to make heating appliances furniture and interior items, as they will not work effectively. It would seem, little things, but the reduction in heat losses is guaranteed to 15%. Warm the house - reduce the loss of electricityInstall the ventilation system. Beforehand, consider the future air exchange system in your home. Modern window or wall ventilators, as well as recuperative ventilation systems, work much more efficiently than a constantly open window and allow to prevent heat loss Proper ventilation By applying these tips you do notOnly significantly reduce the cost of electricity, but make it cozy and warm, and how to make your house read in our other articles.
