Saving resources is always relevant and today wewe will tell you about how to make your house energy efficient and how you can significantly save on electricity You can make your house energy efficient even without major construction work, but the result will not be seen immediately, since saving resources requires an integrated approach - here you need to provide for the replacement of double-glazed windows, and make heat insulation of structures and make changes to the electrical network. Therefore, it is recommended to improve the energy efficiency of the home when renovating. What you need to pay special attention to and what to choose - read below. energy efficient luminaires Chooseenergy-efficient lamps Modern energy-saving light sources, unlike incandescent lamps, have a significantly lower 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 off and bring tangible benefits to the family budget. Opt for luminaires that light up a specific part of the room, such as wall lamps and floor lamps. There is no particular need to light up the entire room if you want to read before bed in bed. If possible, install dimmers that allow you to smoothly regulate and maintain the required level of illumination in the room, which in turn reduces energy consumption. When choosing lamps, pay attention to the shape of the shades and evaluate in advance how convenient it will be for you to care for them. A clear shade provides more illumination and reduces inefficient energy losses. energy efficient luminaires “Ideallyit is recommended to equip the entire lighting system in the house with such lamps. If, from a financial point of view, it will be more comfortable to do this gradually, then it is better to start with rooms where the light is on most often, for example, a corridor and a kitchen. Electricity consumption due to a forgotten light bulb in the corridor, in this case, will be less noticeable for you. " - Boris Semenenko, TNS energo Group of Companies Replace the old electricity meter Modern electricity meters are qualitatively different from their predecessors and replacement of outdated equipment will not only update the system, but also get tangible savings. “Modern meters can be programmed to operate in different time zones and at different rates. They are also capable of automatically registering and storing readings and daily load schedules in memory, based on the analysis of which, a reasonable conclusion can be drawn about the choice of the price category option (tariffs). You will pay less not only for the operation of the dishwasher and washing machine at night, but also generally reduce your electricity costs, which are consumed around the clock by household appliances, for example, a refrigerator, boiler, boiler, Wi-Fi router, etc. " - Boris Semenenko, TNS energo Group of Companies replace the old electricity meter Down withtees - we reduce electricity losses It is necessary to draw up a list of electrical equipment and its location in advance, so that the installation of sockets can be carried out within reach. The number of electrical appliances is constantly growing, so the sockets need to be installed with a margin. The use of tees and extension cords increases the resistance in the network and increases energy consumption. down with tees - we reduce electricity losses inhome Wall color also plays an important role Light walls and ceilings are able to return up to 80% of the light. The darker the color of the walls, the less light output will be. 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 will help reduce energy lossesUse energy-efficient appliances of a new generation. Appliances produced 20 years ago consume several times more electricity, and modern household appliances are produced taking into account electricity savings. When choosing equipment, it is better to choose a high-class energy class, for example, A (+) or A (+++). Such devices are slightly more expensive, but their efficiency will save up to 75% of electricity. An equally important issue will be choosing the right place for your new refrigerator: away from the radiator, the stove, and certainly not in direct sunlight from the window. energy efficient appliances Insulate the house Autumn inin full swing, but there is still no heating? Common situation! It is at these moments that we get our "gluttonous" electric heaters. But if you pay attention to the insulation of windows, floors, walls and the front door at the stage of energy-efficient repairs, you can avoid these problems. First of all, it is worth giving preference to energy-saving double-glazed windows, which will not let up to 50% of the heat evaporate. It is recommended to make a double front door. There are a lot of modern ways to insulate floors and walls, just choose the one that suits 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%. insulate the house - reduce energy lossesInstall a ventilation system Consider in advance 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 prevent heat loss proper ventilation By applying these tips you will notonly significantly reduce the cost of paying for electricity, but also make it cozy and warm, and read about how to make your home in our other articles.
