Energy Efficiency Tips

What is energy efficiency? or what is Energy Efficiency Tips?  Is it the same as energy saving ? The answer is not quite so! Energy efficiency is using less amount of energy to get the same desired output. For example, turning of lights is energy saving but using a fluorescent lamp instead of an incandescent lamp is energy efficiency!

Here are some things you can do to use energy more efficiently(Energy Efficiency Tips) :

Household Purposes:

  • Iron your washed clothes before they completely dry, this will allow your ironing to be done quickly while using a lesser amount of energy.

  • Bring items taken out of refrigerators (like vegetable, milk etc.) to room temperature before placing on the gas stove for heating.

  • Keep an eye out for a blue flame, which means your gas stove is operating efficiently.

  • When possible, cook in a microwave oven which uses 50% less energy than conventional electric or gas stoves.

  • While cooking, use lids to cover cooking pans.

  • Make the most of daylight by using light coloured curtains to allow light to come into the room.

  • Use Compact fluorescent bulbs instead of incandescent bulbs as they are four times more energy efficient and provide the same lighting.

  • You can replace conventional regulators with electronic regulators for ceiling fans.

  • You can install exhaust fans at a higher elevation than ceiling fans.

Industrial Purposes:

  • Control lighting with clock timers, delay timers, photocells, and/or occupancy sensors.

  • Use smooth, well-rounded air inlet cones for fan air intakes.

  • For motors- provide proper ventilation, check for under-voltage and over-voltage conditions, balance the three phase power supply, avoid repeated rewinding.

  • Provide temperature controllers for furnaces.

  • Use bolier blowdown to help warm up the back-up boiler.

  • The compressor of the central air conditioner should be located in a cool, shaded place outside.
