Energy is vital for almost every task that we perform in our life. Therefore, energy conservation is considered the most significant way to overcome an energy crisis. Energy conservation provides a greater solution to energy deficiency and ensures a better world for our future generations. We need to be more energy efficient in our day-to-day lives.
A change over to clean and renewable energy sources like wind, solar and geothermal energy is very essential to reduce the use of fossil fuels. Burning fossil fuels causes environmental degradation. Environmental degradation reduces the ability of the earth to support its growing world economy. It makes it impossible to foster one’s life without the use of energy from various resources.
Be more energy efficient by developing clear strategies to overcome the threatening energy crisis. Energy efficiency means providing the same level of service by reducing energy use. When we reduce our energy consumption, we can save the environment from the construction of new power plants. We can be a part of energy conservation by applying the latest technologies and taking appropriate measures. Even at home, we are wasting more energy due to our careless activities. There are many ways to reduce the consumption of energy:
Turn off electronic devices when you leave a room for more than 5 minutes. Large LCDs and other similar electronic items consume energy even when they are not in use. Therefore, unplug all of these electronic devices until you use them again. The stand-by mode of electronic devices such as TV, radio, computer and others consume more energy.
The use of a programmable thermostat allows you to set a balancing temperature at your home. A recommended parameter is 74 degrees for an air conditioner and 68 degrees for a furnace. It provides greater comfort while reducing energy consumption and costs.
Use Energy Efficient Appliances
When you purchase electronic appliances, look for Energy Star labels. The cost of the product may increase when you purchase Energy Star-labelled appliances such as refrigerators, dryers, washers, freezers, air conditioners, computers and so on. However, you can save a good amount of money on energy costs by using these appliances.
Energy Efficient Bulbs
Replace all your incandescent lights with LED lights and save up to 25 percent off your energy costs. In addition, LED lights are long lasting in nature. However, don’t forget to turn off the lights when you leave the room.
When you save a drop of water, you become a part of energy conservation. Make sure that all faucets at your home and workplace are in a good condition and aren’t wasting even a drop of water. Be mindful and turn off the spigot while scrubbing dishes or brushing your teeth.
Trees planted in the right place provide a cooling atmosphere which reduces your cooling costs up to 25%. Deciduous trees provide shade during the summer season and drop their leaves during winter allowing the sun to warm your home.
