How to save electricity?

Electricity is the main source of energy for most appliances in a modern household. It represents a significant cost item in the family budget. The biggest consumer of electricity is heating, hot water heating, cooking on an electric hob or stove, washing machine and dryer, lighting, small electrical appliances, audio and computer technology.

We recommend air conditioning, whirlpools, filtration and pool water heating to above-standard energy consumers. Control your smart home with your voice, hand movements, and gestures. Control heating, cooling, TV, lighting, music, coffee making, blinds, or other actions automatically and without restrictions. Keep track of consumption.

Household Appliances

Check the inclusion of your electrical appliances in the energy class . Gradually replace the appliances with the biggest consumption and replace them with new ones. Consider not only the electricity consumption parameter in kWh/year, but also how often and for how long you will use the device. This means that an appliance with a high consumption of electricity used occasionally does not consume as much energy in a year as an appliance with a low consumption used daily NON STOP. An example is a kettle versus a combined fridge-freezer.

The energy label indicates classification in classes A to G. Devices in class A have the smallest annual consumption in kWh/year . The label also contains other information about the appliances. A class indicating noise emissions in dB in the range A to D. In the case of a refrigerator, you will find information on the volume of non-freezing compartments in liters in the range X to Z, or the volume of freezing compartments in liters in the range X to Z. In the case of washing machines, you will also find the water consumption per cycle in liters, or the capacity of dining sets for one wash. On the energy label you will also find a QR code for your smartphone with additional data in accordance with the EU regulation.

Instead of slowly heating the air, they heat people and objects with their infrared radiation. They are very efficient, they convert up to 98% of electrical energy into heat , they do not stir up dust, they do not create noise, they are also suitable for allergy sufferers. You will use them mainly in the transitional period in spring and autumn. You will like them in bathrooms or in corridors. They are also programmable through mobile applications. But be careful. It is not enough to just heat! You must prevent heat from escaping.

  • Consider the possibility of air recovery systems. Recovery heats incoming air in winter and cools it in summer. In addition, it filters dirty air and removes impurities. Recovery is closely related to all heat and air exchange devices in the home.
  • Fireplaces. Install a stylish additional heat source. In addition to the aesthetic aspect, a suitable fireplace will also save electricity. In the case of air recovery, consider a system with a closed combustion chamber when choosing a fireplace insert.

You will achieve maximum savings when you turn off the air conditioner.

However, it is more energy efficient to prevent heat from entering the room. Use external or internal shading . Shade all windows. Try fixed or retractable awnings over doors and windows. Blinds and blinds made of different materials. Textile, bamboo or stylish blinds Day and night. Window films in the form of stickers will also prevent the room from heating up too quickly.

The current trend is the connection of automatic shading technology with the SMART HOME control center and control from a tablet, computer, or smartphone.
