Tips to Manage Energy Consumption at Home During COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has grappled the world with several challenges and has impacted our lives in many ways. It has even changed the way we use our resources today. Since lockdown was announced in most parts of the world, everyone found themselves spending all of their time at home as opposed to when they chose to be at home post-school or work. This has definitely impacted the energy consumption pattern of every home. Being a responsible citizen at this hour of need is essential, which is why Runwal Forests has decided to share these tips to save energy and manage your daily energy consumption efficiently. Let's take a look!

1. Energy Saving in the Living Room

Energy Saving in the Living Room

The living room is a common space where you spend time with family, playing games or watching movies together. However, while you're making the most of your time with your loved ones, make sure you're utilizing energy efficiently. The most effective ways to save energy in your living rooms are:

  • Turn off the power supply of your TV sets and stereos when they are not in use
  • Save energy on your electronic devices when in use by turning on the energy-saving feature
  • Lower the brightness levels on all the TV and laptop screens

Also, avoid using tube lights and bulbs in the day, instead opt for natural light to brighten up the rooms in your house. This electricity saving tip will help you save energy and in turn, help reduce your carbon footprint.

2. Energy Saving in the Bathrooms

Energy Saving in the Bathrooms

Geysers account for an average of 60 units of electricity per month. If you have solar panels installed in your building, it can curb energy usage by up to 80%. However, if that's not the case, you can still find different ways to save energy. Use of energy-efficient lighting in the bathrooms and your entire house is the first step. Apart from this, you can adopt the following measures:

  • Keep your showers short and use lukewarm water
  • Depending on the quality of your water heater, turn it on only 15 minutes to 1 hour before, or as suggested in the manual, for maximum energy savings
  • Turn off the exhaust fan 15 minutes after the shower

3. Energy Saving in the Kitchen

Energy Saving in the Kitchen

Energy-efficient kitchen appliances can save your cooking time and bring down your energy consumption as well. Therefore, make sure that you:

  • Keep the refrigerator top and coils clean to maximize cooling and efficiency
  • Cover foods and liquids stored in the refrigerator as when left uncovered they release moisture and reduce the efficiency of the compressor
  • Use smaller appliances to cook one-person or two-person meals, like a toaster, electric pressure cooker, microwave oven, or a convection oven, rather than using a large stove or oven
  • Run the dishwasher only on a full load or better, let your dishes air dry

4. Use other Household Appliances Wisely

Use other Household Appliances Wisely

Managing energy efficiency and cutting back on your utility bills is essential as other energy-consuming appliances along with the ones mentioned above account for almost 20% of it.

  • Use ENERGY STAR certified LED bulbs and tube lights which consume 70-90% less energy than the standard bulbs
  • Service your air-conditioner regularly and replace or clean the filters every month
  • Clean the lint trap between loads to increase air circulation and the efficiency of the dryer
  • Air dry your clothes in the balcony rather than using the auto-dryer

These electricity saving tips will help you address your concerns related to energy consumption and its management. It will also help you lower your carbon footprint and also cut down your energy costs.
