Energy Saving Tips For Your Living Room

14 April 2016

PINERGY puts you back in control of your spending. Here are some useful electricity saving tips to help you maximise your savings.

Lighting

  • Choose light bulbs carefully.
  • New compact fluorescent bulbs screw in the same as regular (incandescent) bulbs, but use only about one-quarter to one-third the energy and last longer.
  • Install dimmer switches.
  • They use less energy and let you enjoy a choice of lighting levels for different tasks.
  • Use LED lights instead of Halogen bulbs this may require a change of fitting.

Television

  • A television in standby mode can use up to as much as half the electricity as when it is switched on.

Windows

  • Curtains can cut heat loss in half if they have an insulating liner.
  • Let your curtains hang loose and be sure they don’t block radiators.
  • Vinyl shades and quilted curtains help cut heat loss.
  • Shutters and blinds don’t work as well because air travels through their open spaces.
  • Close curtains on north-facing windows to keep the chill out in winter.
