Easy to implement tips for proper energy saving

Responsible behavior means life …
In order for global warming to not get out of control, until 2050, carbon dioxide emissions should be reduced by 50%.
In industrialized countries is needed even 80%.

A simple calculation shows that for what consume one person in life, you need to burn 285 tons of coal (and hence result in other tones of CO2). Solar, wind and geothermal energy can respond to energy needs of the people, but not enough. They must be completed by responsible behavior of people – most economical and efficient. Therefore, each of us can contribute to slowing climate change which we are increasingly cautioned. And even the smallest changes in our habits can be accumulate to significantly reduce of carbon dioxide emissions. Any of us could reduce energy consumption by at least 25% just by purchasing energy efficient appliances. The new generation of appliances with low power consumption, lower consumption rate by 50% (class A +, A + +). Here are the best suggestions can be put into practice by all of us!

Interior home lighting emits on average nearly 1,000 pounds of carbon dioxide per year. If we replace half of all regular light bulbs with energy saving bulbs, we reduce carbon dioxide coming from lighting by 36%. Their consumption is 80% smaller than the classic.
If we disconnect computers from home when are not in use, we reduce their impact in terms of CO2 by 50%.

Forget stand-by
Electronics (TV, internet connection, radio, mobile phone charger) consume energy even when are not in use. The mechanism of “standby” means a consumption of 10 W, which is 85 kW per year, even for small appliances. Since 2010, according to EU regulations for new electronics will be allowed only consuming of 1 W, which would lead to an annual consumption of 8.5 kW. This considering that in 2000, in the 15 EU countries, due to the standby system, have been lost a total of 94 billion kW (consumption equivalent of 12 plants based on nuclear power plants or coal).

Save on washing
Wash clothes at lower temperatures and forget rewash! Normal underwear will be perfectly clean and you will reduce consumption by 80%. The tank of the machine must always be full.

Moderate temperature in the house

18 to 20 degrees Celsius is sufficient for a healthy environment in the house – may be even lower temperature in unused rooms and bedrooms. Keep doors closed to retain heat. Do not let the heat turned on when you’re not home. Install thermostats that automatically adjust room temperature. With each degree that you dropped in your room, save six percent of energy consumed for home.
