Energy Conservation

Energy Conservation Tips

  • Set your air-conditioners at the optimal temperature of 25°C. On cool days, use a fan or open the windows for natural ventilation.
  • Unplug electronic devices, or switch them off at the plug when they are not in use. Leaving them on standby mode will still result in a phantom load of 15%.
  • When you are buying electrical appliances, remember to look out for the energy efficiency level of the device. Although an energy efficient appliance may cost a little bit more, you will recover the extra money spent with savings in your energy bills.

  • Make improvements to your household lighting by using energy-efficient lightbulbs such as the compact fluorescent bulbs, which provide the same energy levels as incandescent bulbs but last 4 to 10 times longer.
  • Switch off the lights when you leave the room. The common belief that turning on the lights will result in a surge which uses up more electricity is fallacious.
