Microwave ovens, air conditioners and television sets (to name a few) still consume about 40% of energy even when they are turned off so it’s smart to just unplug them from the sockets so they completely cease to use energy.

Pervading energy issues have many homeowners coming up with innovative measures to save on costs. One of the effective ways to do so as determined by professionals is by using appliances efficiently. While this may seem like a great idea for many people, not a lot of people know how to practice it, especially considering how complicated appliances are these days. According to Everest Electrical, Sydney’s leader in electrical services, the key is to understand and implement the fundamentals when it comes to energy consumption. Company reps claim that most of the time, it’s really just a matter of unplugging appliances that are not being used.
Everest Electrical has made it its mission to help homeowners save on energy costs through a wide range of methods including proper use of appliances. Apart from this energy-saving benefit, the strategies are also known to increase electrical safety and prevent fire hazards in the home.
The all-important first tip, according to Everest Electrical reps, is to operate appliances efficiently. Learning the best way to use appliances at home not only makes them work better, but makes them last longer as well. Experts claim that proper use of electrical appliances can cut costs, energy consumption and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Position, cleaning, care and maintenance, standby power, power management and daily operation lead to efficient appliance use. Typically, appliances come with a manual that includes instructions; take note of these instructions to ensure consistent good quality performance for a long time. If the appliance or gadget does not operate well despite proper usage, stop using it; faulty devices tend to use up too much energy, so have a domestic electrician see what’s wrong with it to determine if it should be repaired or completely replaced.
The second tip provided by EE is to switch off and unplug. “Microwave ovens, air conditioners and television sets (to name a few) still consume about 40% of energy even when they are turned off so it’s smart to just unplug them from the sockets so they completely cease to use energy,” advises a representative of Everest Electrical.
Reducing energy consumption is the final tip. There are numerous ways of going about this strategy; it can be a complete lifestyle change, making a switch to “green” alternatives, adjusting appliances to an energy-saving setting or just making that frequent conscious effort to avoid using electrical appliances, especially when natural ventilation and lighting are present. Whichever of the aforementioned methods homeowners go for can be expected to yield great electrical benefits.
