Reducing energy consumption

Ways to reduce the energy consumptions
  • The use of low energy light bulbs, which last longer and use less energy
  • Bulbs are not ment to lighten themselves. Turn off the lights when leaving the room
  • The use of insulated windows and doors. Through cracks a lot of heat can be lost in winter or summer
  • Save hot water
  • Cook in covered containers. Cooking time will be shorter, and power consumption can be up to three times less
  • Do not open refrigerator or freezer when it’s not necessary and not leave them open
  • Refrigerator and freezer mustn’t be exposed to the sun
  • If no one is watching television or listening to the radio, turn them of
  • Use washer, dryer and dishwasher in hours of low electricity prices
  • Switch off electronic devices after use.
