Saving for the future
Becoming energy efficient does not only mean saving the environment ,but makes perfect business sense too ...
Saving energy and saving the environment are no more just topics discussed and deliberated upon in forums and conferences;it has become every business and every individual's responsibility to save for the future and hand over a better world to the coming generations.Adopting energy efficient ways is one crucial element when it comes to saving the environment . There is crucial need of improving energy scenario in the country, making optimum use of the existing energy resources,adopting energy conservation measures scrupulously,and with the least of costs.by improving the energy conservation measures , there will be a direct as well as indirect positive impact on India's economy.
Home Cooling Tips and Energy-Efficient Alternatives
Personal Cooling Alternatives:
- Install ceiling fans.
- Or if you already have them, dust those blades and check they are set to circulate in the right direction to cool the air (counter-clockwise in the summer). It's a widely known fact that using a ceiling fan can help you feel up to 5 degrees cooler. If you have a room that can't seem to stay cool, an investment in a small box or oscillating fan may be a worthwhile addition to personal cooling.
- Dress for the weather.
- Less clothing, lightweight fabrics, sandals, etc all make more sense than turning your AC unit low enough to need a sweater.
- Cool your skin.
- Keep a wet washcloth in the fridge or freezer for use around your neck, forehead or feet for personal cooling when coming in from the heat to avoid turning down the AC in a moment of desperation.
Expert Tips for Saving Energy with Home Lighting
Make use of natural light
Nothing’s nicer than natural light, and in terms of energy use, nothing’s more efficient. A single skylight or properly positioned window can provide as much light as dozens of light bulbs during the daylight hours. To benefit more from natural lighting you may need to rearrange the furniture in your rooms—putting your favorite reading chair over by the south window, for example. Or you may want to go to more effort and install one or more skylights. To help get that light deeper into the room, you can paint your walls a light color and use reflective louvers or Venetian blinds
Reduce background light levels and rely more on task lighting
You can save a lot of energy by concentrating light just where it’s needed and reducing background or ambient light levels. This strategy—called task lighting—is widely used in office buildings, but it makes just as much sense at home. Install track of recessed lights to illuminate your desk or the kitchen table where you do the crossword puzzle, and keep the ceiling lights off.
home Electricity Energy saving top tips
- Plug electronics into a power strip, then turn the strip off when not in use to save in energy costs.
- Avoid energy vampires. Even when they’re turned off, home electronics in “standby” mode use energy to power features like clock displays.
- Look for ENERGY STAR-qualified TVs – they’re up to 30 percent more efficient than noncertified models.
- Consider a laptop next time you're looking to buy a computer – they use less energy than desktop computers.
- Set your computer to sleep or hibernate mode instead of using a screen saver so it uses less electricity during periods of inactivity
fuel efficiency tips
1. Slow downOne of the best ways to save gas is to simply reduce your speed. As speed increases, fuel economy decreases exponentially. If you one of the "ten-over on the freeway" set, try driving the speed limit for a few days. You'll save a lot of fuel and your journey won't take much longer. (Just be sure you keep to the right, so you won't impede the less-enlightened.)
2. Check your tire pressureUnder-inflated tires are one of the most commonly ignored causes of crummy MPG. Tires lose air due to time . under-inflated tires have more rolling resistance, which means you need to burn more gas to keep your car moving. Buy a reliable tire gauge and check your tires at least once a month. Be sure to check them when they are cold, since driving the car warms up the tires along with the air inside them, which increases pressure and gives a falsely high reading. Use the inflation pressures shown in the owner's manual or on the data plate in the driver's door jamb.
3. Check your air filterA dirty air filter restricts the flow of air into the engine, which harms performance and economy. Air filters are easy to check and change; remove the filter and hold it up to the sun. If you can't see light coming through it, you need a new one.
