Energy Saving Tips for the SummerMay 6, 2024

energy saving tips

Summer brings with it the joys of summer holidays, pitter-patter of raindrops and loads of fun activities. However, summer also comes with rising temperatures, scorching heat and spiraling energy bills. Here is a look at some ways to save on your energy consumption this summer:

Use Fans Wisely

Fans, whether mounted on the wall, ceiling or free standing, all help to circulate the air and cool down the room. This effect is further enhanced with the air-conditioning system. However, do switch off the fan when leaving the room.

Thermostat Efficiency

Set your thermostat at the highest comfortable temperature to save on energy use. Invest in an automatically-adjusting programmable thermostat for greater energy savings.

Natural Ventilation

Reduce heat ingress by closing the curtains and blinds during the peak heat times. Likewise, allow natural ventilation by keeping windows open during the cooler early morning hours and late evenings.

Improve HVAC Efficiency

Get a professional to service your air-conditioning system before the summer sets in to reduce energy consumption as well as improve its performance. This will also extend its lifespan.

Energy Star Certification

When buying appliances, opt for those offering higher star ratings for energy efficiency. Refrigerators, washing machines and air conditioners with 3 to 5-star ratings consume less energy while still delivering great performance.

Sealing and Insulation

Seal and caulk all points of air leakage around the windows and doors to prevent loss of cooler inner air and ingress of hot air from the outside. You could also consider heat treatment of walls and terraces and further reduce your energy bills.

Heat Generating Activities

Limit indoor cooking and use of heat-generating appliances such as ovens or incandescent light bulbs during the hotter times of the day. This will reduce the extra energy spent on cooling the house further.

Heat Island Effect

To prevent sunlight from hitting your home directly and heating it up, create more shade around your home by planting branching trees and setting up awnings, blinds and covering of terraces. This will cut down on energy used to cool down your home.

Unplug your appliances when not in use as many continue to contribute towards ‘phantom’ energy usage. Incorporating all these energy-saving tips will help you stay comfortable while reducing energy usage!
