Improve the Energy Efficiency of Your Home
You can improve your
home’s energy efficiency by using smart technology , using power
management controls on your computer, and more. This can reduce your carbon
footprint and save you money over time.
In this month’s blog at
Worthy Electrical Services Ltd we look at how to improve the energy
efficiency of your home. Call us in Dulwich on 020

information. Use Smart Technology
You can easily keep track of the energy you have used
with a smart meter or In Home Display (IHD). Additionally, you will also know
when it was used and how much it cost. Smart meters help you cut down on waste
and save money with accurate, real-time information about your electricity
Replacing your old light bulbs with LEDs
(light-emitting diodes) will also help reduce your energy consumption and save
money over time. LED bulbs last up to 10 times longer than normal ones and they
are currently the most efficient option.
You can also link LED lighting to mobile apps, allowing
you to control when they switch on and for how long, no matter where you are.
Additionally, you can use smart controls such as PIR (passive infrared sensors)
to automatically turn lights on and off when the sensors detect motion.
Save Energy in the Kitchen
Many of the appliances we use in the kitchen require a
lot of electricity to run, so reducing consumption in this area of the home
will have a significant impact. Some easy ways to save energy in the kitchen
Fully Load a
Dishwasher Before Washing Set Fridges
& Freezers at the Right Temperature Hang Clothes Out
to Dry (Instead of Using a Tumbledryer) Use the Eco
Settings on Your Appliances Cover Cooking
Pans & Pots
Making these changes can improve the energy efficiency
of your home, saving you money and reducing your carbon footprint.
Put Your Computer to Sleep
Computers and televisions are commonly left on during
the day in our homes. It is convenient to keep them on rather than shutting
them down during breaks from using them.
However, these appliances require a lot of electricity
to run. One method of reducing the energy consumption of your equipment is to
use the sleep mode.
For example, if you work from home, if you put your
computer and screen to sleep during your lunch break rather than leaving it on,
you will be using less electricity. Many appliances come with power management
features to make this an easy process to set up.
