Tips to cutdown your Household Appliance energy usage

In most households, there are plenty of moving parts that keep things ticking over.

Electrical appliances make our lives more convenient in many respects. However, each of the electrical appliances we use requires energy to operate and can even be draining your supplies when on standby.

At Navitron, we specialise in technologies and solutions that can help you cut back on your mains electricity and energy usage. Our range of PV solar panels, wood burning stoves and off grid systems are designed with the environmentally-conscious in mind.

If you like our products and are looking to reduce your energy usage in the home as best you can, then finding ways to cut down on the amount of energy they use is a great idea. That’s why we’ve picked out a few ways to help you cut back on energy usage and live a more low-carbon lifestyle.

Everything in Moderation

When it comes to saving energy when using your household appliances, a lot of it’s to do with using what you need and not going over the top.

For example, if you can clean your clothes at 30 degrees, there’s no need to opt for 40 degrees unnecessarily. It might not be something you’ve considered, but this will cut down on the amount of energy required for a wash quite significantly.

Equally, don’t have 5 or 6 washes with a half full washing machine. Fill up and cut back on the number of washes you do!

Similarly, dishwashers can take up a lot of energy when doing a cycle. So don’t just whimsically stick the dishwasher on after every cup of tea. Fill it up and cut back on the number of times you use it. That will allow you to operate more energy-efficiently.

Shop Carefully

More and more manufacturers are aware of the need to be energy efficient today. When it comes to buying items like fridges and freezers, keep an eye out for stickers that indicate the model has been designed to be as energy efficient as possible. This can help you cut down on energy usage and save money in the long run.

Also, be savvy about how you run your fridge and freezer. Allow air to circulate around its back and defrost it regularly so it can operate effectively. And don’t put it next to your cooker or oven! This can impact how well it works due to the heat coming from nearby.

Small things can make a difference too. Why not opt for energy-efficient lightbulbs over other models? Or even consider using Evacuated Tube Solar Panels when making hot drinks and meals. These can help you cut back on energy usage too.

Get into Good Habits

There’s a host of ways to cut back. Turning lights off when leaving a room is an obvious one, but how diligent are you on this front?

You’ve likely been told to turn items like televisions off at the mains when not in use. But are you doing this? It’s a case of small differences making a big difference, so don’t be blasé or lazy. If you are truly committed to cutting back on your energy usage, these are the kinds of steps you should be looking to take every day.

At Navitron, our specialty is the provision of alternative energy options. The more energy created without using mains energy, the better. As a home or business owner, investing in alternative energy solutions can bring you long term financial savings, and give you the satisfaction of knowing you are making a difference to the planet.
