In the past 12 months we have experienced unprecedented increases in energy prices and with more increases set to be announced in the coming weeks. In Ireland we have seen on average an 87% increase in the price of gas & electricity since 2021.
Our aim at EazyCity is to share with you some good tips for responsible energy consumption and avoid the waste of energy while staying in our properties.
How to save electricity?
A number of basic actions can be taken to reduce electricity costs by making the best use of domestic appliances, electronic devices and the heating and lighting system in the home.
Here are some suggestions to avoid unnecessary waste of energy.
Be sure to organize the storage in the refrigerator so that the cold is distributed correctly.
Check for leaks.
Do not put hot dishes in the fridge or freezer. It is better to wait and let them cool out naturally.
Do not leave the door open for too long.
Keep the fridge temperature at medium temperature, not too high.
Run the washing machine on a cooler cycle, 30 degrees is fine for most clothing.
Put the washing machine on during off-peak hours.
Use the washing machine when you have a full load.
Do your laundry once a week
Avoid using it as much as possible.
When you use it, put your clothes in for the minimum amount of time possible.
OTHER KITCHEN APPLIANCES
Use the microwave to heat food but not to defrost it. You can let frozen food defrost in the fridge.
If you need to monitor the cooking, avoid opening the oven so that it does not lose heat.
Remember to clean the oven frequently.
When using the kettle, only boil as much water as you need.
