Do you know you can reduce the money you pay for electricity by half monthly? Also if you are using inverter, you can increase your battery backup time by following the steps below.

  1. Change all your lighting points to LED bulbs of say 3Watt or 5watt. The normal incandescent bulbs used by most households in Nigeria are rated 60Watt and 100Watt. Compare 60Watt with 3Watt and see the wide gap. Some persons use energy saver bulbs whose power ratings are still as high as 20Watt, 18Watt and so on. If you can change all your lighting points as directed, you will be saving a lot. To get the 3 or 5 Watt LED bulbs, just contact us with the mobile number provided or send us a message and we will deliver it to you.
  2.  Change all your electrical appliances as much as possible to inverter friendly types since their power ratings are far less. For example, we have inverter friendly refrigerators of 75Watt, 100Watt and 200Watt and they are still very efficient.
  3. Turn off your loads when you’re not using them. There is no point leaving your light on when nobody is in the house. The same applies to other appliances.
  4. Turn off the sockets where your loads are plugged whenever you turn off the load because some appliances like TV, monitor etc still draw some current if they are still on the socket provided the sockets are on.
  5. Use task lighting (table and desktop lamps) for concentrated illumination where it is needed instead of room lighting as this will eliminate the need for many lighting points for good illumination
  6. Laptop consumes less energy than desktop. Most laptop chargers are rated 60W and this is small compared with a desktop with a higher power rating.
  7. If you are using desktop, use LCD instead of CRT monitor as LCD consumes much less power than CRT.
  8. Note that the monitor consumes more energy than the system unit so you may off the monitor and leave the system unit on when you are not using the system at the moment but don’t want to shut down.
  9. Turn down the brightness on your computer monitor as that will minimize power consumption.
  10. what applies to computer monitor applies to TV
  11. Plug your printer only when you need to print.
  12. Note that laser jet printers use more power than inkjet printers
  13. Ensure your food is cool and covered before sending it to the refrigerator so that it can cool more quickly because hot food takes more energy to cool in the refrigerator.
  14. Keep your freezer as full as possible for fast freezing. You can use containers filled with water for empty spaces.
  15. Ensure the door of the refrigerator is firm and tight.
  16. Note that old model refrigerators consume more energy so try and replace them with modern ones.
  17. It is good to defrost your fridge regularly because when ice builds up, the freezer uses more electrical energy.
  18. Ensure that there is enough ventilation space behind the refrigerator.
  19. If the fridge will not be used for a long time, empty it, turn it off and leave the door open.
  20. Learn to dry your laundry on a clothesline outside instead of using the electrical dryer.
  21. Insulate your house so that it will not be releasing much air-conditioned air during hot weather or heated air during cold weather.
  22. Dress as the season demands so that you will not always need the help of your appliances (air-conditioner or heater) to feel comfortable.
