Keep your house cool in summer by saving energy

Is it possible to keep the house cool without our electricity bill suffering this summer? Of course, we are going to tell you how.

The arrival of summer and the increase of temperatures makes it almost mandatory to use aircon units, but if you can keep your house cool, you can reduce its time of use and thus your electricity bill will not increase during these months.

6 tips to keep your house cool in summer saving money on your bill.

Today we propose 6 tips that you can put into practice (according to the OCU) to maintain your home fresh without using so many hours of air conditioning and to save electricity.

1. Take advantage of natural ventilation.

When the temperature starts to drop outside the house, open the windows. Take advantage of natural ventilation at first time of day or night and open the windows on opposite facades, to cause a stream of air due to the difference in temperature between them.

2. Try to prevent the entry of hot air.

The elementary measure is to keep closed doors, windows and blinds in the hottest hours, between morning and afternoon. We recommend that you use awnings to protect your home during those central hours of the day.

3. Use fans most of the time.

A fan does not reduce the air temperature, but it makes it circulate faster and the feeling of freshness is higher.

4. Try to reduce heat sources.

Limit the use of appliances and light bulbs. Try not to use the oven, the iron, the dryer or any appliance that works with heating elements during the hottest hours.

5. Place shade-generating plants on the terrace.

Use large plants with long leaves on the terrace or balcony to get shade inside your room and keep them cooler. Another idea is to place ivy, vines or other types of climbing plants on your facade, as they contribute to reduce the temperature of the walls.

6. Bet on light colours and fresh fabrics.

During the months of more heat, forget about rugs and use cooler fabrics in your rooms, such as cotton or linen. Also, decorate with light colours such as white, light grey or beige, since they do not absorb light or heat.

Tips to save money with your appliances

Maintenance of your appliances. Tips to save on your energy consumption with good cleaning and maintenance.

As you know, making good use of household appliances is critical for saving money monthly on the electricity bill. Sometimes we forget that good maintenance of our home’s electrical appliances can help us to save money and to make a responsible use of energy.

Maintaining a proper cleaning of appliances makes them consume less. Dust on the vents or grease accumulation may cause the engine not cooling with enough power and to when it tries to compensate for the lack of power the appliance consumes more.

Tips to save light with the maintenance of your appliances

● Refrigerator: Separate the refrigerator from the wall to help the heat spread well from the back. In addition, you should clean this part of the refrigerator every 3 or 4 months with a dry cloth or vacuum cleaner. Dirt accumulated in this area makes it difficult to dissipate heat extracted from the refrigerator and increases consumption.

● Oven: it is important to clean it often because accumulated fat reduces its ability to heat. We recommend that you use the microwave instead of the oven, it saves between 60% and 70% of energy and time.

● Dishwasher and washing machine: do not forget to keep the washing machine filter clean, thus avoiding obstructions and improving the operation of the appliance. Use the water softener to remove impurities and lime from your washing machine filter. The interior should be cleaned periodically especially around the rubbers and door seals, where food scraps accumulate. Also rinse the filter after each wash.

● Air conditioning: the air conditioning also needs maintenance for good equipment condition. Clean the filters at least once every 12 months. Cleaning can be carried out with any water and cleaning product. Filters cannot be replaced until they are completely dry.

● Dryer: Always clean the dryer filter after finishing drying clothes, it improves air circulation and prevent possible accidents. Also, inspect the dryer ventilation hole to make sure it’s not clogged to save energy.

5 tips to illuminate the garden in spring saving on your electricity bill

Spring has arrived and with it the good weather and the desire to enjoy outdoors of your home during day and night. Surely you are thinking of getting your garden or terrace ready so that it becomes an extension of your house but, apart from the furniture and decoration, you should not forget the lighting as a key element.

It is important that the lighting of the exteriors is done efficiently to set the atmosphere for your dinners or evening talks without seeing it increased in the price of your electricity bill. For this, we recommend you to have an adequate lighting system that facilitates energy savings.

5 tips to illuminate the garden while saving on your electricity bill

  • Divide the lighting areas of your garden by environments. Each of them will have its own lighting and it will not be necessary to turn on all the lights at the same time. This way you will be able to illuminate efficiently and to reduce your energy consumption.
  • Place several light switches to control the ignition in the area you are going to use and not the entire garden.
  • Install motion sensors and programmable lights so that the lighting of certain areas is switched on at the exact moment needed, for example, when it starts to get dark. You will avoid wasting energy and will save on your bill every day.
  • Use downward lighting, placed at high points and slanted downward. Thus, you will avoid light pollution, respect the rest of your neighbours and illuminate the areas that you really need at that time.
  • Last but not least, always use Led technology, as it will allow you to reduce your energy consumption considerably. Led lights are more resistant to extreme temperatures and humidity. You will find in the market countless options to illuminate efficiently with this type of technology such as spotlights, wall lights, floating lamps, floor lamps…etc.
