How to save electric power
“Dimming” more energy-efficient
Over the weekend, to a neighbor’s small home. He has just renovated, small said: “I decorated the main purpose of this time, is to take the saving type products ‘ introduction ‘. ”
Xiao Zhao’s House was bought by seven or eight years ago, when moved in the House was simply decorated. This year, he and wife decided to redecorate homes. In the decoration material, they agreed, should pay attention to
Environmental protection, should also pay attention to saving material.
Xiao Zhao pointed to the living room ceiling and said, here are two chandeliers, each lamp has a dozen bulbs, add up to more than 500 Watts of power. For a bad light bulb is very troublesome, and electricity. Now, living room into two lamp ceiling lamp, each light has two sets of energy-saving lamps can emit yellow and white respectively. With that, he shows up: “press a button, light yellow lamp light; press the switch again, white light lamp light; then click on, yellow and white lamps are lit up. “Xiao Zhao said, usually watching television, open lamp on the trip; children learn while doing homework, a lamp full on, light is enough. A set of lamps is more than more than 50 watts of power, electricity consumption compared to the original chandelier save a lot. This “light” energy-saving lamps not only energy-efficient, and easier to use.
Also, small house, two bathrooms, toilets used to be old fashioned, pressed hub 9 liters of water, looking distressed. Now, Zhao was replaced by small two-button 3/6 liters of water-saving toilet.
Changed so many energy-saving appliances, decoration expenses will increase? Xiao Zhao’s experience is that the saving type products are not necessarily expensive. High middle and low market-saving products have now, selection is huge. He bought this kind of ceiling light elegant beautiful, prices are 228 Yuan, rather than the cheaper prices of chandelier. Energy-saving lamp price is more expensive than standard bulbs, but count saves electricity, and cost-effective.
Family-saving products are still “dead”
Reporter learned that, although more resource-efficient products on the market more, but there are still consumers of such products is not enough “system” and cannot meet domestic needs.
Speaking of water, who lives in Tongzhou district of Beijing, Wu’s wife actually has a lot of trouble. She said home, washing machines, toilets consume large quantities of water, especially in summer, family shower, clothes and change frequently, so consumption is even greater. Washing machine water washed clothes, her existing plastic bucket used to sweep the floor and flush the toilet. But washer hose is low, you cannot directly put the water into the bucket, can only receive in the basin, then the bowl and pour the water into a bucket. Washing machine to wash 40 minutes, Boyle NG bent inside 40 minutes. Wu’s wife, earthy way of water-saving tired and nothing but some of the water is not recycled, made her feel very sorry that: “like a shower of bath water, can also be used to sweep the floor and flushing. But now can’t get them set up and run to waste it’s really a shame. ”
Earthy way of saving water, no problem for older adults, and for the working pressure and the burden of household chores is a strong young man, it’s with no small difficulty.
Home building materials city outside Beijing, reporters encountered was the selection of bathroom products, a middle-aged College teacher. He said that now all have water-saving awareness, but to what extent it is another matter. He certainly will not buy the kind with lots of rainfall showerheads, water “luxury bath”, also can choose to water-saving taps and water-saving toilets, but not as aunt uncle who did “circular” water, too much trouble, cannot afford to spend so much time. He hoped that if there was a water-saving products on the market, integrated systems that use domestic water well. In this way, water can not only save time and effort, and eliminate household waste of water resources, “space”.
Comprehensive promotion to work harder
Several reporters visited the Beijing building materials market, found to purchase water-saving energy-saving products, mostly just bought new houses being decorated consumers, families with housing are using non-conserving products, not many active money or replace-saving product. The reason, mainly some consumers felt that all my stuff still doesn’t work, then get a new, is a waste of time. Vintage faucets, toilets and well “waste away” to spend hundreds of dollars or even thousands of dollars into a conservation-minded products, economic worth.
Experts believe that building a conservation-minded society is the event will benefit future generations, cannot be counted in front of the economic accounts. At present, the urban family non-energy-efficient products are still in heavy use, energy efficient products also required an extra effort. Governments and relevant departments at all levels must take compulsory measures, non-saving products are restricted or even banned in addition to actively open up ways, and wasteful non-efficient product is being used to upgrade. For example, the relevant departments can join hands with the business, distributed free to residents of water-saving faucet, or charge a small fee for onsite replacement of more than 9 litres flush toilet, economical products to enter more families.
Saving energy not only has to do it before you go out to turn off the lights, tighten the faucet, the leftovers to pack these things. Recently, the United States the prevention magazine published many small details of life to let you save energy.
Use compact fluorescent lamps. Each compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL) annual energy cost savings of $ 6. According to United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) data, energy-saving lamps 25%-saving energy than incandescent, extended service life 10 times.
Use the dishwasher. Germany, a study showed, compared with hand-washing, dishwashers only use one-sixth when running at full capacity of water and disinfect better.
Use energy saving device for your air conditioner.It can pay for itself and you take back money within 3months only.
Set the TV to the “standard” mode. Many TV factory image as “bright” and “light” mode, this mode makes images brighter, but it also consumes energy of 10%~20%. Images as much as possible back to “normal” or “standard” mode.
Screen savers do not use pictures. The environmental group, natural resources Defense Council (NRDC) expert jinmu·nuoerdun said: “the complex screen-saver, such as photos, animations, and more, will make the screen continued to shine, increases the power consumption. “Recommends that the screen saver can be set to” black screen after 5 minutes “.
Morning and evening watering the flowers. Watering during the day, especially in the hot sun, evaporation will not be able to penetrate deep into the soil, can also cause water to waste, watering the flowers preferably in the morning or the evening.
Unplug the charger after charging. Many people pulled out only after the end of charging phones, charger is still plugged in to the outlet, which will still have power loss and could result in fire and other hazards, we recommend charging unplug the charger.
Driving constant speed as much as possible. According to United States Department of energy data, sudden acceleration, brakes can be increased up to 33% of oil consumption. Recommended driving a constant speed, speed is also slow, energy-saving at the same time ensuring driving safety.
Clean up the trunk. According to the NRDC data, car trunk full of stuff, will increase fuel consumption by as much as 5%. Recommended periodic cleaning of the trunk, some things you can’t usually use move in a timely manner.
Cleaning the refrigerator. Fridge clutter will also increase energy consumption, recommends fridge only seven points. Need to be reminded that a refrigerator, not right next to the wall, it would be more than 5 cm intervals, or will obstruct the air circulation, to the detriment of refrigerator cooling, increased electricity consumption.
Refrigerator, almost used by every family, it has become an integral part of family life. But did you know that refrigerators have many ingenious uses, will bring greater convenience to your life?
1. White sweater long, yellow or black, before he had been a bright look, unfortunately, but was reluctant, then think of it this way: wash before the white sweater in the refrigerator freezer, 1 kid out to dry, its white color would be a degree of recovery.
2. the summer out of clean underwear in plastic bags before well into the fridge, and shower when I get back out and put on underwear, is cool and cool and comfortable.
3. candles in the summer, tends to distort. Keep it in the refrigerator, it can work long time without deformation. If the candle ignited stored for more than 24 hours in the refrigerator before, then the lights will drop the wrong behavior does not occur. Plug your this candle birthday cake wouldn’t be soiled by wax under the Jane.
4. egg Woumbou wipe it again, and then stand on the upside in the refrigerator will cling longer.
5. film of the long periods of inactivity, to be placed in the refrigerator, and even the original expiration date, it can still be used. Temporarily unused pharmaceuticals, batteries can also be stored in refrigerator and drug reduction efficiency for a long time, may extend the lifetime of the battery.
6. the refrigerator storing food, food between it and the wall, between food and food, there should be a 10 mm gap, which is conducive to air flow and food preservation. Middle of the refrigerator especially not too full, because location is not optimal cooling the fridge the lower middle, middle game not plugging the gap, cold air cannot flow down, perishable food corruption, lower.
7. fruit such as bananas, pineapples, and if stored for long periods in the refrigerator will deteriorate or peel the flesh turns black, so can be refrigerated before serving for a short time.
8. use the refrigerator to minimize and reduce the open time and frequency, particularly in summer, if you open too many times or too long will make the food hot and cold affect storage quality. In the hot summer months, refrigerator fear power cuts, after a long time, food will defrost in freezer gone bad. With small plastic bags of water frozen on the ice, has been placed in the freezer, it may prevent the temperature inside the refrigerator when the power outage caused by elevated food bad.
9. refrigerator door gasket surfaces where contact with the door seals and the box evenly with a layer of talcum powder or talcum powder, to prevent the paint on the door being sealed off, and the door can open and close freely, and extend the life of door seals.
how to properly start the refrigerator after a long power off
You need to take instant start 3 times to start the refrigerator after a long power off . Specific practice is plugged in and then unplug, in 5 minutes, repeat, a total of 3 times, then party to power.
Encountered after the initial boot, if unnatural or downtime, not cooling noise, leakage failure, should invite the professional maintenance of formal enterprises, do not themselves open to repair, so as not to expand the scope of failure.
Points for attention when used in summer
First, peacetime should clear the box of leftovers as soon as possible. Leftovers on the one hand easy to make refrigerator contents chuanwei, on the other hand are easily corroded by various bacteria, and therefore should be eaten as soon as possible, but remember to be heated before eating.
Second, you should regularly clean the refrigerator, about power washing once in three months. Cleaning including defrosting ice removal and wipe clean inside container.
Third, pay attention to cleaning the refrigerator door seal. Freezer door seal on more than a dozen species of microbial, is prone to various diseases of the human body, and therefore should be frequently cleaned. If you can wipe with alcohol-soaked dry cloth to clean the sealing strip, works best.
Summer is the peak, with stepped tariff implementation, how to reduce the high temperature period of electricity consumption “lines” to reduce “ultra slot” arising from increased electricity costs became public this summer that “compulsory”. Power consumption in daily life, what are the little details that can help us save expenditure? Reporters invite relevant persons and the power you talk about power-saving tips.
Degree 6-7℃ on Air conditioner,Don`t put too thick in freezor
Electricity sector are expected this summer air conditioning load could break through 5 million-kilowatt, accounted for the city’s top load 25%. Air conditioning electricity consumption, electricity for ordinary residential users “Tai Tau”, how much more economic, power authorities concerned indicated that air conditioning, the temperature cannot be adjusted too low, because air conditioners under the control of the temperature, the lower power consumption by more general 6-7, room temperature is reduced. Refrigeration at room temperature when Gao 1, low heating temperature set 2 degrees can save electricity by more than 10% and almost fail to notice the small variations of the human body.
Still, when on, set high cold/heat, as quickly achieve control purposes; when the temperature is appropriate, modified, low wind, reducing energy consumption, reducing noise. “Ventilation” switch cannot be in a normally open condition, otherwise it will increase power consumption. Leave doors and Windows can reduce outside heat enters, conducive to energy saving. Use the air conditioner room, preferably a thick texture of drapery, to reduce cold air loss. Indoor and outdoor connecting does not exceed the recommended length, can enhance the cooling effect. The Nightside to try to choose a room air conditioner installation, avoid direct exposure to sunlight the fuselage. If you do not have this condition should be stamped with Sun shroud of air conditioners. Periodically clean the outdoor dust on the heatsink, clean. Too much dust on the heatsink, can greatly increase the power consumption.
Then the same refrigerator is cooling off a sharp object and what power-saving tips? According to reports, the current market A++ level of energy-efficient refrigerator than regular refrigerators and electricity-saving. Home energy-saving refrigerators consume 0.5-0.8 degrees a day, while a normal fridge power consumption 1-1.5 kilowatt-hours of electricity a day, about half of the province. In addition, the refrigerator in the process should be aware of the following issues: refrigerated items not too close, leave a gap against the cold air circulation, so cool food faster, reducing the number of compressor operation to save energy; put it in the fridge when fresh fruits and vegetables, be sure to keep them spread out. If fruit and vegetable heap in together, will caused outside cold heat, on will consumption more of power; for those size larger of food, can according to family each edible of weight separated packaging, once only removed a times edible of volume, and without put a chunks food are from refrigerator in take out, with not finished again put back, repeatedly frozen both waste power, and easy on food produces damage; thaw of method has water rushed, and natural thaw, several. Eating a few hours before, you can get food from the freezer (4 degrees) get frozen in room (1 degree), because the air conditioner can help keep the temperature of frozen foods, reducing compressor operation, so as to achieve the purpose.
TV standing 10 hours consumes half a degree,high power cooker take less electricity.
Apart from refrigerators, air conditioners, and like television sets, washing machines, rice cookers are dealing every day household electrical appliances, and what usage details that can help us save electricity? According to reports, there are rice cookers on the market are divided into two: one is the machinery in the rice cooker, another computer in the rice cooker. When using mechanical electric rice cooker, rice cooker cover on a towel, taking care not to cover the vent, which can reduce the heat loss. When rice soup after boiling, lift the press uses electric heat soup with dehydrated, then press down key, and simmer for 15 minutes and serve immediately. After use, the rice cooker, be sure to disconnect the power plug, or when temperature drops below 70 degrees inside the rice cooker will automatically power on so that both electricity and shortens the service life. Try to choose power large electric rice-cooker, boil the same amount of rice, 700-Watt rice cooker ratio 500-watt rice cooker to save time. Computerized rice cooker power generally larger, at around 800 watts, thereby saving, but the price is slightly expensive, generally between 500 Yuan to 800 Yuan.
TV energy-saving can be done through the following ways: first of all control the contrast and brightness of the color TV set power consumption can vary greatly for the lightest and darkest 3O Watts to 50 Watts, recommend that indoor open a low-wattage fluorescent lamp, increase contrast and brightness to the TV is the best. Followed by controlling the volume, louder, higher power consumption. Third way is when watching DVDs, the best in AV mode. In AV mode, the signal is direct access, reduced TV tuner work naturally reduces power consumption. Is watching TV after IV, you can’t use the remote shutdown, turn off the power to the TV. After remote shutdown, TV is still in the machine ready for use, and electricity. Under normal circumstances, standby for 10 hours, which is equivalent to consume half a degree. Finally, the dust cover up the TV, this prevents the TV sucked into dust, dusty has increased power consumption.
Washing machine use may wish to take note of these details, you can help us save some unnecessary power consumption costs, if there are enough laundry, centralized scrubbing methods determined according to types and the degree of soiling of clothes washing; using light to dry clothes as much as possible, to reduce the use of dryer, if necessary, dehydration time 1.5 minutes; do not power on idling.
Every summer will frequently use air conditioning, air conditioning maintenance is very important. Partly because air conditioner go out of air breathing everyone relates to each of the family’s health. For old people and children, in particular, vulnerable, so be sure to pay attention to cleaning of the air conditioner. Also, the air conditioning, proper maintenance, can save energy and reduce costs. Air conditioning maintenance is not difficult to do, both relating to family health and to conserve power, coke, but not for it?
How to make air conditioners use less battery power and air-conditioned rooms suitable for farming of flowers kids room air conditioning in two working people pay attention to long-term stay room and health considerations
Nowadays people are health-promoting life. We were eating green food, with environmentally friendly furniture, and our common household appliances-air conditioner, is most likely hiding these harmful bacteria. Vast majority of indoor air is recycled, so the room often accumulate many bacteria, germs, mold, makes the air circulate with a large amount of harmful gases such as formaldehyde, benzene, ammonia, radon and smell, lots of floating dust and suspended particles, such as smoke, a serious threat to human health. Air conditioning is like the human body, without maintenance, its function must fall if it does not clean up its “visceral”, it gives off gases will be cloudy.
Recently, the experts reminded the public that for his family’s health and the long-term effectiveness of the air-conditioning, might as well give it a thorough cleaning and disinfection of the air conditioning at home. Not only does this eliminate air pollution risks, can also make the air glow as new electricity-saving energy-saving, longer service life. Does not clean the air conditioner may be “sick” in the operation of air conditioning, due to internal static vacuums, and always maintain air flow and heat exchange with the outside world, dirt and dust in the environment very often for air conditioning (like smoke in the air conditioning room, kittens, puppies, perfume, and so on. Odor and bacteria). Such as mineral fibre would become a carrier of the bacteria, viruses and mold, blowing House, indoor air pollution, due to internal and external machine is dirty, causing bad cooling, power consumption increased failure rate increase will significantly shorten the life of air conditioning.
Air conditioning clean maintenance with special attention within and outside condenser and evaporator, which blocked the dust and germs, once it has been blown out, it will lead to larger-scale infection.
Annual cleaning, disinfection, air conditioning “visceral” key to the cure “air-conditioning disease” is very important for periodic cleaning of the air conditioner.
When clean air conditioning for most users, is really just the enclosure, Panel and filter has been cleaned, while the internal condenser and evaporator specific components, such as there is no way, but that the latter is often a breeding ground for bacteria. Such as the air conditioning running, 80% micro dust and bacteria from the air through the filter into air conditioning, after bonding and condensation water plug in on the evaporator, effects of refrigeration, air conditioning and heat dissipation, while the damp evaporator surface is a hotbed of reproduction of bacteria.
Current concept of clean air conditioning just clean the strainer at this level, in fact, dirt accumulation in the evaporator of air conditioning aluminum slot, apparently cannot see at all, only the dirt can be launched with a special-purpose air conditioning cleansing agent.
Benefits of air conditioning clean:
(1) comprehensive clearing breeding ground for bacteria, thereby significantly reducing infection with the bacteria.
(2) comprehensive clean indoor and outdoor heat exchanger, the air conditioning run at normal working state. More power, longer life for making air conditioners.
Every summer will frequently use air conditioning, air conditioning maintenance is very important. Partly because air conditioner go out of air breathing everyone relates to each of the family’s health. For old people and children, in particular, vulnerable, so be sure to pay attention to cleaning of the air conditioner. Also, the air conditioning, proper maintenance, can save energy and reduce costs. Air conditioning maintenance is not difficult to do. Relates to both a family’s health and conserve power, coke, but not for it?
How to maintain the air conditioner:
(1) warm water scrubbed; don’t use irritating detergents. When cleaning, air conditioning, and can choose a dry sunny day, air-conditioner’s function keys in the “air”, the working 3-4 hours, air conditioning moisture distribution inside, and then turn off the air conditioner, disconnect the power plug. Use a soft, dry cloth to clean the air conditioner casing dirt, scrub can also be used warm water, never use hot water or flammable chemicals such as oil scrub. Then, clean the air filter remove the air conditioner, rinse with water or clean the filters with a vacuum cleaner, mount air conditioners again after drying. Remove the battery of the remote control with separate to avoid battery leakage liquid corrosion of internal components. The remote control must be placed in a dry place, do not squeeze. Clean the outdoor unit, rinse available outside unit condenser surface after drying hood cover, other parts are not available to water.
(2) when cleaning the air conditioning inside, open the shell, with a brush (dry) inside the air conditioner condenser, evaporator, fan blade, motor and other components for a full range of cleaning, it is best to use a vacuum cleaner to suck dust off of it. Be careful not to bruise the internal parts with metal heat sinks, preventing the fan, heatsink variants. Especially don’t fall off or touch the connector line is cut off.
(3) Suggest to use air conditioner energy saver.It can help your air conditioner to save energy from 13% to 20%.
Of course, cleaning difficulties encountered, or open the shell, for air conditioners is not very familiar with, may require site cleanup professional maintenance personnel.
