Energy Conservation Tips

Lights and fans

  • Switch off lights and fans when not in use
  • Use natural day light as far as possible during day time.
  • Replace incandescent lamps with energy efficient lamps like CFLs, LED lights etc.
  • Use 28 watts T5 tubes in place of 40 watts T12 tubes
  • Use electronic ballast in place of conventional chokes for tube lights.
  • Use electronic speed regulators for ceiling fans.
  • Lubricate fans regularly

Refrigerator

  • Check the gasket for leak and prevent hot air entering inside
  • Don’t open the door frequently
  • Place the fridge in place where there is sufficient natural air passage
  • Defrost the fridge to avoid ice accumulation
  • Don’t keep food materials in hot condition

  • Clean the filters, condenser coils and thermostat at regular intervals.
  • Avoid frequent opening of doors and windows.
  • Installation of need screens in air-conditioners.
