Save Money Saving Electricity

Updated: Dec 6, 2022

New year, new purposes. At the beginning of the new year, many of us propose many things which we want to improve. Improve work, leave some bad habits, be better for others, improve our health, etc.

One of the most mentioned purposes is to save, either time or money. Smart Choice Power is here to help in saving electricity. If you can save electricity, you will pay less on the electricity bill.

Where we spend most of the electricity.

How we use energy at home
What spends more energy in the house

The image shows the distribution and expenditure of energy in the home. As you can see, the heating and cooling of the home are where most electricity goes.

Here are the tips to save electricity at home (A/C)

  1. Change the filter every 2 or 3 months.

  2. Use high-quality filters.

  3. Maintain the unit every 6 months, in the fall and in the spring.

  4. Clean the air ducts every 3 years.

The first two steps are very easy to do, this will help you keep the home with less dust, as well as fewer illnesses and allergies. Having clean filters and high quality will make the air conditioning and heating unit work better.

The main function of the air conditioning and heating unit.

The unit heats or cools the air, and circulates it through the vents that are distributed throughout the rooms, normally the thermostat is in the middle of the house. The goal of doing this is for the air (cold or hot) to reach all corners of the house, as well as the thermostat. The thermostat is the one that tells the A / C or heating unit that the house is already at the desired temperature and that at the moment there is no longer any need for hot or cold air.

From what I just mentioned, a dirty and dusty filter will make the unit work longer and make more effort to circulate hot or cold air.

The last two steps can be done by a professional.

In the coming weeks, we will be writing about the other appliances that spend a lot of energy and how to make better use of them. Follow our blog or this other Power Blog.
