[/ caption] If you hear the word "Power Save", what's in shadow Kompasianer? Does that mean we intermittently turn the existing electrical & electronic devices on? Although the action was not wrong (even still recommended), through this paper I try to give alternative thinking "saving electricity" ala I. At least through this paper we can save electricity without having to sacrifice the comfort of life. Previously sorry, I do not mean to patronize, just simply sharing. Ready?
Using Energy Saving Lamps
This is the easiest step to start a power-saving action. In my house there are seven point lights that all use energy saving lamps output of Dutch manufacturer with power between 11-14 watts. Now I am even slowly starting to switch to LED lights 5 and 7 watts (still from the same brand). The characteristics of energy-saving lamps usually contain the words "Energy Saver" on the packaging, writing there are two watt (as a comparison that the lamp has a power of watt but is able to produce a light equivalent to a larger watt lamp). Also in the packaging of energy-saving lamps usually there is a picture of one lamp (energy-saving lamp) which compared with the many lights (ordinary lights). Price of energy saving lamps – especially LED lights – is more expensive than ordinary lights. But bright and durable I think worth the price. For information, there are now many local manufacturers that produce energy-saving lamps with a quality that is almost as good as the Dutch brand – and of course with a relatively cheaper price. The amount of savings obtained (assuming we used to use 20 watt lights) ranges from 6-15 watts per lamp (depending on the wattage as well) multiplied by 7 point lights in my house. The calculations will produce a saving amount of about 40 s.d 100 watts per hour. If the lamp operates on average for 10 hours, how many watts can be saved in a day? What if then multiplied by 30 days? And make no mistake, not necessarily dim lights (not bright) consume less power than energy-saving lamps.
Selecting Electrical & Electronic Devices Based on Day Consumption, No Brand Based
Has Kompasianer noticed how much power is consumed every electrical & electronic devices at home? Televisions, air conditioners, DVD players, active speakers, refrigerators, water dispensers, computers, game consoles and fans are some of the tools that are currently available in every home. This power consumption information is usually on the back of the device. Since 2001 I have been accustomed to selecting electrical & electronic devices that consume the lowest power, ranging from light and television. This habit continues until now although sometimes it has to be compromised with the financial capacity of the family. For example, initially I have a 450 W powerless AC for 1/2 PK. When it is time to change, the main requirement is, "Watt must be smaller" And finally I chose AC with 390 W power for the same PK. This rule applies to all electronic devices. I still have a 14 inch flat screen television that I bought in 2001 and consumes 39W, while the average stuff usually consumes about 60 W. I am not fanatical of a particular brand, just as long as the device offer lower power consumption than other brands, then the brand will be considered.
Turning Off the Unnecessary Device
However, this action is still required. Sounds like a cliche, but it really has to be used. My family used to turn off room lights and other electronic appliances when there was no one in the room. Exception if we still have to go back and forth to the room every few minutes. Exceptions also apply to porch lights and bathrooms, both rooms must remain bright – for safety and comfort, so as not to say stingy hehehe … Just info, the electric home appliances that the average of the largest electricity suck is a hot water dispenser (350 watts). So when sleeping at night, I used to turn off the dispenser after previously preparing a small amount of hot water in a thermos for the baby's need to drink. And although saving electricity is not necessarily saving money, the use of these power-saving devices can make us optimize the PLN electrical power installed. At least if you want, with 1300 watt power I can just turn on the air conditioner, dispenser, and computer simultaneously in the condition of the refrigerator, lamp, fan, and TV stay on without any devices being turned off (I tried
