Switch to CFL’s
These bulbs use only fraction of energy as compared to the regular incandescent bulbs and they last longer than the regular lights. Regardless of what lighting you use, always make sure that you turn it off when not in use.
Set the right cooling and heating temperatures
Make sure that your freezer and refrigerator are not working more than they are required. Set the right temperature to save energy costs.
Don’t leave your electric appliances in standby mode
It is no use because they use the same amount of electricity when not turned off completely.
