I think we all know the situation, you leave your apartment, and you forgot to turn off the lights in the kitchen or to switch off the TV. That’s exact the topic we want to talk about, how to save on energy during your stay. For some people like myself it is almost a habit to leave lights on and then when I receive the bill I think ‘how is this possible’. We all want to pay less, right? That’s why we have some handy tips that can help you to pay less and how to safe energy during your stay.
TIPS for how to safe on energy during your stay!
- For all the people who don’t turn off the air-conditioning / radiator or lights 😉
You have to make sure that you turn off the lights and unplug all the unnecessary plugs from the socket. When u do this u can save up €20,- every month so that is worth it if u ask me!
Did u know that the air-conditioning and the radiator uses the most electricity and power in your apartment? So when u leave, just turn it off. It can save u over €25,- every month if u turn it on 3 hours a day.
- Who prefer to dry their clothes in the dryer
Yes I know, it is faster but certainly not more efficient and also it is better for your clothes to just dry outside / inside on their own. And not only it’s more efficient but it will save u some serious time to, because the average dry time in the dryer is 2 hours and outside more or less 45 minutes (depends on the clothes and weather).
And if ur not convinced already then this will change your mind because it will save u €1,20 every time you do your laundry, that’s a big difference, right?
- And yes, also look at how many windows u have if ur in a warm climate
Because when it’s daytime and the sun is shining threw the windows, it can be very hot. When u just cover the windows with ur blinds/curtains then u are safe from the sun and u don’t have to worry about turning the air-conditioning on all the time. Just Enjoy a cosy time in your apartment!
