More than (100) ideas for saving energy
Procedures for energy consumption rationalization at home.
Energy of all its kinds and forms becomes one of the basic
components of human life and its development, so it is necessary
to rationalize and raise the efficiency of use in all areas through the
adoption of rational use of energy as a daily behavior.
This will be undertaken through a set of procedures and measures
for rational use of energy in order to use energy optimally, without
affecting the performing and functioning of the person who uses
energy-consuming
appliances.
The General Directorate of Civil Defence plays an important role
in educating the citizen about the importance of energy
consumption rationalization and reduce wastage in various life
activities. And here comes the contribution from the General
Directorate of Civil Defense to provide awareness handbook for
citizen illustrates the importance of energy conservation,
containing nearly 150 ideas contributing in reducing energy
consumption, especially at the household level.
The main objective of the preparation of this booklet:
Providing new ideas for energy saving and rationalization of
domestic consumption and make them available for the citizen to
be reflected on his/her behaviors when dealing with the sources of
energy and thus will contribute in the rationalization of energy
consumption.
What is the definition of rationalization of energy
consumption:
Rationalization of consumption does not mean reducing
consumption, it means precisely: optimal consumption, which
means thoughtful adopting methods and measures 'rational' in the
process of consumption - and whatever kind - to achieve the best
benefits and results of the process of consumption, including
avoiding energy wastage and saving costs .
The objective of rationalization:
1. decreasing consumption bill.
2. Reducing wastage in energy consumption .
Precious ideas to save energy :
The grace of electricity is not appreciated by many.
The conventional energy cost increases dramatically and rapidly,
especially with oil prices where experts predict significant and
sustained increase in energy costs.
For example:
Family spends an average of 2500 to 3000 euros in European
countries and especially in Belgium as an annual rate of energy
(electricity, heating, mobility) with the knowledge that the bill is
permanently increasing.
Environmental pollution resulting from energy consumption:
Using energy sources resulted in negative results lead to
environment pollution when burned, especially traditional fuels
such as oil, gas and products of combustion of these materials
such as vapors, smoke and gases like (CO2), which in turn helps
the increasing phenomenon of environmental pollution and lead to
a rise in Earth temperature .
Scarce Energy
Fossil energy depleted quickly of the globe as a result of
continuous increased demand for use, so it is not possible to rely
on oil, coal and gas everlastingly ,therefore it is necessary to
reduce dependence on traditional energy sources and in stead
reliance on renewable energy sources (solar, wind, water….. etc).
Which are less polluting and sustainable sources.
Develop plans for energy conservation:
It is possible to minimize the daily consumption of energy without
affecting or changing the style of our daily live, but how can this be
accomplished?
The wise use of energy by following the correct behaviors makes
it possible to achieve this through proper handling of energy.
for happy life ..... use thermal insulation in the house.
Use thermal insulation in your house:
roofs and walls should be insulated to keep the heat out of the
house, since good insulation reduces energy consumption and
increase the sense of comfort inside the house. As well as the use
of reflective insulator glass for windows to reduce the entry of heat
into the building and painting the house from outside and inside
with light colors to reflect the sun's rays and get the best lighting.
It is also recommended to use curtains and reflective materials to
sunlight to reduce the entry of direct heat through the glass.
Definition of thermal insulation :
Thermal insulation: is the use of materials that have properties of
insulating that help reducing heat transfer from the outside to the
inside of the building in summer, and from the inside to the outside
in winter.
The heat that penetrates the building which is supposed to be
tempered by the use of air conditioner to maintain the appropriate
degree of heat is divided into three types:
-The heat that penetrates the walls and ceilings.
-The heat that penetrates the windows.
- Heat transmitted through natural ventilation openings.
The heat that penetrates the walls and ceilings in the days of
summer is estimated about 60-70% of the heat to be tempered by
air conditioner.
Thermal insulation is considered a modern and very practical
method to save the amount of energy consumed both in summer
and winter since it works on the stability of the temperature around
the natural rate in both seasons where it works to prevent heat
leakage outside the home, for example if we use the Boiler for four
hours (in an isolated house) and then we turned it off, the house
temperature will not leak rapidly to the outside and the house will
retains its heat for longer hours and this energy will not be lost as
in other non-isolated houses which requires keeping the Boiler
turned on for a longer period, leading to an increase in fuel or
electricity consumption.
The advantages of using thermal insulation:
1. The rationalization of electricity consumption, where scientific
experiments have shown that using thermal insulation in
residential buildings, governmental, commercial and industrial
facilities reduces using electrical power at rates up to 40%.
2. the building keeps the appropriate temperature for a long time
without the need to run air conditioners for long periods of time.
3. thermal insulation leads to the use of air conditioning devices
with small capacities, and thus reducing energy costs and
consumption of the devices used.
4. raise the level of comfort for users of the building.
5. reduces the use of air conditioners, which reduces the health
and psychological effects on humans due to the noise generated
by the operation of those devices.
6. Heat insulation helps protect against extreme cold and also
help to reduce heating expenses.
Precious ideas to save energy:
1. At night shut down the air passages that reduce energy loss by
25% by closing windows with ordinary glass facade and 60% by
closing windows with double glass facade.
2. Insulate heating pipes in places that are not occupied, such as
basements, the garage, the empty spaces inside the house, since
keeping these places without isolation leads to a waste of energy
and heat .
3. Isolate roofs of (storage areas) when they are not used by
insulating panels of a good thickness of wool ( minimum14 cm) or
by using steel insulator (minimum 12 cm )
4. During winter try to block air passages, especially the area
under doors and around the building structures, which considered
the airway for the cold air to enter from the outside, and therefore
this procedure leads to a reduction of heat loss in the home.
5. During summer try to make good use of air conditioners in the
house through the closure of ports that lead to the entry of heat
and sunlight by closing doors, windows and curtains, which would
reduce the internal temperature of the house, as well as reducing
the use of internal heat sources (such as lighting .......... etc).
6. In order to take advantage in a good way from the ventilation
system try to remove dust from the air ducts and replaced air filters
if necessary.
7-If the house is not equipped with a ventilation system, then open
the windows for some time, especially in the morning and evening
to replace the air.
Heating:
There are five phrases that can sum up some of the tips that help
in saving energy and reducing the value of the heating bill :
- Avoid heat loss through insulating the house .
- Maintain heating systems regularly.
- Do not use heating systems when there is no need for them.
- Remove all invalid air filters and replace them with new ones.
- Take advantage as much as possible from the sun's heat.
Fuel consumption during winter season :
the family consumes large quantities of fuel (gas, oil products,
electricity) in the heating process during the year and this imposes
additional burdens on the government and the citizen, which
requires following effective policy of rationalization.
10. In winter, take advantage of the sun to heat your home
naturally through opening sun facing windows and glass doors in
addition to opening the curtains in the morning.
11. Watch the thermometer and work to lower the room
temperature from 20 to19 Celsius degrees, which helps ensuring
adequate proper heating of the house, also try to wear warm
clothing inside the house.
12. try to use thermal regulators to ensure comfortable and
convenient temperature in all rooms, which in turn work to prevent
energy. waste.
13. Use a thermostat that works to separate the heating system
during the night and during absence from home for a long time.
14. During the night (try to protect yourself from the cold through
covering yourself with a blanket at bedtime), or during the day
when the house is empty and the temperature is 16-17 Celsius.
15. usually there are unused rooms in the house, therefore there is
no need to provide heating to maintain the temperature inside
these rooms like the rest rooms.
16 – tightly shut all the doors of the rooms and corridors where
there is no heating so as to reduce the spread of cold air to the
occupied rooms.
17. maintain gas boilers once every two years and maintain
heaters that run on petroleum products or wood annually.
18. remove and clean the dust and dirt from the heating radiators
and structures that spread heat through convection to be highly
effective.
19. If the age of the boiler is more than 15 or 20 years, surely it will
be invalid and less efficient therefore, it must be replaced.
If you want to build a house or to renew heating installations :

22. choosing the boiler with a light design, which ensures speed in
getting the heat and more comfortable to use, and more
importantly to be economic in consuming energy.
23. supply every heating device with both a programmed
thermostat and heat regulator.
24 - providing hot water either connected to or separated from the
boiler, depending on the distance between the boiler and the
kitchen or the bathroom to deliver hot water, but if the distance
between them is more than 8 meters it is recommended not to be
connected to the boiler.
Note: an increase of (1) degree in temperature will increase the
value of your bill in a rate of 7 to 8% so you should avoid that by
fixing temperature and controlling it.
New ways to rationalize energy consumption: 1. Bathing:
- Avoid hot water storage
The basic rule to minimize energy consumption is: to heat water
immediately before usage and not to be stored for periods, since
this will increase the amount of energy consumption.

2. Solar water heaters:
installation of the solar water heater is considered one of the most
important thermal applications of solar energy and the most costeffective, since it supplies hot water almost throughout the year
through the use of clean and free energy, which leads to reduced
energy bill.
25. the solar heater is considered one of the means that are
recommended for use, especially to get hot water, since it provides
60% of the hot water used in the home by the family, which
contributes greatly to the reduction of the energy bill.
26. If we assume for example that when you take a shower you
consumes between 30 to 40 liters of water and on the other hand
when you take a shower in the bathtub, you consumes between
100 to 130 liters of water, we conclude from this that we could take
three showers with the same quantity of water consumed in the
bathtub.
27. Use (bucket) when washing the car instead of using a water
hose.
28. It is possible that two children share the same bathroom, which
saves 50% of the amount of water consumed.
29. When washing with soap disconnect the hot water tap and do
not use it unless when necessary.
30. water saving showerheads considered economical and
inexpensive that reduce water flow and consumption from 40 to
50%, which is sold in most shops of building materials and manual
equipment.
31. In general the hot water has excess heat ,in most cases it is
between 40 to 45 degrees which is suitable for use and it is
recommended not to mix hot water with cold water because this
would waste energy.
32. It is recommended that the water that is stored in the heater or
Boiler is 55 ° C to avoid the emergence of bacteria or forming
limestone.
33. Choose a water heater that runs on gas .
34. You must make sure that the state of the joints and valves are
excellent: and if the hot water faucet is invalid, then this would
considered a source of energy waste.
35. If you've an electrical geyser, turn it off when you leave home
for more than 24 hours in order to save energy consumption.
36. you should remove any sediment from the heater or Boiler
regularly because these sediments (such as limestone) greatly
affect the performance of these devices.
37. regarding heating extensions, you should Insulate hot water
pipes which pass through unoccupied places such as ( basements
and ventilation vents).
38. When installing new devices you should choose the best
devices that fit with the house so as not to be too large nor too
small.
39. When the distance through which the hot water connected to
the p required place is more than 8 meters, the hot water delivery
system be will be weak , for example, for the kitchen.
Therefore it is recommended in this case to use an independent
water heater (electrical geyser).
Be careful of carbon monoxide (CO):
You should provide suitable ventilation for bathrooms and kitchens
equipped with gas heaters, especially if the place was not supplied
with suitable outlet such as chimney or that these ventilation
outlets do not play its role to the fullest, and there is a possibility of
the spread of carbon monoxide gas which is colorless, odorless,
tasteless, and may lead to death .
And here we must recognize the early symptoms of carbon
monoxide poisoning such as headache and vomiting, therefore it is
important to make sure of all the connections and examine them
and ensure safety fully.
Household electrical equipment:
washing machines:
Washers and Dryers are important household appliances that
consume a lot of power and could reduce the energy consumed by
following measures such as:
40. Wash with low-temperatures and do not use the dryer unless it
is necessary.
41. exploit sunlight to dry clothes.
The optimal use of energy in washing machines:
42. The washing machine(AAA) is considered the new generation
of economic electric household appliances, and is considered one
of the best groups in terms of energy efficiency and effectiveness
in the laundry.
43. The laundry squeezing is more effective on the program (1600
spin / min) and it is possible that there will be no need to use a
dryer in the laundry drying (since the dryer consumes the energy
equivalent of 2-3 times the energy consumed in the laundry).
44. operate the washing machine with fully loading so as not to be
used to wash just three or four pieces.
46. Some detergents are effective when used at low temperatures.
In most cases washing dirty clothing at a temperature of 20 instead
of 40 would save energy consumption.
47. Do not start washing process until filling it completely.
48 -it is preferred to select the economic washing program (E )
since it determines the amount of water and works on low
temperature and suitable for all types of laundry.
Dryer machine .
Rationalization measures:
49.hang your clothes under sun if possible.
50. squeezing clothes well before drying speed up the drying
process by using the washing program 1600 spin / min instead of
800 spin / min. One of the positive results of this program is to
reduce the amount of water coming out of the washing machine
during the drying period and reduce the time required for drying
clothes to third.
51. make use of sun rays in drying clothes instead of electric
dryers.
52. Avoid dryer overwork since it leads to reduced effectiveness of
drying and increases energy consumption.
53. As for conventional dryers, they should be used in well
ventilated and non heated places , since this would reduce the
drying time, but at the same time exposed to the risk of the
presence of mold and moisture.
Refrigerators and coolers:
Refrigerators and coolers are important household appliances that
consume a lot of power, but we could reduce the energy
consumed by following the procedures that will be mentioned later:
Note: (when buying any of the appliances used in the kitchen,
choose the most efficient appliances in order to reduce the
electricity bill)
Since the presence of refrigerators and coolers in homes are
common to all, but the way of dealing with these devices lead to
increased expenses without being aware of that, because we do
not know the proper ways to deal with them, leading to shoulder
extra costs and unnecessary expenses.
Rationalization measures:
54. When you buy your refrigerator compare the energy levels and
the annual consumption and do not buy Class B, which is a
consumer of energy, and make sure that your refrigerator is
working efficiently, since it considered one of the most energyconsuming appliances in your home.
55. The new generations of refrigerators and freezers are still more
efficient than others and these types are available in the market (A
+, A ++).
56. refrigerator marked with A + consumes 25% of the electric
energy monthly.
57. refrigerator marked with A ++ consumes 45% of the electric
energy monthly.
When you buy any of the coolers you have to compare them to
see the value of its annual consumption of electricity through
labels and you should not be attracted towards other products
such as type (B)
so it is always advisable when buying a refrigerator trying to figure
out the approximate costs of its own annual run.
Awareness Guidelines for the use of the refrigerator:
58. Do not open the refrigerator door too much times in the
summer, unless necessary.
59. Choose a cool place to put the refrigerator so that to be far
from the stove and is not exposed to direct sunlight.
60. Make sure that you shut the door tightly and do not try to open
the refrigerator door unnecessarily, and when you open the door
shut it quickly to ensure that no cool air seep out.
61. take into account the proper arrangement of food in the
refrigerator.
62. Put the food in the refrigerator in an orderly way and leave a
space to facilitate the movement of air around the food.
63. Avoid storing hot food in the refrigerator to reduce refrigerator
energy consumption since this would lead to higher air
temperature inside the refrigerator, which reduces the cooling
efficiency and increases energy consumption.
64. Do not use a very large refrigerator where the cooling will be to
useless in the empty space. It is recommended to use a
refrigerator with a capacity of 60 liters per person and a maximum
of 150 liters per family.
65. pay attention to conduct periodic cleaning for the refrigerator,
internally and externally
66. Avoid placing the refrigerator near the devices that emit heat
such as the cooker and the dishwasher, or in sunny places since
this would increase the consumption of electric power to maintain
the internal low temperature of the refrigerator .
67. The optimal internal temperature of the refrigerator for keeping
foods is from 4 to 5 Celsius.
68. There must be a sufficient air flow around the refrigerator
(ventilation) and there should be some distance between the
refrigerator and the wall.
69. It is recommended to remove dust regularly from behind the
refrigerator to ensure good air circulation and to sustain the
effectiveness of the fridge (be sure that the condenser that exists
on the back of the refrigerator is clean).
70. When there is no need to use the refrigerator for a long time,
for example, to leave home for a long period unplug the
refrigerator with the door slightly open to prevent the formation of
mold inside it.
71. When buying a refrigerator choose the most efficient
refrigerator with less consumption of electricity, and this would be
clear through the energy efficiency card fixed on the refrigerator.
72 - Disconnect the power supply from the freezer in case of
leaving the house for a long time with the door open.
Freezer:
Rationalization measures:
73. You must place the freezer in shaded areas (not exposed to
sun rays) if possible.
74. regarding the freezer it is preferable to be full and, if
necessary, fill the space with ice cubes bags to get the best
cooling mechanism.
75. chillers and freezers are used only for cooling and preserving
foods and if the foods that are saved in the freezer is still hot, this
will consume largest amount of electrical energy for cooling and
freezing foods.
76. avoid placing the freezer near heat sources and sunlight
because this will increase electricity consumption to maintain the
internal temperature low.
77. horizontal freezers consume energy accounted for 15% less
than the vertical freezers consumption.
78. You must make sure that all connections of cooling devices are
in a very good condition and if one of these connections got
damaged, the cooling process in this situation will increase the
amount of electrical energy consumption of 10% , therefore it is
advisable to replace the damaged ones.
79. remove ice accumulated inside the refrigerator periodically, as
the accumulation of ice inside the refrigerator approximately 2 mm
would increase the amount of consumption by 10%.
80. Avoid accumulation of ice in and around the freezer, and
remove it whenever thickness increased because it reduces the
cooling efficiency.
Cooking :
How can we save energy consumption during the cooking
process.
For saving energy while cooking, there is a basic rule in this matter
which is heating food and not heating up around it
81. If you use electricity for cooking , you can save energy by
cutting off the power source before finishing cooking in a few
minutes as the residual heat is sufficient for completing the
cooking process and preserve the food hot.
82 - When you use the stove oven for cooking, you should cover
the pots because this would speed up the maturation of the food
three times the duration when not covered.
83. Choose pots which diameter suits burner caps because this
would reduce the heat loss by 50%.
84. The use of a pressure cooker accelerates the cooking process
(and provides from 40% to 70% of the time).
85. Pots consisting of more than one layer allow cooking more
than one type at the same time by taking advantage of the steam
produced from the first layer, which helps in saving energy.
86. Take out the food from the refrigerator before a quarter of an
hour of the cooking process since this would reduce energy
consumption.
Cooker hood:
87. we can get rid of the fumes and odors caused by food cooking
through the cooker hood.
89. ventilation ducts that are installed in kitchens are useful and
good for air renewal during food cooking.
Microwave:
It is advised to use microwave devices because of their high
efficiency in electrical energy consumption and accomplishing the
required task in a short time.
90. Avoid placing the microwave near refrigerators and freezers
and if it is difficult to separate them, it is preferred to use an
insulator board between them if they were in one place.
91. When using the electric furnace ,you can switch it off before
finishing the cooking process since the residual heat in the oven is
sufficient to finish the cooking process and preserve the food hot.
92. by using the microwave , which is characterized by high speed
in the heating we must take advantage of the time and energy it
provides.
93. Microwave saves 75% of energy compared with conventional
furnaces and covers a rate of 3/4 of the daily cooking needs for a
family of four individuals.
94. Using the microwave for heating some liquids such as a cup of
milk or a cup of water is a fast and economical way of energy
consumption .
95. For example, cooking potatoes through a microwave will be
quick and economical when compared in terms of duration that we
need for cooking by conventional methods .
How can we save water consumption in the house:
Many ways for rationalization a greater amount of water have been
established, taking into consideration when developing these
methods, their applicability in homes with less financial cost to the
citizen and more efficient.
To help citizens in the choice of economic devices there are
some steps to be followed and they are:
96. Choose the device you want to buy .
97. there is a label shows the performance index, which allows the
buyer to choose the most economical device.
98. The classified devices "A" is the most efficient and "B", "C", "D"
are less efficient.
Dishwasher:
Dishwasher is considered one of the important household
appliances that consume a lot of power, but we can reduce the
energy consumed by carrying out the following measures:
99 - It is important to choose the model that suits your needs at
home and do not use the dishwasher that revolves when empty
and therefore does not save energy consumption.
100. Replace the old dishwasher with high-efficiency one.
101. The right choice to run the dishwasher cycle, for example,
choose a short operating cycle for washing dishes.
102. Choose the dishwasher that has the label AAA, which is
characterized by having high efficiency in washing and drying and
saves energy .
103. It is not necessary to use high temperatures when washing
dishes, because with current detergents, the 40 degrees Celsius is
sufficient in most cases for washing.
104. If possible select the economic washing program (E) which
determines the amount of water and runs on a reasonable
temperature.
105. wait until the dishwasher machine completes charging for a
wash cycle, but do not overload the machine and do not pile up the
dishes in it which makes the hygiene not in the desired shape,
forcing you to re-wash the dishes again, and this leads to the
consumption of more energy.
106. If you do not have enough bowls and plates for wash do not
use the dishwasher and instead wash them by the ordinary manual
method .
107. For best results when using the dishwasher you should get rid
of food remains after the completion of meals , such as ketchup
and rice using a spoon or a towel before putting the dishes in the
dishwasher and the result will be more efficient.
108. wash very large dishes by using cold water instead of using
the dishwasher.
109. When buying the dishwasher choose the most efficient one
which consumes less electricity.
Lighting systems:
Lighting devices is considered one of the most common electrical
devices that are used in large quantities in the residential and
commercial sectors. Lighting lamps are considered one of most
electrical appliances that consume electric power , but you can
reduce the consumed energy by the following.
Rationalization measures:
110. The use of lighting in places that are occupied only.
111. rely on natural lighting as much as possible.
112. The use of energy saving lighting.
113. do not turn lamps on during the day and instead take
advantage of the natural lighting as much as possible.
114. make sure to turn off the lights before leaving home.
115-replace incandescent light bulbs with energy-saving lamps.
116. clean the glass panels to take advantage of natural lighting.
The best types of lighting:
117. There is no doubt that the best lighting is the daylight that fit
the human eye sensitivity to light, the interior space in the house
should benefit from the sun rays during the day (natural lighting).
118. interior decorations at home plays an important role in the
lighting as the colorful interfaces multiply the light intensity three
times, especially in the sitting rooms.
Therefore, it is preferred during house paint to choose light colors
for the walls and ceiling and this would contribute in reducing of
the amount of energy consumed.
The use of colors in saving energy
The use of light-colored painting for houses contribute in energy
saving, where they reflect light thus contributing to more efficient
lighting inside rooms and reduce the severity of the incoming
sunlight, for example: 119. The red light gives the sensation of heat.
120. While the white or blue light gives the feeling of cold.
121. Turn off lights when you leave your room or in un occupied
rooms, and it is important to alert children to these things and warn
them of wasteful electricity. Also, you should take into account
matters of safety through providing proper lighting at stairs and
ladders.
122. Turn off the lamps whenever you came out of the room or if
you do not need it even for a few minutes.
123. Use fluorescent light bulbs (fluorescent) instead of ordinary
light bulbs, since they consume 25% of the energy consumed in
the ordinary light bulbs
124 . If you install the lighting tubes in the kitchen for example,
then use of a small diameter electronic tubes, where they are
considered more efficient .
125. Clean the lamps and transparent curtains to improve the
lighting, since curtains save energy and absorb 75% of the light, so
it is preferable to use transparent curtains and keep the lighting
lamps clean.
126. For external lighting it is preferred and to place special motion
sensors that work on lighting the lights automatically when one
goes near them and then turns off the lights automatically after a
minute to five minutes.
127. To ensure the continuity of lighting for a long period of time,
then you have to replace the traditional lamps with the economic
energy saving lamps as these lamps consume less than
conventional bulbs by 5-6 times and longer-lasting estimated about
12 times than conventional bulbs.
128. For light bulbs that need to be lit permanently, such as stairs
lights, you should replace the traditional energy-consuming lamps
ones with the energy-saving lamps.
129. use directed lighting instead of general lighting.
130. replace damaged lighting tubes since they lose the power of
brightness while they consume the same amount of electricity.
131. for studying and accurate (small) work it is preferable to use a
topical light , since there is no need to illuminate the entire room
while the nature of the work requires a limited light.
132. Use lights that are halogen tubes 300 or 500 watt , since they
are saving in consumption.
133. Choose light colors for walls and ceilings.
134. Work to rebuild or renew the house through the (roof and
windows) to provide natural lighting that attract big gains of natural
light and helps to save energy until the late hours of the day.
135. With regard to external lighting make sure to read the motion
detection and the wall clock and the sensor.
136 - TVs and VCRs, stereo and some microwave ovens consume
energy when they are not in use and this means that they remain
more than 20 hours a day consuming electricity ,so you should
turn them off by clicking on the play button (OFF / ON) located in
the machine itself.
137-Do not use remote controls to turn off such devices , since this
would give these devices the recession mode (sleep) without
turning them off.
138. Some devices, such as the computer has a self- powersaving consumption system because it is connected with the cutter
directly, but it is preferable to unplug such devices.
139. It is not necessary to leave chargers connected permanently
to the electricity, because they consume un useful energy, so
unplug chargers when you finished using them.
140 - Select the appropriate economic devices for use in the
functions you want to conduct.
141. wall digital watches are increasingly used , like other small
household appliances although they consume (20) watt per hour.
142. Computers are rarely used without being connected to other
devices (such as printers, scanners, microphone) so you should
turn them off when not in use and therefore the electrical
appliances that are not used frequently should not stay in the
standby mode as they continue to consume the electric power .
143. As for the devices that run on batteries, it is preferable to
replace them with rechargeable devices because they are
considered more economical in consumption.
Dear citizen ..
Lots of money is spent for providing energy, so try to maintain it
through the rationalization of consumption which is the
responsibility of all citizens, and saving energy is a religious
demand, and economy in the use of electricity benefits you first
and foremost, and finally your contribution in saving electricity is a
proof of your awareness and interest .
Phrases in energy conservation
Dear Citizen
- Energy is the nerve of life, Let us cooperate together to preserve
it.
