The next few months are going to be really tough from an energy and economic point of view. Energy bills (whether it be gas, electricity or light) will go up exponentially and thus we will find ourselves having to ration their daily use so as not to run into very high and unsustainable expenditures in terms of energy.
Today we suggest some tips and tricks to save as much energy bills as possible in a smart and conscious way. In fact, dozens of movements are enough to save up to 20% on energy billsSometimes, in fact, even the simplest adjustments, which we do not even notice in everyday life, can bring with them significant savings,
One of the devices that consume the most in daily life is undoubtedly refrigeratorwhich due to its purpose (refreshing all the foods we buy) must necessarily be kept permanently, throughout the day, in order to avoid food spoilage.
The first precaution that we advise you to pay attention to is to take into account the energy efficiency class: it is one of the most used devices and the highest energy consumption, It is important that it be of energy class A +. In fact, a refrigerator equipped with this class allows savings of up to 60% in energy compared to devices with lower energy classes.
In the event that you have an old refrigerator in the house, our advice is Replace it with a recently manufactured deviceresulting in a significant reduction in energy consumption.
In fact, the current refrigerator of energy class A ++ consumes from 128 to 205 kWh / year, compared to the corresponding refrigerators in the 1990s, which reached a peak of 500 kWh / year. The high energy class guarantees savings of up to €100 per year on our energy bills.
Another criterion to observe when buying a new refrigerator is also choosing the right size: in fact there is no point in buying a large refrigerator if the family unit consists of a few items, since a large appliance will require longer cooling. time, thus increasing energy consumption and bill costs.
Where the refrigerator is located inside the home is also important: it should in fact be placed away from heat sources (such as a kitchen stove, radiator, electric oven), as the heat generated by it will increase the energy consumption to adequately cool the refrigerator itself. These small, albeit seemingly trivial, precautions can lead to a 10% reduction in energy consumption.
