TO THAW IS A FLAW!
Keep your frozen stuff out in room temperature sometime before using. Refrain from thawing using your microwave.
PEAK HOUR=LESS POWER!
Curb your consumption just during the peak hours of the day. Not asking for much are we?
HANG OUT.CHILL OUT!
Cool down a whole room by hanging a wet sheet in front of an open window. The breeze blowing in will quickly bring down the room’s temperature. Save energy in the process.
COLD FEET IS GOOD!
Cool down the whole body without having to resort to an AC, by dunking (clean!) feet in cold water before hitting the hay.
Hot air rises, so set up your bed, or cot as close to the ground as possible to beat the heat.
THE SHADIER, THE BETTER!
Look for natural shades, build artificial shades, keep your air conditioner shaded. Being shady is cool. Literally.
LESS FROST=LESS COST!
Defrost your chillers. They make it more cumbersome for cooling to take place.
SAVE YOURSELF FROM SCREENSAVERS!
Screen savers don’t save anything. Screen savers are as obsolete as Kodak films.
TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR CHARGER!
Don’t let charges be brought against you for charging off right after charging your phone. Remember that you have been charged to remove your charger after charging up your phone. Else we are pressing charges!
FLAT IS BETTER THAN CURVES!
Use flat-bottomed pans that make full contact with cooking oil.
FOCUS! FOCUS! FOCUS!
Wherever possible, use task lighting to focus the light only where you need it.
24.YOUR LUCKY NUMBER!
24 degrees Celsius. Be patient. It’s worth it.
BE A SUPERSTAR!
Don’t settle for anything less than 5 stars on the energy rating scale. Stand out.
DO IT IN THE DARK!
No further explanation!
BLOWIN’ IN THE WIND!
Like Bob Dylan said, “…the answer my friend is blowing in the wind…” Air dry your clothes, put them out, stop using dryers.
GO FULL ON!
Wash only full loads of dishes and clothes. It’s obvious why.
BE A POWER STRIPPER!
Power strips (spike busters)are in. One switch turned off = multiple appliances off. Less work for you, more savings for you. Strip on!
Use light-colored, loose-weave curtains. Let the daylight in and use lighter colors on your walls. They reflect daylight and most importantly reflect your bright nature.
MONITOR UR MONITORS!
Monitors consume more energy than any other component of your computer. Keep brightness low, screen time-out low, and turn them off when you’re not really using them.
TO DUST IS MUST!
Dust your tubes, keep ‘em clean. Dust on the tubes absorbs 50% of the light. So feel like God, let there be more light.
The sleep mode is there for a reason. Let your gadgets sleep for a while when you’re not using them. Save up to 40%.
THAT IS SOOOO HOT!
Use water heaters with thermostats. Set maximum as 50 degrees. We are only human; we can only take so much.
Save up to 50% more energy than conventional ovens, with better results. What are you waiting for?
Keeping the refrigerator 3 degrees colder than necessary increases your bill by 25%. Pointless isn’t it?
EMBRACE THE NEW!
T5, CFL and LED lights consume 60% less energy than incandescent bulbs. Don’t be a fogey; get smarter, everybody else is.
BE A FAN OF FANS:
Use AC’s sparingly, give fans a chance. Save money, and also save the environment.
BE A HUGE TURN OFF!
Don’t just turn off using the remote. Turn the switch off from your board; prevent power from being consumed for standby.
