*RAE  is the supervisory authority in the field of energy supply, any consumer may address RAE on issues related to the energy product procurement process, its rights and obligations.

1Prefer to buy a laptop for your next computer. They consume significantly less power and space while not losing files that you have not yet saved in a power failure.

2Even when a laptop is off, its power adapter still consumes power. So plug it in with a power outlet and switch it off, or unplug it when not in use, unless you want to charge its battery.

3Remove the chargers from the wall socket when the appliance is fully charged, as they continue to consume power.

4If you are about to leave your computer for more than 20 minutes, turn off the screen. If you are going to be missing for more than two hours, turn off the entire computer or put it to sleep.

5Prefer to cool using a fan (especially ceiling). Even when using an air conditioner, using the ceiling fan will give you the same comfort by setting the air conditioner thermostat to a higher temperature.

6For outdoor lighting use luminaires with solar lamps, solar panels and motion detectors to turn them on. This way you will have autonomous lighting at no cost.

7Adjusting the water heater or boiler thermostat by a few degrees Celsius ensures a significant savings without noticeable impact on hot water.

8Prefer to heat the water in the kettle instead of using a pot. It warms up faster and more economically. In fact, try to put only the required amount of water.

9Low consumption lamps (CFLs) use only 20% of the energy of a standard lamp. Replacing old lamps is an easy way to save energy.

10By using LED lamps, up to 90% of the electricity consumed by a common incandescent lamp can be saved.

11The use of modern air conditioning units with our inverter technology ensures up to 3 times less electricity consumption.

12An A + energy-efficient refrigerator suits you. Save up to 41% on energy.

13Defrost your refrigerator regularly if it does not automatically. 5mm thick ice increases consumption by 30%.

14Prefer a solar water heater. The savings on electricity needed for hot water reach 60% and can save up to 9% on the total electricity bill.

15Turn off the oven or oven about 20 minutes before cooking is completed and allow the remaining heat to do the rest.

16Keep the oven door closed during cooking. Losses in temperature can reach as high as 25 degrees each time you open it.

17Try to fill the laundry bin thoroughly so you can make the most of the energy spent on each wash. If you need to put on less laundry, adjust for less water as well.

18Prefer to let the dishes dry by themselves instead of using the washer dryer.

19Make sure utensils are properly applied to the stove. You waste 20-30% more heat and current when the bottom of the pan is 1-2cm smaller than the stove. Using the oven saves 30-60% power and 80% time.

20For heating small amounts of food, you may prefer a microwave oven because it saves electricity and time.

21Adjust the radiator thermostat so that the temperature in the service compartment is 7 ° C and the freezer at –18 ° C. This saves up to 15% power.

22The refrigerator consumes a lot of energy because it operates 24 hours a day. The energy label of all modern electrical appliances gives us information on its energy efficiency. Choose a device with low energy consumption.

23According to the IEA, electricity is wasted in the standby phase of electricity at an international level equal to 5% to 15% of household electricity consumption.

24Prefer for your heating and cooling needs heat pumps with high COP index for heating and EER for cooling.

25Your boiler is serviced at least at the beginning of each season, so the efficiency will remain high.

26Maintain your air conditioners by cleaning and disinfecting the relevant filters.

27Replace or convert conventional pump motors with corresponding inverters.

28Power factor correction (co).

29Eliminate harmonic components in your plant's distribution networks.

30Preventive maintenance of your machinery based on manufacturer's instructions.
