As technological advances continue, our society has become dependent on various appliances to make our lives easier. As great as these appliances are, they require a lot of energy, which has led researchers and innovators to develop and accelerate the market for highly energy-efficient appliances.
At East-West Electric we believe in informing you on responsible ways to save energy and money. We know that energy-efficient appliances are a great way for households to achieve just that, while also being more environmentally friendly. Here’s all you need to know.
WHAT IS THE IMPORTANCE OF ENERGY EFFICIENCY?
Improving the thermal characteristics of your home by installing energy-saving insulation, buying the latest technologies, and using the latest practices could easily save 20 to 30 percent of your energy bills.
Improving lighting and using energy star appliances will decrease your utility bill significantly. People all over the country could be saving hundreds of billions of dollars by using energy-efficient equipment and technologies.
HOW DO ENERGY EFFICIENT APPLIANCES WORK?
Energy-efficient appliances are designed to use as little energy as possible to complete their tasks. Others use alternative sources of energy such as solar energy and water. These appliances can maximize small amounts of energy to complete their work. If you’re thinking of buying any of these appliances, make sure to consider the energy-star rating system – in which more stars equals better energy efficiency.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ENERGY EFFICIENT APPLIANCES?
30% of the energy bill charges you get monthly come from the use of electrical appliances. These appliances include:
- Air conditioners
- Water heaters
- Washing machines and dryers
Here are some of the benefits of energy-efficient appliances:
As mentioned above, these appliances spend the minimum amount of energy to perform their duties, therefore, they conserve energy.
By reducing the energy used, energy bills get reduced as well. Using energy-efficient appliances will cut your spending at home and the energy spared can be used for other purposes.
The use of energy-efficient appliances enhances the conservation of energy to be used later on. This helps the state and the federal government to improve the cutting down of the resources used in energy generation and use them in other development needs.
Using energy-efficient appliances minimizes the exploitation of natural resources like natural gas, oil, coal, and water. Using energy efficiently helps the conservation of these resources, achieving sustainable development.
These are a few of the great benefits you can gain from saving energy, whether you want to save money or save the planet. By simply using energy-efficient appliances, you’re taking a small step towards living a more energy-conscious lifestyle and improve the world we live in.
