As technological advances continue, our society has become dependent on various appliances to make our lives easier. As amazing as these appliances are, they need a lot of energy. That is why innovators have developed highly energy-efficient appliances.
At East-West Electric we want to keep you informed 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.
You can decrease your utility bill if you improve your lighting and use energy star appliances. 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?
These appliances are designed to utilize the least energy to complete their function. Others use alternative sources of energy such as solar energy and water. Energy-efficient appliances can really make the best out of a really small amount of energy to complete their tasks. 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?
Around 30% of your monthly utility bill comes from using electrical appliances. These appliances include:
- Air conditioners
- Water heaters
- Washing machines and dryers
Here are some of the benefits of energy-efficient appliances we think you’d be interested in knowing:
As mentioned above, these appliances spend the minimum amount of energy to perform their duties, therefore, they conserve energy.
When you reduce the energy used, your bill will be reduced as well. You will cut your spending at home by using energy-efficient appliances.
You also conserve energy that you can use 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.
By using these appliances you minimize the exploitation of natural resources such as gas and water, among others. 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. Just by using them, you’re contributing to the environment by living a more energy-conscious lifestyle.
