How to save on light, the rules for saving
1) Natural light
Make the most of natural light: open the curtains, raise the blinds and turn off the lights when you leave the rooms

2) Light bulbs
Replace incandescent bulbs with low consumption ones: they last ten times longer and consume 1/5 less

3) Walls
Opt for chandeliers without ceiling lights: by not darkening the low-consumption bulbs they will make more light and you will need less, also paint the walls with light colors and use more mirrors

4) Class A
Choose energy-class appliances, do not lower the refrigerator temperature below 3 °, defrost the freezer regularly: a layer of ice acts as an insulator and increases energy consumption

5) Cold heat
Do not put the refrigerator near the oven or dishwasher and anything that produces heat. Space the fridge at least 10 cm from the wall

6) Washing machine
Avoid washing at temperatures above 60 ° c.

7) Dishwasher
Avoid washing cycles with high temperatures and also remove the largest residues of dishes from the dishes to avoid clogging of the filter with consequent reduction of washing effectiveness
8) Oven
Turn off the oven a few minutes before the end of cooking to take advantage of the residual heat

9) Thermostat
Adjust the thermostat of the air conditioners in order to maintain a modest temperature difference between inside and outside, no more than 5-6 degrees: the ideal temperature in summer is 26-27 ° both for energy saving and for human health . Use the “dehumidification” function.

10) Stand-by
Do not keep electronic equipment (TV, DVD players, computers, battery chargers, etc.) on stand-by when not in use; standby appliances continue to consume electricity and are the number one cause of house fires. Do not leave the battery chargers plugged in: the transformers continue their energy consumption inexorably.
