Appliance Use

The wise use of appliances can have a positive effect on your energy consumption. Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do I turn off lights and ceiling fans when a room is not in use, or do I leave them on?
  • Does the television set entertain the entire family, or does it entertain an empty room?
  • Do I leave my computer and peripherals on for extended periods of time when not in use?

These are prime considerations that affect the amount of electricity you use to maintain your lifestyle.

The new big-screen TVs and plasma TVs are great for watching your favorite movies or sports network. But they can use as much as 850 kilowatt-hours per year.
