Bien Magazine discusses ways ways that help you save on electricity bills

How to save electricity, Part 2

Many people who are often dizzy from seeing huge bills never choose to use proven ways to save electricity. This is probably due to the fact that they should be more carefully performing various, already known to them, nearly automatic actions. But a slightly different approach to everyday life, can effectively save energy.

Fridge and freezer

The ridge or freezer should not stand too close to a radiator or oven. They should also not be moved too close to the wall, to let the air freely circulate around the equipment. Regularly clean the back of the fridge, where the external heat exchanger is.

The second rule says that before opening the fridge you should know what you want to take out. Thinking while the door of the fridge is open is not very practical.

In addition - you need to regularly clean and defrost the fridge or freezer. If in turn, you want to defrost frozen food taken from the freezer, place it on a plate in the fridge. Defrosting products will further cool the interior of the fridge and the thermostat will be switched on less often.


Only turn the dishwasher on when it is full. It is a pity to use so much electricity and water to wash only some plates and two glasses.

Remember to always wash away the leftover food from the dishes and cutlery you put into the dishwasher. Then you can set up the ECO mode and everything will be cleaned well. Dried food residues require washing on more intensive programs, which inevitably consumes more power.

What else unnecessarily consumes power?

If you want to save on energy bills, do not leave the radio playing or the TV switched on when the room will be empty for a long time.

Unused chargers should be unplugged from the power supply. Do not charge a phone or tablet at night. These devices require a relatively short charge, once the battery is full they will unnecessarily consume power.

Change the vacuum cleaner bags regularly. A full bag weakens the suction of your vacuum cleaner and thus the device consumes more power.
