Other areas

  • Air conditioning – many of the same principles we covered in the refrigeration section apply here.
  • Choose equipment carefully – as with any other electrical equipment, more efficient computers and screens will pay back dividends over time.
  • Use timers and energy savers – automatically switching off, or using an energy saver that powers down all connected items at once, will help you cut running costs.
  • Keep an eye on your usage – monitoring your usage over the months can help you see what’s making a difference.
