Where the Smart Get Energy Efficient

Over the last couple weeks, I’ve been talking about why energy efficiency matters- to Save the Internet!

Now… what can you do about becoming more energy efficient? In the next few weeks, Smartcool will be publishing a number of helpful handouts on energy efficiency measures for specific types of buildings.

Before we get into those details, here are some areas you can start attacking your energy bill:

Heating & Air Conditioning = 56% of residential electricity, 44% of commercial electricity

Seal and insulate your building envelope. Why would you want to pay to heat or cool the outdoors? Use weather stripping or caulking to seal up windows, doors and any other cracks in your building envelope. Check that your building is properly insulated to maintain your indoor temperature with less energy.

Adjust your temperature. In many cases, you can save a lot of energy simply by turning the thermostat down a couple degrees in the winter- or up a couple degrees in the summer.

ECO3-product-angle--compressedChoose energy efficient systems. One of the best ways you can heat and cool your building is with a heat pump. These tend to be the most energy efficient option on the market and work incredibly well for the majority of buildings that use a moderate amount of climate control (homes, small to mid-sized retail or office buildings, etc.).

Get smart. There are many smart thermostats on the market today, and you can make them even smarter by adding in one of Smartcool’s products. We work with the thermostat and the compressor in the air conditioning or heat pump system to cut energy consumption by about 15% kWh. Learn more about how our ECO3 and ESM work here.

unpluggedAppliances= 20% of residential and commercial electricity

Purchase energy efficient models. When you are making the decision to buy a new stove, a new toaster, or a new TV, choose the most energy efficient models.

Unplug unused equipment. If you are going on holiday, unplug everything! Your TV does not need to eat up your spare cash by staying plugged in with no one there to watch it. The rest of the time, unplug things when they are not in use, including phone and laptop chargers. Need help remembering to unplug?

Lighting = 10% of residential electricity, 20% of commercial electricity

Switch to CFL bulbs. These use 1/3 to 1/5 the amount of energy of a normal incandescent bulb and they last 8 to 15 times longer. So you use less energy and create less waste!cfl bulb

Install occupancy sensors. Instead of lighting up a space with no people, make sure you are only using energy when there is someone there to see it!

Switch lights off. There are plenty of timers available that can be easily added to lamps and other lighting to make sure you only leave them on for a certain period of time. Or you can put up reminders so that lights get turned off when people leave a room.

It's time we all got a lot smarter with our energy- now let's get going!
