Electricity saving tips while working from home

light bulbs

Here are some simple tips that you can comfortably balance the need to use electrical appliances without wasting electricity while working from home:

  • Ensure all the doors, windows and vents are sealed securely when using air conditioning. Use a fan to cool the room so that the air conditioning temperature can be adjusted (for example, between 24 and 26 degrees Celsius) to save energy.
  • Clean air conditioner filters to maximise the cooling process.
  • Avoid washing clothes with hot water unless necessary and use a full load washing machine instead of half-load.
  • Reduce the use of clothes dryers. Take advantage of the hot weather for drying clothes naturally.
  • Unplug appliances when not in use. 
  • Reduce the time taken for bathing if using water heater for hot shower.
