A week after the EU Sustainable Energy Week 2014, which took place from 23 to 27 June 2014, the Go Green Subcommittee is eager to share with you some useful tips to improve your daily energy efficiency.
Here are our concise but handy tips:
- Do not overstuff your fridge; it’s a widespread misconception that an overstuffed fridge is an energy efficient fridge, but ¾ full is the maximum and saves the most energy.
- Do not leave the doors of your fridge open and do not put hot meals inside.
- Switch off your appliances when you are not using them instead of leaving them on standby.
- Use an old-fashioned drying rack or clothesline to save the energy instead of putting your clothes in the drying machine. It’s not only more energy efficient way of drying your clothes, it also doesn’t take a toll on the health of your clothes.
