Energy saving tips for fuel heating

  • Schedule annual maintenace of the system, keep it in good condition and replace filters regularly.
  • The usage of fuel additives results in economy, better combustion, cleaner system, improved performance and extension of the life of the installation. For more information see Dieselor OK.
  •  Close the curtains at dusk. This will reduce heat losses through the windows.
  • By placing shutters to block heat loss through the window and air leakages, you will reduce energy consumption by up to 20%.
  • During the day keep the windows with a southern exposure without curtains.
  • To avoid affecting the circulation of heat, do not put objects, curtains or furniture in front of the radiators and other heat sources. Clean them from dust regularly.
  • In winter open the windows regularly but for a short time and with wide open windows. That way you will keep the heat of the walls.
  • Put a thermostat to program and regulate the tempretature. This will save you about 10% per year.
  • Program the thermostat at a lower temperature when you are out of the house to save up to 20% of the energy.
  • When you sleep, reduce the temperature by 1-2 degrees.
  • Observe the 30-minute rule: reduce temperature 30 minutes before bedtime and increase it 30 minutes before wake up time.
  • Reduce the overall temperature by just 1 degree during the day and you will save 2% of the costs, by 2 degrees for 4% and at the same time you will achieve 6% less emissions.
  • If you lower the temperature with 5 degrees at night and with 10 degrees during the day while you are away, you will save 20%.
  • Feel the gap between the door and the threshold to stop heat losses.
  • If there are gaps between your windows and walls, fill them with silicone.
  • Consider replacement of the heating system, if it is over 20 years old. Modern systems can reduce fuel consumption by 15-25%.

Fuel saving tips for your car

  • Remove the unnecessary luggage. Each 45 kg less will lead to a 2% lower consumption.
  • Avoid bringing luggage on the roof. Even if the trunk on the roof is empty, better remove it.
  • Drive at a constant speed.
  • Drive at a higher gear that complies to your speed.
  • The lower speed saves more - if you are driving with 100 km/h instead of 120 km/h, consumption could fall by up to 15%.
  • Frequent gear changes, abrupt braking and acceleration spend between 20% and 33% more fuel.
  • Did you know that 50% of vehicles on the road are driving with lower tire pressure than recommended? Check tire pressure regularly. It can affect up to 3% of fuel consumption. Lower pressure and worn tires increase fuel it.
  • Did you know that clogged air filters can increase consumption by up to 10 percent, while one in four cars needs filter replacement?
  • Close the windows when you're on the highway. Violation of the aerodynamics can raise fuel consumption by up to 10%.
  • Use only the recommended grade of oil.
  • Charge only in petrol stations that you trust. Fuel with poor quality increases fuel consumption.

Energy saving tips for the home

  • Tighten well the taps. Did you know that a dripping tap can spend 5500 liters of water per year?
  • In kettles only warm as much water as you need.
  • Run the washing machine and the dishwasher only when they are full enough.
  • Dry clothes in the sun, not in the dryer.
  • Instead of ordinary light switches, install dimmers and dimmer bulbs, which can adjust the lighting. This can save up to 20% of the lighting costs.
  • Planting trees and bushes around your home can save you up to 15% in winter: evergreen trees on the north side to keep the wind and deciduous trees during the summer to keep the shade.
  • Switching entirely to LED lighting and removing incandescent bulbs will save up to 75% energy! Moreover, LED bulbs have a much longer life - as much as 10 times more!
  • Use energy-saving appliances. Certified appliances can save you hundreds of leva during their lifetime.
  • Hire a company to take care of the annual maintenance of the heating system.
  • Unplug appliances that you are not using.
  • Make sure the refrigerator door is tightly closed. Defrost and clean the refrigerator regularly.
  • Insulation of the attic - if you add a few centimeters insulation, you can reduce heating costs in winter by up to 20%. The recommended minimum thickness of insulation, which will save costs is 270 mm.
  • Insulate the garage.
  • In the basement seal small cracks with silicone, fill the holes with spray foam, and large holes with spray foam and foamboard.
  • Buy rechargeable batteries. Although the initial cost is higher, in a long-term perspective you will save much more.
  • Take a shower rather than a bath.
  • When you cook or boil on a stove, use a lid. This will reduce the required time for the preparation and you will use less energy. For long-term cooking, better use a pressure cooker.
  • If possible, do not open the oven during baking.
  • Use the residual heat. Turn off the oven 10 minutes before the dish is ready and this will save you up to 20%.
