Home appliances

Home appliances, such as refrigerator, washing machine, microwave, iron, mixer, coffee maker, etc., are goods that have a large contribution to the monthly electric energy bill you pay. Usually, people only focus on the cheaper price, called “the fix cost”, in determining the choice. In fact, there is another price to pay for home appliances, which is called “the variable cost” which depends on the energy consumed by your home appliances.

If you are diligent in caring for your home appliances, they could be a long age for some years. The total price you pay is the fix cost plus the variable cost. The variable cost will be even proportional greater to the wattage and the length of time. So, you must be wise to purchase and to use your home appliances.

So, what to do for your energy savings? There are two things that you should remember before buying your home appliances. Please, keep in mind them!

The first is to understand what you need: Customize what you need with the specification of home appliances that you will buy. If you need only a smaller size, then just buy a smaller size. Do not buy home appliances far exceed the specifications what you need. Excess of specification is a waste of your specifications.

The second is to buy the energy saving home appliances: What you should do here is to examine whether the home appliances is designed as energy efficient product or not. Typically, the energy efficient home appliances are usually given the energy-saving information or written on it “energy star”. So, focus to compare among other energy efficient appliances.
