First before looking at the energy saving devices let’s see some bad energy wasting habits that you can avoid. When boiling water ensure you boil the required quantity of water, in most cases you will get many people boiling too much water which will go un used, but already you have spend energy boiling the excess water. Avoid boiling water at the wrong times and this relate to bathing times, here you get people boiling water quite early, leaving it to cool then boiling it again, you are boiling the same water with different energy level, assuming you used $20 quantity of energy to boil for the first round, boiling for the second round will cost you another $20 and in total you have just spend $40 cool money

The other energy wasting habit is by leaving electronic gadgets on when they are not in use, when will get people leaving their kitchen and bed room lights on while they are busy at the sitting room. Other than those you can waste energy by doing multitasking i.e. watching television and iron at the same time, these two activities requires maximum concentration and by watching and iron at the same time neither of them will get maximum attention hence you will take quite some time to finish ironing, it’s better to switch off your TV when ironing for effective and efficient use of energy.
