How to Save Money on Electricity in Singapore

Save Money on Electricity

People in Singapore rely on electricity every day. But we know that the cost of electricity can seem expensive. We here at Senoko Energy care about our customers, so that is why we are providing some tips about how to save money on electricity in Singapore.  The first point is to make sure you pick the cheapest electricity retailer.

You should be sure to disengage the plugs of appliances, electronics and other items from the wall sockets. You should do this even if the switch is in the off position. This is due to the fact that even when an item that is turned off remains plugged into the socket, the item will still drain some energy. This type of energy drainage could cost you as much as one hundred dollars per year.

Another helpful tip is that you should consider washing your clothes in cold water instead of using the warm water cycle or hot water cycle on your washing machine. Ninety-percent of the energy that is utilized in regard to the functionality of a washing machine is derived from the process of heating up the water. Therefore, industry experts indicate that much energy can be saved when people wash their clothes in cold water instead. In addition, research shows that washing your clothing in cold water aids the enzymes in the detergent to clean your clothing better concerning the removal of dirt.

Then another great way to help you save money on your energy bill is when you hang your clothes to dry in the sun instead of using your clothes dryer. The sun is the brightest from 9 in the morning until 4 in the afternoon. This is the perfect time to dry your clothing. An added benefit of drying your clothes in the sun is the fact that the strong heat from the sun has the power to kill bacteria in the clothing. Thus, when you do not use your dryer as much, you should notice a reduction in your electric bill.
