The right choice of electronic products can make the difference in saving energy. The refrigerator, for example, is the appliance that consumes the most, but can be much more efficient if a model A or B is selected (see here the differences and how to identify them ). Other effective measures are open doors as little as possible, defrost the freezer regularly and maintain equipment at an average temperature of six degrees Celsius.
Regarding the kitchen or stove, a simple way to reduce consumption is to use diffusers in the stove, which in addition to helping more even cooking can reduce up to 20 percent using gas. In Argentina, the company TNR sells this product created by 100 percent recycled and recyclable aluminum.
In addition to the diffusers, there are daily habits to consider such as: not preheat the oven (modern devices usually do not require this step);extinguish the fire five or ten minutes before and finish cooking with the residual heat; and reheat in microwave small plates (as Energy Star , the use of this device demand by up to 80 percent less energy than the kitchen).
