Tips for saving energy

Energy can be saved even through small measures in the household. To do this, it is first important to be aware of where and when electricity is being used. A consistent switch to modern lighting technology reduces the energy requirement for lighting both indoors and outdoors.

It's time to say goodbye to the last light bulbs. Replacing with efficient LED light sources is an effective energy saving measure that can be done quickly and easily. There are now ultra-efficient lamps on the market that offer great savings potential compared to first-generation LED lamps.

When buying lamps, you should pay attention to the energy label . It gives a clear overview of how efficient a light source is. Higher acquisition costs can quickly be amortized through lower energy consumption.

The use of timers or smart sockets is advisable. Energy can be saved by turning off or dimming decorative lighting such as fairy lights or light nets at certain times. It is not necessary to illuminate bushes and trees all night long. Insects and nocturnal animals are also not disturbed by artificial light.

Sensors and motion detectors are effective tools. Turning off the lights when leaving a room can be done easily. Presence sensors automate this process, for example at the entrance to the house, in the hallway, stairwell, utility room or in the garage.

Natural daylight should be used as much as possible. Curtains and blinds should be opened during the day instead of turning on artificial lighting.

With new smart home lighting systems , it is possible to conveniently control light sources using a smartphone or voice control. Not only does this create special lighting moods, but smart homes often also offer schedules and automation to optimize energy consumption.
