We try not only to introduce new technologies to improve operational performance of the branches, but also to disseminate the culture of caring attitude to resources, responsible power consumption, and reutilization of resources among the younger generation. Here are some tips that will help you become more efficient consumers of in your household.
To save electrical energy:
- If possible, replace incandescent light bulbs with energy saving ones;
- Switch off all lighting and other devices when not in use;
- Do not leave the chargers for your cell phone, camera, or laptop in the socket when you are not charging your device. This is because the charger still consumes electricity, but does not uses it to charge the device, yet to heat up the charger itself, that can cause a risk of fire;
- When buying household electronics, pay attention to the energy efficiency class.
To save heat energy:
- Note that modern double-glazed windows are twice as effective at preventing heat energy loss;
- Ventilate the rooms often, completely opening the windows for a short period of time. Do not leave windows barely open for a long time, because the heat energy loss may increase.
To save water:
- Do not leave water taps on continuously while tooth brushing;
- Take a shower instead of a bath, and reduce the time spent in the shower, so you can save up to 50 litres per day or 18,000 litres per year;
- Check your bathroom and lavatory equipment for leaks, because a broken toilet tank may cause a water leakage of 2,000 litres per month, and a faulty water tap - about another 720 litres per month;
- Use your washing machine less often, but with a larger load, and you can save up to 20,000 litres per year.
To reduce the amount of non-utilized waste:
- Dispose of plastic bottles, paper and food waste in different bins, if you have waste sorting in your city;
- When shopping, pay attention to the the recycling sign (“Möbius band”) and try to buy such goods;
- Do not dispose of used batteries - each battery can infect about 20 m2 of soil. It is better to find a used batteries collection and recycling point in your city;
- Do not dispose of paper and cardboard. Because every 100 kg of waste paper can protect 1 tree, 100 kWh of electricity and 20 m3 of water.
