Energy Conservation:

Energy Conservation by: Maica Jewerl S. Elevado

Slide2:

Energy

Slide3:

- is a power derived from utilization of physical or chemical resources , especially to provide light and heat or to work machines

Slide4:

Why does energy is important ?? Energy is important because it helps us survive and frees us to pursue fuller lives in thousands of ways.  People use energy for home, work and travel. People also use energy indirectly in ways they may not think about — by purchasing goods that took energy to manufacture, package and ship; by making use of hospitals, schools and public safety services; or simply by using the Internet.

Slide5:

Here are the ways to conserve energy ……   Turn your refrigerator down. Refrigerators account for about 20% of Household electricity use. Use a thermometer to set your refrigerator temperature as close to 37 degrees and your freezer as close to 3 degrees as possible. Make sure that its energy saver switch is turned on. Also, check the gaskets around your refrigerator/freezer doors to make sure they are clean and sealed tightly.  

Slide6:

Set your  clothes washer  to the warm or cold water setting, not hot. Switching from hot to warm for two loads per week can save nearly 500 pounds of CO2 per year if you have an electric water heater, or 150 pounds for a gas heater . Turn down your  water heater  thermostat.

Slide7:

Make sure your  dishwasher  is full when you run it and use the energy saving setting, if available, to allow the dishes to air dry. You can also turn off the drying cycle manually. Not using heat in the drying cycle can save 20 percent of your dishwasher's total electricity use . Clean or replace  air filters  as recommended.

Slide8:

Whenever possible,  walk, bike, car pool, or use mass transit . Every gallon of gasoline you save avoids 22 pounds of CO2 emissions. If your car gets 25 miles per gallon, for example, and you reduce your annual driving from 12,000 to 10,000 miles, you'll save 1800 pounds of CO2.  Reduce the amount of waste you produce by buying minimally packaged goods, choosing reusable products over disposable ones, and recycling.

Slide9:

Buy energy-efficient  compact fluorescent bulbs  for your most-used lights. Although they cost more initially, they save money in the long run by using only 1/4 the energy of an ordinary incandescent bulb and lasting 8-12 times longer. They provide an equivalent amount of bright, attractive light. Use less hot water by installing  low-flow shower heads .

Slide10:

Whenever possible,  walk, bike, car pool, or use mass transit . Every gallon of gasoline you save avoids 22 pounds of CO2 emissions. If your car gets 25 miles per gallon, for example, and you reduce your annual driving from 12,000 to 10,000 miles, you'll save 1800 pounds of CO2. When you next buy a car, choose one that gets  good mileage . If your new car gets 40 miles per gallon instead of 25, and you drive 10,000 miles per year, you'll reduce your annual CO2 emissions by 3,300 pounds.

Slide11:

If your car has an air conditioner, make sure its coolant is recovered and recycled whenever you have it serviced. Modernize your  windows . Replacing all your ordinary windows with argon filled, double-glazed windows saves 2.4 tons of CO2 per year for homes with gas heat, 3.9 tons of oil heat, and 9.8 tons for electric heat.

Slide12:

Plant  shade trees  and paint your house a light color if you live in a warm climate, or a dark color if you live in a cold climate. Reductions in energy use resulting from shade trees and appropriate painting can save up to 2.4 tons of CO2 emissions per year. (Each tree also directly absorbs about 25 pounds of CO2 from the air annually.)
