What do you think if we talk about luxury items and products? I think it’s a great idea and also a necessary one.
Definition of luxury item: products and consumer goods that are not necessary for health or well-being. In this wide mixed bag we can include jewelry, luxury cars, precious metals such as gold, diamonds, exotic trips, yachts, sumptuous houses … And electricity.
Yes, you have read perfectly. Electricity is one of those cases, less and less strange, that have gone from being a basic good to a true luxury product. As an example, since the last crisis began in 2008, the cost of this energy has increased by 66%, while the increase in the CPI in the same period has been only 14%. Indeed, electricity has become a luxury product, accounting for 20% of the monthly expenditure of homes and families in our country.
We could spend days and weeks trying to find explanations and culprits for such a huge and disproportionate rise in the price of electricity, but the only thing we would achieve would be a great headache and frustrate ourselves for being so clear that equality only exists in that wonderful country of Alice .
The best solution, without a doubt, is imagination. Putting our brain and vitality to work to find formulas, resources and means with the sole objective of making electricity cheaper for us or we can consume less kilowatts each month.
One of the changes in which we can appreciate it the most is in the kitchen. By changing the glass ceramic or induction hob for a gas one, we will need less gas consumption than electricity when cooking.
Another good option is that when we use the heat pumps and air conditioning we do it properly; They must be used at a temperature that does not need a large amount of energy for them to work, whether it is for heat or cold; Between 21 and 22 degrees is the recommended temperature to enjoy a sensation neither hot nor cold. Talk to your electricity provider and find out about the hourly discrimination rates they have.
You can benefit from these tips and many others such as not heating or cooling the house when it is empty, wash with cold water, unplug all electrical appliances whenever possible, insulate your house … All of them are recommendations to save on electricity, but In my opinion, how you are going to save more money is by using and installing LED lamps. With this type of lamps you will get a big drop in your electricity bill, in addition to the fact that there is a wide variety of models that will fit perfectly with the decoration of your home: from bulbs for ceiling lamps, to LED floor lamps , through fluorescent tubes and small mirror lamps or for the interior of the refrigerator. So that you have it really clear and do not forget, I am going to detail the benefits you can obtain with LED lighting:
Thanks to its low luminaire consumption, you will achieve significant energy savings.
Produces little heat emission.
Its durability is greater than traditional bulbs.
These are very ecological lamps that produce little light pollution.
Its light is bright and sharp.
They take very well the blows and are not easy to break.
As you can see, all are advantages with LED lighting, but the main advantage is the great savings you will get on your electricity bill. Each month you will have more money for your home and your family, even to make yourself a special gift, such as the decorative floor lamps that I just purchased for my living room, made of imitation bronze wrought iron. I love them! And I plan to enjoy them for many years; I’m going to read hundreds of books under its bright light.
