  • Buy only efficient appliances . To do this, you just have to see the energy label that marks a scale from A to G, the first being the most convenient.
  • Use LED bulbs . They use 80% less energy and their useful life is between 8 and 10 times longer than that of traditional ones, although the purchase price is somewhat higher.
  • Schedule heating and air conditioning . If we have to choose an air appliance, it is better that it has a thermostat so that it only turns on when the house reaches a certain temperature.
