Seminar: How to save energy?

Share it:
This week Golden Rose organized her third and last seminar in partnership with ‘La ligue des familles'. The seminar titled ‘How to save energy?' was presented by Jonas Moerman from the association Ecoconso. Moerman gave tips on how to reduce the costs of energy.

The information session began with a question from Moerman: Which devices consume more energy – heating equipment that is only used in the winter or electronic devices used on daily basis? The participants answered unanimously ‘electronic devices’. However Moerman informed that heaters only used during the winter consume more electricity than electronic devices do during a whole year.

Heating takes 70% of our yearly energy consumption. The expert advised to keep the heating temperature at 18-20°C. To avoid the loss of warmth Moerman recommended to place reflecting radiator foils behind the radiators. Before going to sleep, the temperature should be reduced to 16°C.  Setting off the heating device causes the room to cool down and warming up the room again would cost more energy.

Unplugging devices is another way of saving energy. Hundreds of euros can be saved by reducing the use of the clothes dryer, by switching to LED screens, by ironing once a week etc.

After the seminar a question and answer session was held. Moerman was asked which energy company is the most advantageous one. The speaker announced that the website determines the company most fit for each client. Another question was posed about the difference between gas and electricity. Moerman answered that gas is a cheaper remedy for heating.
