How to save Energy at your Home and Office

If lately, you’ve been opening the mailbox dreading the arrival of that electric bill, you might be overusing energy in your home or office. It’s necessary to have the power on if you work with computers or use electronics in your house–but did you know that there are hacks that can help you save energy and, in the process, save money?


Here are some tips for saving energy in your home and office, in turn lowering the number on that electric bill.

1- Install Compact Fluorescent Lightbulbs

Traditional light bulbs don’t last for very long, and you can go through hundreds of them every year. More modern fluorescent light bulbs can last ten times longer, so you don’t have to constantly buy new ones. What’s more, they do not require so much energy to light up your house.

2- Wash Clothes in Cold Water

Did you know that the majority of your washing machine’s electricity is spent on adjusting the water temperature? Some people estimate that at least 90% of the energy spent during a wash is used to keep the water warm. Unless you’re washing clothes that require warm water to keep them in good shape, setting your washer to work with cold water will save energy and money.

3- Unplug Appliances You’re Not Using

You only eat toast in the morning, so why is your toaster plugged in all day? You might not have noticed, but even when appliances such as the toaster or microwave are apparently off, they still take up energy. Take a look around your house and see if there is anything plugged in that doesn’t need to be.

4- Make Sure Your Filter Is Clean

We often forget about the filters that keep our homes free of contaminated air. While you are breathing clean air, your filter is building up layers of dust and other particles, making it work harder than it has to…and taking up energy. Remember to change your filter and you can save around 15% of your energy.


These life hacks might not make bills any more welcome, but they’ll help lower the number printed on them. We live in a world where we need to use electricity, but we shouldn’t have to overpay for the basics. Try these tips and save money.

The HEB Generator

The HEB generator

This is a floating waterwheel that can generate electricity when suspended over a river or other flowing water regardless of the depth.

The unique chevron shaped paddle treads give the barrel the ability to rotate about its horizontal axis in fast flowing water, entering the water smoothly and re-surfacing without lifting water.

The merit of this design is the significant reduction of any down force (Coanda effect) and the bow wave in front of the barrel, thus increasing the efficiency of the machine. This would be an ideal product for today’s demands for cheap re-newable energy and would be a cost effective product for the pico hydroelectric or micro hydroelectric energy market.

This design has many advantages over other methods of hydroelectric power production.

  • Quiet operation compared to conventional waterwheel.
  • Easy to transport and install.
  • Environmentally friendly due to shallow draft.
  • Cost effective to manufacture, low capital outlay per kilowatt. 24/7 operation unlike solar and wind.
  • Does not significantly interrupt river flow and can roll over debris.
  • Adjusts to water level.
  • Need more power? Install another HEB generator.
  • Many possible applications:-
    Remote area power supply for battery charging, lighting, irrigation, refrigeration, monitoring
  • Potential for grants and feed-in tariffs.
