Management for your Home and Office
Our seasonably warm weather
reminds me of one caution- the electric bill. If you
work at home chances are you seeing an
ever-escalating electric bill from keeping your
equipment up and you cooled down. Not only do PCs,
printers and monitors use electricity, they give off
heat, which in makes you want to turn down the
thermostat. If you have multiple computers and don’t
practice good energy management, you’ll see electric
bills that resemble mortgage payments. Here are some
tips for starting an effective energy management
First, on the equipment side: ditch your old gear.
Newer PCs have energy saving devices, and Windows 98
and Windows 2000 have features that will save
energy. If a flat panel display is an option go with
and ditch your heavy weight CRT screen. Flat screen
models use about 1/3 of the electrical power of a
conventional monitor and don’t add any heat.
Also. Check the air conditioning vents and
insulation around your computer room. Shield your
windows when the sun passes by. We have our home
automation system close the blinds at certain times
of the day. It not only helps the electric bill but
it keeps the furniture and carpet from getting
bleached by the sun.
Don’t let high utility bills get you hot and
bothered. Use some ingenuity and technology to help
keep you and your home or office, cool.
