    Expert shares ways to cut power bills as Taiwan’s electricity use hits monthly high (2022/06/23)

    Electricity use soared to a monthly high in Taiwan on Thursday, topping the record set just the day before. According to Taipower, electricity consumption hit 39.78 million kilowatts at 1:40 in the afternoon. The company is asking people to cut back on power use from 2 to 10 p.m. An expert shows us how.

    Amid the sweltering summer heat, many people are turning to their air conditioners for relief. According to the Bureau of Energy, raising your AC temperature setting by just 1 degree Celsius can shave 6% off your previous electricity consumption. Also take note that changeable frequency units use just half the power of a fixed frequency air conditioner. To save even more on your electricity bill, try out these handy tricks.

    Place a bowl of ice cubes in front of an electric fan. This will provide only limited cooling, but you can amplify the effect by placing thermal insulation paper on the windows and drawing the shades. That’s sure to bring down the temperature fast.

    If you put out ice cubes and don’t turn on the AC or even a fan, of course you’re not using any electricity. You’d definitely save power that way. But many people are doing the ice cube trick but keeping their ACs on. What you can do is buy a piece of thermal insulation paper and stick it on your window. That will block out sunlight to some degree, and it will lower the temperature indoors by 4 degrees Celsius.

    This energy saving specialist pulls out her electricity bill. It cost just over NT$1,000 to power her home for two months. She says that in the summer season, the biggest power consumer is the AC, followed by electric water boilers and hair dryers, and finally, ovens.

    Electric water boilers are actually quite power-hungry appliances. So you can try this out – unplug your electric water boiler and get a kettle for boiling water over a stovetop. That can save you at least 40 kilowatt-hours a month on your bill.

    With power usage hitting fresh highs, Taipower has asked people to scale down their use of power-hungry appliances from 2 to 10 p.m., to protect the environment and save on utilities.

    週四全台用電量創六月新高 達人教省電撇步

    盛夏高溫飆上36度,不少民眾開冷氣消暑,週四中午用電量攀升至3978萬瓩,打破六月最高用電量紀錄,台電在粉絲專頁上提醒大家避免在下午兩點到晚上十點,使用耗電量大的電器,因此省電達人說,最耗電的三種電器包括冷氣、飲水機、烤箱,在夏天避免使用、或避開尖峰時間,可以省下不少電費。

    盛夏飆高溫,民眾在室內不得不開冷氣,經濟部能源局提醒,空調溫度每提高1度,電量能省6%。而有節能標章的冷氣,一個小時用電量是定頻冷氣的一半,室內要怎麼短時間降溫,還有這招。

    把冰塊放進塑膠碗裡,放在電風扇前吹,但省電達人說對大坪數空間影響不大,於是她在窗戶貼隔熱紙,拉下窗簾,讓室內溫度降低不少。

    “假如說你在放冰塊的當下,你冷氣也不開,電扇也不開,等於沒有用到電,那是絕對會省電,可是很多人是放冰塊繼續開冷氣。可以買一個隔熱紙,直接貼在窗戶上,多多少少擋了光以後,溫度大概降了4度左右”

    省電達人拿出電費單,兩個月加起來電費只要1千多,他說夏季最怕耗電殺手,冷氣位居第一,電保溫瓶和吹風機用電量也不容小覷,第三名則是烤箱。

    [[省電達人 楊賢英]]
    “電熱水瓶其實是相當耗電的電器,所以試試看,假如說你把電熱水瓶拿掉,你去買個燒水的水壺放到瓦斯爐上面燒,一個月至少能省到至少40度”

    面對用電量屢創新高,台電也因此在粉專提醒大家,每天下午兩點到十點,減少使用大型耗電家電,要全民一起愛地球,省荷包。
