The rising cost of living these days demands that we look for ways to consume less energy to save up on electric bills. Global warming, a concern on a much bigger scale, implores us to use energy-efficient technology to lessen our carbon footprint. There are several things in our lifestyles that we can change to save energy – and all of them are quite simple and easy to implement.
One tried and tested way to save energy is to unplug all electronic device when not in use. Turning them off but keeping them plugged consumes “phantom load” which means these devices still consume energy even when you’re not using them. Another energy-saving tactic is to change your light bulbs with more energy-efficient kinds like LED. They may cost more to buy, but they last at least ten times longer and consume about 75% less energy compared to usual light bulbs. Simple habits like making sure your refrigerator door can save you loads of energy. Placing your refrigerator and air conditioner in strategic areas in the room – away from heat-generating devices at all costs – can also save your appliances from working too hard and therefore consuming more electricity than normal.
Upgrading your old appliances to energy-efficient ones is also a fantastic way to save energy. Old appliances always consume a lot of energy compared to their newer counterparts. If you’re looking to upgrade to save on energy, reduce electricity consumption, and save the environment, look no further than Sharp Philippines’ lineup of J-Tech Inverter Refrigerator and Split-Type Air Conditioner.
With its 32-step Smart Inverter Technology, J-Tech Inverter Refrigerator provides energy savings by up to 40 percent, with a precise temperature control to help protect stored food and preserve it for longer periods.

The Sharp J-Tech Inverter Air Conditioner, on the other hand, provides convenient and energyefficient operation with up to 60 percent in energy savings. J-Tech Inverter temperature control technology maintains room temperature and saves energy by switching compressor operation between high and low modes once the room achieves optimal temperature levels.
