In the coming days, due to El Nino, the heat is expected to grow rapidly. Growing heat means that the use of more power consuming appliances such as fan, AC and fridge will increase. Generally, electricity bills increase by 2 to 3 times in the summer season compared to cold. Most people worry about electricity bills in the summer.

If it is added according to the price of 6.25 per unit, then the annual savings of 1500 rupees can be saved.
Light burning costs will be half
Before the heat starts, replace the house’s old bulb and tube light with CFL or LED. The 5-watt LED gives light equal to 20 watt CFL. Similarly, the illumination of CFL of 18 watt can be equal to 40W of tube light. This means that the cost of lighting your lights can be half by these measures.
Light burns in the night only, but the fan has to run the entire day in summer. This has a big impact on the electricity bill. A normal fan consumes 75 watts per hour. If the fan runs on an average 8 hours a day, then a fan’s expenditure may be close to Rs.1000 a year.
If the BEE-rated fan is used, then the cost will be between 700 to 750 rupees.
