Init ng left-overs for breakfast sa microwave. 2 outdoor lights na may light-sensor para tipid kapag medyo tinanghali ng gising.

    Actually, laking tipid ang nangyari sa amin mula noong binubunot ko sa outlet lahat ng electrical appliances na hindi ginagamit (kumakain pa kasi ng current maski off), nagpapa-laundry kami for Php24/kilo (average of 18kilos/mo so imagine how much water, detergents, electricity(for the water pump), ironing and the food and salary of the laundrywoman we can save)
    Bumaba na pala ang bill namin ngayon. Mainit kasi sa bahay kaya madalas wala sa bahay. :D

    btw, do you know that an a/c will consume more electricity when it is used less? if you keep the a/c on the whole 24 hours it will consume less power, proven na yan. that is because it takes less energy to keep a room cool continously than to cool it down when it gets hot. if you shut off the a/c then the room gets hot, then the a/c works overtime and at full power cooling the room down when you turn it on. if you keep it running 24 hours then the room stays cool, the a/c only turns on when the room temperature rises but the power consumption is minimal since it does not need to work so much. additionally you can set the thermostat to a higher setting when there is nobody in the room. the room still stays cool and does not get hot, you only need to set the thermostat lower when someone goes in the room.

    It's a myth that leaving the AC on while you're away at work uses less energy than turning it on when you get home. Think about it: Heat constantly penetrates your home, and that's what your AC removes. If you turn on the AC when you get home, then your AC has to remove the accumulated heat only once. If you leave it on during the day, your AC must repeatedly remove heat that enters your home.

    You might think that there's no difference, because your house should absorb the same amount of heat either way. Not true. With the AC off, at some point your house will be so hot that it can't absorb any more heat. But with the AC on, your house will always be cool enough to absorb more heat -- and you'll be paying to remove that heat, over and over again.

Just for comparison, lets say 1/4 of the time lang sumisindi yung compressor ng A/C, then roughly average of 280watts pa rin yung A/C.
    Based on your rough computation, so kung:

    3 stand fans = 180 watts MAX

    versus

    1 aircon (1.5 HP) = 280 watts (with auto temp compressor)

    So mukhang manageable na pala kung mag-e-aircon na lang kami, since
    100 watts lang pala ang difference. Malamig pa.

    Hehe, yup kayang makatipid sa kuryente kung temp controlled ang aircon. Puwede mong i-set lang sa say 28-29degC. Hindi siya parang mall sa lamig, pero hindi na mainit. Caution lang, kung medyo malaki yung kuwarto/malaki heat load/mababa temp setting (ex. 22degC or lower) baka lampas 3/4 of the time na sindi yung compressor. Puwede ring umabot ka na ng 700 watts difference.
