*Article written by Christopher EL Khouri, Mechanical Engineer at DC PRO Engineering, a recognized world leader in the fields of District Energy, and regional pioneer in sustainable Green Building MEP Design

With the increase of the temperatures in the GCC during the summer season, higher electric demand load will put pressure on air conditioning equipment in homes and offices around the city. DC PRO Engineering's Christopher El Khouri provides six tips to reduce unnecessary energy consumption and keep bills down during the summer - and keep the environment happy. 
 
  • Reduce electrical consumption in peak load hours (14:30-15:30). Daily summer temperatures are highest between 14.30 and 15.30. Consequently, air conditioning equipment consumes much more power than usual during this peak, so any additional activity that emits heat, such as cooking, will only result in more work for the air conditioner.
  • Install internal and external window filming. External window film prevents the heat of the sun from penetrating the window, while internal window film prevents heat transferring to the space. Studies have shown that filming your windows results in a 60% heat reduction.
  • Proper use of the thermostat. Many people in the GCC tend to misuse a thermostat and set it on ‘FAN ON' at all times. Instead, set the thermostat on AUTO with a temperature of 22-23oC to achieve thermal comfort and save up to 40% in energy.
  • Invest in solar gazebos. For those who own villas and are willing to go the extra mile, solar gazebos placed on roofs can help reduce electricity bills by up to 100%.
  • Install a Water Aerator. Water aerators add air to the flow of water, providing comfortable water pressure with less flow. This reduces unnecessary water consumption and water pump energy, resulting in savings in water and electric bills.
  • Save hot water for the evening. During the summer, water supplied by the municipality tends to be hot anyway, so showering in the evening will help save energy as it doesn't require the use of the electric water heater. Saving activities that require hot water until after-hours, where possible, is a smart move and will save considerable money on bills.
