The household should switch to LED lighting as LED bulbs are energy- and cost-efficient, and durable (Hu et al., 2022). Reducing energy consumption can also be achieved by economizing on hot water. Hot water systems are significant energy consumers within households, and my household can make savings in this area with a solar or heat pump system. Furthermore, turning off power strips is crucial. Electronics and various appliances draw electricity when plugged in, even when in sleep mode. Finally, my household can utilize line drying as tumble drying consumes significant energy. Line drying is cost-effective and enhances energy conservation (Goldstein et al., 2020).
