The impact of cyclones and storms may not necessarily reduce the heat even when it rains. Instead, humidity increases, leading to more use of electrical appliances indoors, which can result in higher bills by the end of the month. Therefore, it's essential to be mindful of electricity usage not only to save on bills but also for environmental reasons.

Reducing the use of lights and fans is not the only way to save expenses; some techniques can help. Using CFL or LED lights can significantly reduce electricity consumption compared to filament bulbs. Additionally, it's important to avoid repeatedly turning the air conditioner on and off, as this consumes more units. Maintaining the AC temperature at around 24 degrees Celsius is optimal, and utilizing energy-saving modes if available on the thermostat can help save power.

There are also certain rules to follow regarding refrigerators. Keeping the fridge shut for an hour each day and avoiding putting warm food directly inside can help reduce electricity consumption. Regular maintenance of electrical appliances like refrigerators, TVs, and washing machines is necessary to prevent any mechanical faults that could lead to increased bills later on.

Old electrical appliances tend to consume more electricity compared to newer ones. So, it's wise to consider replacing malfunctioning older machines rather than repairing them.

Solar power is an environmentally friendly alternative that doesn't depend on the national grid. Solar panels can be installed on balconies, roofs, or any small space to harness solar energy.

During the day, open windows and doors to allow natural light and ventilation. Using heavy curtains or plants can help block direct sunlight and heat, thus regulating room temperature.
