Avoid silent consumption of electronic products that are not being used. The mere fact that a device is plugged in without being used can increase electricity costs by 10%. It is important to sporadically replace the bulbs in the house, it is recommended to choose new technologies that use LEDs or are low consumption. This can translate to 70% to 80% less energy consumption than traditional incandescent bulbs. It is normal that when heating, ventilating or purifying a space it is not isolated, this means that the windows or doors are open, creating unnecessary steps and flows that hinder the work of intelligent products, and may not even achieve the desired objective and extend its use beyond the account.

Although the use of technology contributes to making society more connected, it does not necessarily go hand in hand with a wise use and exploitation of both energy and water, due to this, good practices regarding the use of technological products and your consumption habits can greatly help the environment in a simple and practical way.
