1. Let the lamps work at night.
It is more than obvious that the night electricity rate is profitable, but people rarely notice exactly how much money can be saved when they make the most of the time between 22:00 and 06:00 in winter or 23:00 and 7:00 in summer. In addition to the lower bill, as the evening is colder, your fans will run lighter, which will further contribute to the lower bill.
2. Switch to LED lighting.
Despite the higher initial investment, LED systems can significantly reduce your monthly bill and recoup the investment in question. You can find a detailed description of how long this process takes in our article "Is it worth buying LED lighting?", And all the systems we offer can be found here.
3. Use EC fans.
EU fans are more expensive initial investment, but on average, they will recover within 1 year of savings. They are digital fans that, unlike AC fans, use less current when switched on at a lower stage. For AC fans, the watts used are constant regardless of the motor speed, while for EC fans, if set to 20%, they will use just as much energy. In addition, they are quieter and hum much less. From growshop-bg.com we recommend Prima Klima as a trusted brand and their selection of EC and AC fans can be found here. If you are not sure which fans are what you can find all the details on their website.
4. Use a fan controller.
If you let your fans constantly circulate at full power, they will significantly increase the amount of watts you use. Installing a controller can significantly reduce your bill. Here you can find each different type of controller to automate your system and save on monthly costs.
5. Remove anything that raises the room temperature such as ballasts or solution coolers.
If you use a controller as recommended in point 3, you already know that the speed of the fans depends on the temperature in the room. If the temperature inside is low and you want to raise it, it is advisable to use already available "radiators". However, if it is summer and it is warmer inside than recommended, it is good to remove everything that can further contribute to the rise in temperature, which in turn will reduce the cost of fans.
