We are efficient

Correctly choosing and using our appliances

It is just as important to use more efficient appliances and units (A+, A++ or A+++ energy label), as it is to use them correctly. More specifically, use the appliances with the right settings:

  • Run washing machines when they are full to at least 80% of the maximum load and use cold water whenever possible
  • Adjust the refrigerator temperature to the current season and do not leave the doors open
  • Use suitable cookware for the size of the stove-top burner and cook with the cover on
  • Run the dishwasher when it is full or use the half load mode
  • Unplug devices you do not often use, avoiding standby mode
  • etc.

To see your consumption and have greater control over it, sensors that communicate directly with smartphones are recommended, this being the most suitable solution.

At the industrial level, the best solution for possible inefficiencies in the electrical system and overconsumption in your establishment is measurement using power analyzers in the most critical parts of the electrical installation. By adding an energy manager to this power analyzer system, you can centralise consumption control for the future detection of overcharging in electrical bills (See real application of energy efficiency improvement).

Turn off the lights and adapt the level of lighting to the needs of each moment

 

Carelessness is the major cause of unnecessary consumption in our homes and when it comes to lighting the percentage grows. It is important to maintain a small level of care to save on our bill and not throwing money away.

  • Use natural light as much as possible. In many cases, lights inside rooms do not have to be turned on.

  • Use light colours on walls and ceilings to get the most out of natural light.

  • Turn off the lights in rooms you are not using.

  • Install motion detectors with light control systems in circulation areas, garages, etc.

  • Replace incandescent light bulbs with energy-saving light bulbs. The use of this type of light bulbs can achieve savings of up to 75% and guarantee a longer life.

  • Adapts the level of lighting to the space available; high-power light bulbs do not have to be installed in all rooms. You can adapt the levels of lighting in each room according to your needs with the installation of regulators.

  • Replace fluorescent lamps with LED technology in the rooms that are most used.

  • If you already have outdoor lighting systems, install automatic control systems that use motion detectors or twilight control devices.

  • Keep lamps clean to increase the lighting intensity, with no need to adjust their power rating.

The best method of controlling electrical consumption is with the installation of CIRCUTOR's EDS energy manager. This unit can control the activation of lights with usage schedules, motion detectors or with a programmable setpoint, in addition to allowing the storage of consumption curves. The EDS unit is the best lighting control product for bank branches, supermarkets, offices and shops.

Achieve efficient management with our efficiency kits

It uses point-to-point automatic regulation managers for external lighting applications, such as CIRCUTOR's Cirlamp solution. This system can be used to program different levels of lighting and automatically control the turning on/off of lighting systems. Likewise, this can be controlled with motion detectors or twilight control sensors.

Think about your future; keeping the planet clean is something you can do

Environmental education is necessary to help keep our planet cleaner. By following a few simple tips we can help reduce human impact on the ecosystem by reducing pollution and helping the ecosystem regenerate itself.

  • Recycling rubbish by separating our waste and placing it in the appropriate container.

  • Using less plastic packaging. Using cloth grocery bags at the supermarket.

  • Using non-disposable cups. Using mugs at home and at work.

  • Buying recycled paper to help save trees.

  • Using natural soaps and detergents that do not contain chemical components that damage the environment.

  • Using bicycles and public transport.

As a leader in the energy efficiency sector, CIRCUTOR offers its customers power analyzers and energy meters that can measure and display consumption in terms of EUROS or CO2 emissions. Customers can take advantage of these features to become more environmentally friendly by changing their consumption habits to reduce their electricity bill and greenhouse gas emissions.

The analysis from power analyzers allows public companies to make substantial savings in electricity consumption. As a practical example, have a look at the following success story:

Use water wisely and take advantage of every drop

 

Water is a limited, vital and indispensable resource for humans. It is a common feature of everyday life, whether it is used for cooking, personal hygiene or household cleaning.

However, it is often used irresponsibly, with litres and litres wasted due to inappropriate routines or lack of care. Small changes in consumption habits would achieve significant results, as well as savings in bills:

  • Load the washing machine and dishwasher fully and use a suitable program

  • Turn off the taps when they are not being used

  • Use dual flush cisterns to reduce water consumption by 50%

  • Fill the sink with water to wash your face, hands or to shave

  • Have a shower instead of a bath and turn off the tap when soaping yourself

  • Wash your car with a bucket of water rather than a hose

CIRCUTOR, a company with more than 40 years of experience developing electric energy management solutions, offers its customers power analyzers that are able to measure and control electric energy and water consumption through impulse signals or impulse centralisers with communications. Thanks to the use of control software, it is possible to control energy consumption and implement continuous improvement actions to reduce electric energy consumption.

Use shared transport for the common good

 

Using public transport offers many benefits for both users and the environment, as it is an economic alternative for the common good.

Through the use of different collective services, we can help promote a healthier environment thanks to the decrease in CO2 emissions and traffic congestion in cities, thus saving time on the road. Furthermore, it reduces noise pollution in cities and improves the health of those suffering the consequences of overconsumption.

One of the most important aspects to note is that the use of public transport costs much less than using a private car, as we can avoid costs associated with the fuel, maintenance, insurance, parking and the purchase of vehicle itself.

Public transport users significantly contribute to improving energy use, but public transport companies can not be left behind and must also implement Energy Management Systems (EMS) to reduce consumption and the environmental impact of their activities, using consumption analysers capable of reporting information on energy use as well as CO 2 emissions.

Take control of your consumption and take advantage of it

 

Many consumers of electrical energy currently have a need for special tools to help them control and make decisions about energy improvement. To achieve this, it is absolutely necessary to know when and how energy is used.

Anything that is not measured cannot be improved, which is why installing consumption control units allows users to make good decisions about reducing their electricity consumption and implement improvements and achieve savings in their facilities.

CIRCUTOR provides its customers with innovative tools for managing their consumption. Thanks to its communications systems, users can find out the real consumption of their installation through a mobile or PC application, and can understand exactly how and where energy is consumed so that they can take cost-saving actions as soon as possible.

Users can now get information about their consumption right from the display of their smartphone or tablet. This allows them to, for instance, check if their contracted power with the utility company is correct, or if they need to change their consumption habits.

In the industrial environment, users can obtain data by installing energy management software, gaining the ability to control internal consumption and anticipate the information on electricity bills before they arrive. See the following links to learn about how to use a consumption data acquisition system.

Regulate temperature without excess and take advantage of all resources

 

- Adjust the temperature of your house or installation according to the time of year. Set the temperature at 24 ºC in summer and 20 ºC in winter. You can reduce it to 16-17 ºC at night. Your consumption can go up or down by approximately 5% with each degree. Thermostats and programmable thermostats are useful for good temperature control.

- Check your heating and air conditioning systems regularly. If the devices are in poor condition it could clearly impact your energy consumption.

- Keep windows and blinds open or shut depending on the time of year. Sunlight and ventilation allow you to regulate the inside temperature in a natural and efficient way.

- Switch off your air conditioners and turn off the heat if you are going to open the windows. Remember that just a few minutes a day will do the trick.

Air conditioning accounts for more than 40% of consumption in homes and in many stores and shopping centres. The best way to control the electrical consumption of your air conditioning apparatus is by measuring consumption with a CEM energy meter.

This allows you to maintain a comfortable temperature without consuming too much electricity, and it is all easily controlled from CIRCUTOR's DataBox platform.

An example of an efficient application is controlling the energy and air conditioning consumption of the different stores in the same shopping centre. This system lets you objectively compare different stores or businesses and detect where there may be problems or improper uses of energy and air conditioning systems.

Take advantage of the energy offered by the sun, wind and water

Of all the energy sources to which we have access, solar, wind and hydraulic energy are the most veteran, renewable and inexhaustible. Being able to leverage their capacities to the fullest has become essential for facing impending shortages of fossil fuels. From the simplest acts to installations that capture large amounts of energy:

  • Open the curtains to get better natural lighting. Taking advantage of sunlight can mean big savings on your electricity bill.

  • Install double-insulated windows. This will allow you to make more efficient use of the sun's thermal energy, considerably reducing the part of your electricity bill that is due to heating.

  • Install photovoltaic kits for energy self-consumption. Take advantage of natural resources to generate energy, reducing in part your electricity bill expenditure.

  • Hang your clothes out during the day and save energy by not using the dryer.

  • Use hot water only when needed. Hot water use is an energy cost, so don't waste it every time you turn on the tap.

  • Install flow reducers, as you don't need to use the entire flow for domestic tasks.

  • Optimise your use of hot water. Use insulating systems in piping as hot water use can cause the temperature to rise several degrees if the pipes are not properly insulated.

For some time now, it has also been possible to use natural resources to generate energy. Through the use of self-consumption kits you can generate clean energy for direct consumption from natural sources, combining this with energy from the electrical network when necessary. Likewise, dynamic power controllers can be used to guarantee zero injection into the mains, in compliance with current Spanish legislation.

Replace light bulbs with energy efficient ones

New lighting solutions are appearing at an increasingly faster rate which makes users consider replacing traditional lighting systems with new, more economical and efficient systems.

Replacing incandescent light bulbs with energy-efficient ones generally results in a saving of around 60-65%, or 80-85% if replacing with LED technology. Small changes in the home can reduce consumption:

  • Replace incandescent or fluorescent light bulbs with energy-efficient or LED bulbs. Replace the bulbs that are used the most first.

  • Take advantage of natural light, potentially reducing consumption by more than 60%.

  • Install switches in different areas. In large rooms, it is advisable to have different lines so that only the area of use is illuminated.

  • Control brightness. It is not always necessary to use 100% brightness; install regulators to lower the lighting level, thus reducing consumption and extending the life of the lamp.

  • Install sensors in circulation areas, helping to avoid excessive use in specific rooms.

  • Check the energy efficiency label of the lamps. Class A is the most efficient and class G the least. A Class A light bulb is three times as energy efficient as a Class G bulb.

CIRCUTOR, as a leader in the energy efficiency sector, offers its customers systems for the point-to-point control of street lights with PLC technology. These systems help to independently regulate each of the lamps, improving their energy efficiency and useful life, as well as achieving savings of around 30% in the electricity bill.

Thanks to the control software, users can regulate each of the lamps and control different incidents, reducing the response time in the event of an incident. Stay informed about the system and look at a specific success story in lighting systems:

Protect your facilities although you are not present

 

In summer months when we leave on holiday, it is important to protect our property by not making it obvious that we are away. Likewise, we must remember to protect our installations, as electrical failures could lead to major economic losses.

If appliances such as refrigerators, freezers or any others that require working continuity break down, for example, all the food stored inside will be lost. The only way to avoid these problems is to install trusted electrical protection units, units that are always active and reliable and that will rearm our installations for us.

CIRCUTOR earth leakage protection and circuit breaker units with automatic self-reclosing protect our residential and industrial installations, ensuring the continuity of the electric supply. They constantly monitor network status and avoid economic losses caused by disconnections of electronic equipment.

Use electric mobility

 

Currently, the electric vehicle is an alternative for the future of urban mobility and transport, thanks to its many advantages. The mileage capacity of these vehicles helps users cover their daily travel needs with no need to charge the vehicle, i.e., it fully meets its purpose.

In addition, the use of electric vehicles helps reduce the emission of CO2 gases into the atmosphere, in line with the requirements set forth by the European Union.

The use of this technology brings many advantages, such as:

  • Less consumption, saving 75% on the cost of fuel.

  • Vehicle purchase subsidies, representing approximately 25% of the retail price.

  • Improvement of the quality of air, reducing the emission of greenhouse gases.

  • Mobility advantages, such as car parks or areas with special circulation regulations.

  • Reduction of the noise in cities.

In line with these statements, CIRCUTOR is committed to the evolution of electrical mobility, with its wide variety of electric vehicle charging solutions, which together with its self-consumption solutions allow users to increase the efficiency of their installations, as shown in the following success story:
