Lifestyle implications for Apartment
A household that is inconvenienced by power cuts and blackouts may have to consider investments in alternates if they have not already done so.
For households from the same demographics ---- living in similar neighbourhoods, similar homes and family size almost being same --- we have seen a wide variation in monthly electricity charges. There could be multiple factors influencing this widespread. A few are listed below :
1. Having the air-conditioners on for longer hours and / or operating at lower temperatures to improve the ambient temperature of their room.
2. Using geysers only in 2 of the 3 bathrooms in the house, thereby making efforts to reduce the amount of water heated for bathing needs and controlling the amount of unused hot water.
3. Making a conscious effort to minimize the usage of air-conditioners or use
them more effectively in conjunction with ceiling fans.
