Tips on how to save energy at home while cooking and heating
Make sure you light your stove only when you are ready with your cut vegetables and ingredients. This helps in saving energy during the waiting period. Make sure you do not leave the gas burner on for long durations while heating your food.
If you can use pressure cookers for cooking, choose those over frying pans or open utensils as they require lesser gas and use lesser energy to cook your meals.
Any meats or vegetables will cook in a shorter duration in cookers than in open utensils.
The lesser water you use in your cooking, the more energy you will save. Water takes a longer time to evaporate, hence use lesser amount of water in your cooking
When boiling anything, save more fuel by keeping a small flame once your meal has reached boiling point
Cover all your pots and pans while cooking
If you see an orange or yellow flame, it means there is carbon around your flame and gas is being wasted
When using a geyser for heating water, do not keep your geyser on for long durations
Make sure you fill your buckets with hot water and then turn off your geyser while not in use
Gas geysers are instant geysers and thus you do not need to keep them turned on for long durations to get hot water
