Abstract: Significant hike in global energy demand has laid extra pressure on energy generation plants and natural environment as well. Therefore, methods of reducing the global energy demand are being extensively explored worldwide. In this paper, we have discussed ways of reducing energy consumption in Residential sector. We have taken eight major appliances being used in homes and compared them on the basis of annual energy consumed and cost saving by taking suitable assumptions like running hours, seasons of operation, etc. Finally, Case study of a modern house in Aligarh district of UP is studied for analysing the percentage consumption of each appliance being discussed. The results show that appliances like light bulbs, ceiling fans and refrigerators have the highest potential of energy as well as cost saving by improving their efficiency. Further, by switching all the appliances from conventional to the most efficient models resulted in energy and cost saving of about 37% in the house taken for case study.
Keywords: Energy Consumption, Cost Saving, Efficient Appliances, Residential Electricity Consumption (REC).
