Save Power & Conserve Power

Save Power ~ Conserve Power

Following is a list of myths about energy and energy savings. Sometimes the basic premise is correct, but the energy savings are much smaller than people realize. In other cases the myth is based on factors that were once true but have been subsequently resolved through better design or manufacturing of products.

Buying an efficient air conditioner or furnace will automatically reduce my energy bill.
This is true to some extent, but you won't realize all the possible savings if the equipment is not sized or installed properly. Studies have shown that typical air conditioner and duct systems are improperly installed, wasting 1/3 or more of the energy used by the air conditioner. New and replacement equipment (and ducts) need to be properly designed and installed to realize all the possible savings. The same caveats about proper installation hold true for insulation, windows and many other energy-efficiency upgrades.
Energy efficiency and energy conservation are one and the same thing.
Well-intentioned information campaigns during oil crises of the 1970s created a lot of confusion about how to save energy and even about how to talk about saving energy. Energy efficiency means getting a job done with less energy. This could be lighting a room, cooling a house, or refrigerating some vegetables. The things made possible by using energy are sometimes called "energy services," e.g. illumination, comfort, or food preservation. Energy conservation, on the other hand, means reducig the level of services, e.g. reducing lighting or comfort or turning up the temperature of your fridge. Reducing service levels (conservation) does not necessarily mean sacrafice, however. For example, many spaces are overlit by current-day standards, water heater temperature are set too high, etc. Consumers have the option of improving energy efficiency (e.g. by purchasing better appliances) and/or reducing service levels, but lowering the quality of life is not a prerequisite for reducing energy demand.
Duct tape is good for sealing ducts.
Unfortunately, laboratory research has concluded that duct tape has very low durability when used to seal ducts. On new installations, tape may fall off due to poor surface preparation, because ducts are installed in dirty and dusty locations and conditions. On older systems, the tape falls off as it ages and the adhesive dries out and tends to wrinkle.
When my appliance is turned off, it's off.
In fact, we've found that most devices continue to consume power when they're switched off, sometimes as much power as when they're on!
Cleaning refrigerator coils saves energy.
While this seems intuitively logical, and very small savings may indeed arise, the few efforts to actually measure this effect have typically come up empty-handed. This is a classic example of a widely held belief based on assumptions rather than measurements.
Dimming my incandescent lights by 50% will cut my lighting bill in half.
Actually, the relationship is not linear and savings will be less than expected. As the voltage drops, the filament cools, the wavelength spectrum of the light output shifts further intothe infra-red, and efficacy thus suffers. Interestingly, fluorescent dimming is more linear and the savings for dimming are proportionately higher.
Turning up (down) the thermostat will make your home get warm (cool) faster.
It's tempting to think of a thermostat like a water tap, i.e. the wider you open it the more water (heat/coolth) will come out. In reality, it works more like a light switch in that if it's "on" the same amount of light (heat/coolth) will come out.
Installing foam gaskets in electrical outlets will significantly reduce air leakage.
Measurements have shown that less than 1% of a home's air leakage is due to outlets.
Leaving lights, computers, and other appliances on uses less energy than turning them off and makes them last longer.
The small surge of power created when some devices are turned on is vastly smaller than the energy used by running the device when it's not needed. While it used to be the case that cycling appliances and lighting on and off drastically reduced their useful lifetimes, these problems have been largely overcome through better design.
Energy efficiency increases the first cost of houses.
While efficient products may initially cost more, in some cases there may be little or no first cost. Most efficient products are also premium products (in terms of features, warranty, etc.), so it's difficult to say what you are paying for the efficiency. Market data have shown, for example, that there is little or no correlation between refrigerator efficiency and purchase price. In some instances, efficiency can even reduce first cost as in the case where smaller ("downsized") heating and cooling systems can be installed if they're highly efficient. Smaller units with high efficiency generate as much heating or cooling benefit as large, inefficient ones.
Insulating the ceiling will just cause more heat to leak out of the windows.
Adding insulation to one part of a home won't increase the "pressure" on heat losses through other parts. However, it is certainly true that poorly insulated areas will be the major loser of heat and they often merit attention before improving already well-insulated parts of the home.
Switching to electric room heaters will reduce your energy bill.
This is true only under some circumstances. If you have central electric heating, the using room heaters will most likely save you money. But, if you have central gas heating (which is far cheaper per unit of useful heat) you can easily match or even exceed your heating bill by switching to electrical units.
Fluorescent lighting is unhealthy.
Fluorescent lighting has changed dramatically in the last few years. Today's fluorescents have greatly improved color quality. And the annoying flicker and hum have been eliminated from fluorscents that use electronic ballasts. Because they require less electricity, fluorescents generate less power plant pollution, emissions which have many known health effects. Fluorescent lights also contain small amounts of mercury and should be disposed of properly. However, additional mercury releases are avoided thanks to reduced use of mercury-containing fossil fuels used to generate electricity. If it's been a while since you tried fluorescent lights, you might give them another chance.
Halogen lighting is super-efficient.
It's true that halogen lights use slightly less energy than standard incandescent bulbs, but halogens require transformers that can use extra energy, even when the light is off. They are also a fire hazard. By comparison, compact flourescent lights are nearly three-times as efficient and don't pose a fire hazard. Many new models are dimmable, like halogens. See
Electric heating is more efficient than fuel-based heating.
It's true that all, or almost all, of the electricity that goes into an electric heater is transformed to useful heat in your home. However, making electricity is an inefficient process, with as much as two-thirds of the input energy (coal, natural gas, etc.) being lost in the process. This is why electricity is so much more expensive for the consumer than direct fuels.

Career in "Advertising" industry for creativity and talent

The Advertising industry has a voracious appetite for creativity and talent. It is constantly growing and creating jobs for highly talented people who can think out of the box and come up with innovative ideas. Both big and small advertising agencies exist that help companies touch base with their consumers and put their message across using the various media like print, radio, television, and the Internet.

There is a perennial demand for talent. "As products launch and grow, so does the job market. Ad agencies now face competition on an international level from MNC brands. If you join a widely spread agency, you have chances to be transferred overseas too. Growth prospects are immense," says Pankaj Sharma, 29, an executive in a recruitment consultancy in Delhi.
Job profile
Advertising is handled by advertising agencies that vary in size and scope. Some large companies have set up separate departments to handle specialized areas like market research, film, video production etc. The job profiles vary according to the departments: Client Servicing, Creative Department, Media Department, Production, Television and Film, Photography, Market Research, Exhibition and Event Management, Promotion, and Direct Marketing.
The executive side includes Client Servicing, Market Research and Media Research. It involves understanding client needs, finding new business and retaining existing business, selecting the appropriate media, analysing timing and placement of advertisements, and negotiating the financial aspects of the deal.

For example, an accounts executive who works in the client servicing department should know the most effective way to advertise the client's product or service, i.e., the media and their cost effectiveness. Account executives should also have an idea about market research and target audiences.
Thus, the client-servicing arena is crucial. It is the delicate link between the client and the agency. Communication skills are tested here, as it has to communicate to the agency what the client has in mind. Vacancies in this field call for individuals who go out into the market to get the right brief and then sell the ideas.
Media personnel have grown from minuscule one-man-armies that would handle release orders, negotiate deals and send material, to a full-fledged part of any agency.
The creative group is the foundation of a sound advertising agency. It includes Art Directors, Creative Directors, copywriters, scriptwriters, visualisers, photographers, typographers, and the mandatory DTP operators. This department creates the advertisement copy. It verbalises and visualises the specific needs of a client. As ad films are also a part of filmmaking, career options related to film also are part in this field.
Thus, careers in advertising can include working in advertising agencies, marketing jobs, copywriting, graphic design, media, market research, public relations, etc. You can work in the field of targeted advertising, Internet advertising, radio advertising, advertising affiliate programs, billboard advertising, etc.
Today, new areas are emerging within advertising -- like event management, image management, digital marketing, Internet marketing, etc. Event management is when events are marketed, and image management is when a particular profile of an individual / organisation is projected. Internet marketing has also brought about a lot of changes in advertising, and one can cater to a select group of audiences rather than a mass audience.
There is a great demand for graduates from the general stream who have a command of the language of communication plus knowledge of designing packages like Photoshop, Coral Draw or fine arts, especially in the creative department.
"Advertising agencies generally prefer individuals who have a creative bend of mind, can think independently but work well in teams. If you are interested in pursuing a career in advertising, you must be highly goal driven and work well under pressure," says Shailesh Singh, 27, who works in an ad agency in Delhi.
"Basic qualities like creativity, flair for writing, and the ability to translate ideas into a visual format are required. Candidates should have insights into the interests of people from all walks of life. Those in the creative field should possess artistic abilities to make the ad appealing to the masses," he continues.
Payment structure
Job positions and earnings in an agency vary with its size and turnover. "Fresh graduates can start with a salary of Rs 10,000 - Rs 15,000 per month. This can go up to Rs 15,000 to Rs 25,000 per month with a few years experience.
Doing a specialised diploma/degree can further boost a candidate's worth. The salary of a successful advertising person can be between Rs 30,000 and Rs. 60,000 or more per month depending on the agency or company," says Pankaj.
Job prospects
Career opportunities in advertising include openings in private advertising agencies; advertising departments in private or public sector companies; in advertising sections of newspapers, journals, magazines; commercial sections of radio or television; market research organisations, etc. One can also freelance, of course.
"If you are a graduate, you can enter at a trainee level. The pay packet also gets heavier as the workload and levels increase. However, although you may get a break at the lower levels easily, sheer quality is demanded at the top. The ever-increasing pressures at these levels expedite the exit from this category," says Shailesh. "It is up to the individual to know where his potential lies. There are colleges and degrees available that polish you in the line you choose. Or, simply work as an intern in an ad agency. Gain knowledge of all the departments and then make up your mind."
