Guidelines for saving energy at home

Both at the level of saving for the family and to take care of the environment the energy saving is a fundamental concept. For these reasons, we must all be aware of responsible consumption.

- Unplugging the devices whenever possible (computer, television, laptops ...)

- Unplugging the chargers when they are not in use.

We can also bet on tariffs with time discrimination.

Lighting
