From nine ten households The measures already taken to save electricity, but most did not change their appliances, according to a study by a consultant. Samsung has been awarded Samsung for its company Clarin. According to the survey, there were 1,700 people, broad spectrum, Capital Federal, Buenos Aires, Rosario, Cordoba and Mendoza.
The report emphasizes that Immigrants responded 3.7 to 2017 Consumption of electrical energy at home. And 90 percent "meet" with measures that allow rational use of energy. But the most commonly used calls are still very curious when doing housework Generation X. (Born between 1965 and 1981) and Millennials (Born between 1982 and 1994).
Andrea Heins is an Energy Efficiency Consultant, it's no coincidence that in this age group, X Generations have noticed "generosity, Internet birth and technological progress," and Milennials, "accustomed to the development of highly-adapted technologies and virtual life in real life" ".
In order to find out about the consumption of domestic energy, the study shows 45% of activated measures are active (looking for a change) and 55% passive (who saves it). Do you want to activate it? 86% have installed energy saving lamps (LED) and 36% bought electrical appliances that spend less energy. In the area of liabilities, 82% turned off the light for the first time, 48% used less air conditioning and 21% reduced the clarity of the washing machine.
The first conclusion of the survey is positive because "90 percent of people are waiting for the use of rational energy," says Diego Puhl, the home of Samsung's Home Line. "Most positives are already thinking; Now, what does the consumer understand when he cares about energy? This is where the consumer becomes effective and optimizes the costs at the end of the month. "
For industrial engineers, Puhle expects 2019 to "bring people closer to new technologies, such as Inverter (the intelligent system, shutting down and restarting the engines), thinking Less than 10 years of age, not more than 25 percent for traditional devices. "Price becomes a relative for its quality, durability and saving".
Puhl believes that consumers are "working hard but spending a lot on older electrical appliances", turning them back to new home appliances technology. already There is a rise. " Of course, in 2017, the general market was between 7% and 10% in Inverter technology sales, 208% 208 in 2018 and is estimated 30% floor of 2019.
The former Secretary of the Energy Ministry, for Andrea Heins, is vital to raise awareness about efficient consumption. "That's something We have to enter our everyday habits, above the extreme temperatures (the air must be at least 24 degrees), or reflected in the savings bill. We understand that we are in a transition and must be modified ".

Within this 36 percent, it helps to invest and innovate air conditioners, refrigerators and washing machines, which make up changes that make up the majority of equipment, mostly in July and August. "Electricity costs are increasing compared to what the price of the product is"And he stressed that effective consumption at home" is the new trend that is especially popular amongst young people ".
The highest income segment (ABC1) and Baby Boomers have focused on air conditioning, while in the refrigerator and in the home refrigerator. And among those who bought it, It is a tendency to pay for products that offer a better and cheaper service. For example, the interviewed 6 people think of the future of Smarthome, which would be "connected and intelligent house".
Heins does not want to go back how important information is at home. "We need to know a little more about the LED lamp, which is a bit more expensive, but this difference is quickly recovered for a couple of months, much longer." This type of warning is taken into account 34% of respondents do not know how to save energy technologies in household appliances. Also, only 2 to 10 are known as Inverter technology, which saves up to 35% of air conditioning consumption.
For information access, Heins thinks, "The consumer password is one of the keys to pass through. To find out which tools you use and how they are used, the user will know what steps they will take. Because the unused lights are easy to shut off, reduce the use of the dishwasher or air it; But efforts must be made to access and understand information, for example, What is the Ventilator Investor Technology, in the refrigerator, not in Frost and Eco Bubble Washers?.
In the end, Heins recognizes that homeowners are more realistic and more aware of their household expenses. "However, these measures have affected, in this case, the economic adjustment, not boldness, except very little altruistic, Almost at home, this effortless energy use would not be made for free".
