How to conserve energy?

The following simple energy-saving steps will help ease the high demand for electricity in NTU:

  • Turn off the air conditioner when you leave your work place.
     
  • Cancel your air conditioning booking if you do not intend to stay overtime.
     
  • Call FRC hotline: 67904777 to turn off air conditioning if your usage of the facility is shorter then what you intended.
     
  • If you have booked a facility but have decided not to use it, please cancel your online facility booking to release the facility for other to use, as well as, to shut down the scheduling of the air conditioning for the facility.
     
  • Use a fan instead of an air conditioner in a well-ventilated area. Fans use 70 to 90 percent less electricity than air conditioners.
     
  • When using an air conditioner, set the thermostat at no lower than 24 degrees.
     
  • Close shades or blinds to prevent the sun from adding more heat to the room.  
     
  • Keep entrance door closed. Keeping hot air in and cool air out means the air-con system won't have to work as hard to keep you comfortable.
