Switchboard Indicator: In today’s time, there are many people who are worried about the electricity bill coming every month. Everyone is hoping that their electricity bills will come down. Many people take various measures to save electricity bills. Some of them even use fans and TVs from time to time.
But they ignore some small things due to which their electricity bill increases. One of these things is the indicator in the switch board of the house. Having this indicator shows whether the light is coming or not. But have you thought that this could be one of the reasons for increasing the bill.
You must have seen that from the kitchen to every room of the house, there are many switch boards and all of them must have an indicator. All these indicators run 24 hours throughout the day and night. Because of this also electricity is consumed on which we do not pay attention. While it burns for 24 hours.
How much electricity do you use?
Let us tell you that the voltage of supply in India is 230 ~ 240 volts and at this voltage an indicator is consumed approximately 0.3 to 0.5 watts per hour. In such a situation, if your house has 24 hours of light and your house has 3 bedrooms, 1 hall, 1 kitchen and 2 bathrooms, then there will be about 10 switchboards. It consumes 72 watts of electricity per day.
What’s its benefit?
Many times due to strong thunderstorm or wind, the light of our house sparks and this happens due to loose joints. Because of this, your expensive appliances can be damaged, because the voltage is constantly changing. In this condition, you close all your appliances and keep an eye on this small light, you will see it burning less and less when there is a changing voltage, so that the supply is changing. When these small lights start burning properly, you can turn on all the appliances in the house.
Apart from this, if an inverter is used in your house, then you must have connected it to some boards and not to others. Therefore, whenever the light goes off, the indicators of the boards where you have not connected the inverter are turned off. After this, when the light comes, this indicator burns, which shows that the light has come.
