24 degree celsius for Air Conditioner

Green Sabah says: From my previous post on Going Green in the Office , I'm going to explain more about why should we set our air-conditioner to 24 degree Celsius and above? By taking this small step, it could help you save energy for your house or office and at the same time save resources from power generating. Not only so, reducing the temperature of your air-conditioner can help slow down the global climate change. Global warming is a major issue throughout the world now, all of us can play a role in making a change to protect and preserve this earth we lived in. As far as I know, the Malaysian government has taken the initiative to urge all government office to set their air-conditioner to a minimum of 24 degrees, the private sectors was also encourage to do so.

Minimum 24 Degree Celsius ruling for office

PUTRAJAYA: All government offices will have to observe minimum air-conditioning temperature of 24 degrees Celsius soon.
Energy, Green Technology & Water Minister Datuk Seri Peter Chin Fah Kui said the energy saving step would come into force once a circular on it is issued by Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan.

“The Prime Minister has instructed that in the interests of energy efficiency, all government offices must observe the directive (minimum 24 degrees Celsius) for air-conditioning.
“Exceptions will be given for critical places like hospitals where low temperatures are necessary,” he told a joint press conference with Natural Resources & Environment Minister Datuk Seri Douglas Unggah Embas here yesterday.

Earlier, the two ministers had attended a meeting of the National Green Energy & Climate Change Council, which was chaired by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at the Perdana Putra Building here.
Commenting further, Peter said the temperature (24 degree Celsius) was suitable for office work and could also help reduce energy bills overall.

“We are setting 24 degree Celsius. If were to drop by one degree to 23 degrees Celsius, it means we have to increase expenditure from four to seven per cent,” he said.
He said the step had already been taken at his ministry and it had helped reduce the energy bill up to RM700,000 a year.

He added that the ministry was also drafting a bill on the same to get the private sector to follow suit.
“We hope by 2013, all privately-owned buildings will follow this ruling,” he said, adding that at the meeting, the Prime Minister also asked all government departments to change conventional light bulbs in stages to energy saving ones.

The Prime Minister also asked for a detailed ‘road map’ on green technology development for the country, he said.On the government’s pledge to reduce carbon emissions by 40 per cent by 2020, Douglas said the effort was on track and that the target would be achieved on time. 
“To date, we have reduced intensity by 29.7 million metric tonnes. To meet the 40 per cent target, we need to reduce by 40 million metric tonnes. This is our contribution to global efforts on the world’s climate changes,” he said.

Tidak tersangka menaikkan suhu penghawa dingin boleh membantu penjimatan want sebanyak RM700,000 setahun untuk pejabat kerajaan.

Mohd Ishak said...

Harap semua jabatan kerajaan akan mengikuti peraturan ini supaya boleh membantu negara mengurangkan perbelanjaan.

Bukan saja di pejabat, cara ini patut diaplikasi di rumah juga.

Cara yang mudah, tetapi mampu melindungi bumi kita.

ini langkah yang baik dalam penggunaan tenaga secara cekap.

Lebih baik lagi jika kita langsung tidak menggunakan penghawa dingin. mungkin kalau bukan di pejabat tapi di rumahlah. boleh guna kipas saja.

Cadangan ini rasanya bagus..Harap semua jabatan akan memberikan kerjasama bagi menetapkan suhu penghawa dingin minima 24c..
