Precautionary measures for computers

Here I have picked out the most important tips essential to keep Electronics performing at their best. Computers are handling a number of essential and important tasks in our everyday lives, and they need proper attention in order to stay working properly.

Mentioned below are some of the basics we should notify when using computers or similar electronics to reduce the risk of damages at any level.

  • Always switch off the electronics when leaving or not using. For computers, it can save energy and avoid damages to hardware.
    Make sure you turn off your computer if not in use for a span of two hours or more.
  • Screensavers are fun to look at, though they do not actually save energy (and may, in fact, use more). Instead, make sure the computer enters into the Sleep mode.
  • “Phantom energy” is the usage of accumulated energy to power the small OFF or STANDBY lights on electronics. Attach electronics such as computers to a surge protector to prevent the devices from using “Phantom Energy”.
  • The cooling vents of computers should be properly cleaned on regular basis. Dusted and clogged vents cause overheating of the Central Processing Unit (CPU), which damages the working potential.
  • It is important to set an appropriate level of brightness for the monitor screen. Make sure the desktop is appropriately bright— neither too bright that it is hurting for eyes, nor so low that it is difficult to view clearly. A brighter screen uses more energy.
  • When getting rid of an old computer, either donate to an organization if less than five years old or make sure you give it to the proper recycling industries. Computers and electronics contain elements that can be really threatening to the environment. Even the damaged or old ones possess certain elements and components that can be still be utilized perfectly. This makes it worthwhile to make sure the device is disposed of safely.

These are few of the precautionary measures that can lower the risk of every kind of damages along with the life span of Electronics. I hope they will prove to be beneficial for you.
