We are ALL at home a lot more than we ever expected – here are some practical power-saving tips to hopefully help you avoid the shock of an increased power bill.
- Aim for moderate cooling temperatures when using an Air Conditioner. 24 – 25 ideally. It doesn’t cool down any quicker turning it down lower!
- Avoid Electric Radiators for heating – they’re expensive to run and there are far more energy-efficient Reverse Cycle Air Conditioners to do the job.
- Consider ceiling fans for creating a breeze.
- Try using a Clothes Line instead of a Clothes Dryer for drying your washing wherever possible
- If your Hot Water is excessively hot, we may need to reduce the temperature setting on your thermostat – it may be heating the water far more than it needs to. That’s expensive
- How long are those showers going for, keep an eye on that, the longer spent in there the longer the heating element takes to reheat it? Consider multiple occupants?
- Turn off items that don’t need to be on standby
- Turn off lights once you have left the room. Motion sensors can help to automate this process.
- Install intelligent lighting. LED globes are far more energy-efficient and last longer. Lamps could also be used instead of room lights when possible.
We hope you find some of these tips helpful.
