After some ways to be efficient with your power usage at home and save some money?
There are lots of helpful tips out there, so we’ve compiled a bunch of them into one handy blog post.
1. Dodge the draught – seal windows and doors to keep the heat in and the draught out. Sausage-dog optional.
2. Ahead of the colder months, it’s a good idea to check your hot water cylinder. If you can feel heat on the outside, chances are it’s leaking power. Wrap it up!
3. Making a cuppa? Only fill the jug with the water you need. It takes less time, and less power. We’ll
drink to that!
4. Here’s a bright idea. How much power savings does it take to change your bulbs to LEDs? How does up to 85% less power sound?
5. A clothes dryer costs about $1 per load so as long as it’s not raining, why not dry your clothes outside?
6. Don’t standby. Shutting down your computer at the end of each day is an easy way to cut down your power costs.
7. The same can be said for your chargers, which still suck power even when your devices aren't attached. Pull the plug and save!
8. Hot washes use loads more energy than cold, so drop the temp and your power bill will follow.
9. Hang up the hairdryer and let your locks dry naturally. Less damage to your hair and your bill.
10. Now that it’s getting darker, earlier, make sure you lock the sunshine in by drawing the curtains at dusk before daytime heat escapes, and before you turn on the heating.
Don’t forget, we also have a hub full of information about saving electricity, including a few downloadable resources.
Or, you can find tips for a warmer, healthier home from Energywise on their website.
