Energy Efficiency Tips

For both home occupiers and renters, there are ways to improve energy efficiency within your household and reduce bills.

Small changes to your daily habits can impact your energy consumption significantly. Here are 5 easy tips to help save you money and help the environment:

  1. Avoid using heaters and air-conditioning by wearing the right clothes. Rug up in Winter with jumpers and blankets. Wear cotton and avoid synthetic fabrics in Summer.
  2. Use your curtains. Closing your curtains at night in Winter to help keep the heat in, or keep the heat out during the day in Summer.
  3. Wash your clothes using the Cold setting. According to the Victorian Government SwitchOn website, “you can save around $115 per year by washing clothes in cold water”.
  4. Switch off gadgets at the wall to avoid standby power wastage. Also referred to as vampire energy, a lot of electronics still draw power even when they aren’t being used, including phone chargers, lamps and toasters. Switch off gadgets at the wall and you could save 10% off your energy bill.
  5. Air dry clothes and avoid using the tumble dryer. Did you know one of the most expensive to run appliances in your house is the tumble dryer? Hanging your washing to air dry is a great way to save on your energy bill.
