Save Energy in the Home


You can save up to 20% on your electricity bill just by turning off lights and other electrical goods when you are out of the room or not using them.

There are many ways you can reduce your electricity bill further, and that's by following some simple tips.

  • Nex time your light bulbs blow, replace them with energy efficient light bulbs.
  • Use less hot water. Washing clothes in cold water is just as good as washing in hot water, and uses less power in heating the water.
  • Refrain from rinsing dirty dishes with hot water, as it wastes a lot of water getting the hot water from your hot water system to your sink, and a lot of energy is consumed for the little hot water used. To find out information on saving water, go to http://howtosavewater.googlepages.com
  • The energy efficiency of electrical equipment should be checked before you purchase any goods. Most appliances like fridges, washing machines and dish washers come with an energy rating. Remember, the more stars the better!
  • Solar energy is an excellent way to use free energy from the sun to power your house. Many homes already have solar hot water systems, but it can also be used to power other heating, cooling and everyday appliances.
