Making Your House More Energy Efficient

Making the switch from regular standard light bulbs to LEDS could save you a whopping 80% of the energy used per bulb. It’s a simple yet highly effective item to tackle if you are looking to make savings on your utility bills.

Around the home, looking at small ways to save can also help. For example, setting the hot water temperature in your bathroom at 50°C and no higher, as well as using a microwave oven in the kitchen to cook instead of a conventional oven.

With conserving energy now at the forefront of our minds, as consumers we are more eco-conscious than ever. When shopping for a home appliance or looking to upgrade an old one, it is best to look for items that carry the ‘Energy Star’. Products that have this label fall within the top 25% of the most energy efficient appliances that are available to buy.
