With just a few simple changes to your lifestyle and your home, you could be saving money on your electricity bills.
- HomeTurning your lights off when leaving a room can save up a lot. Replacing one halogen bulb with an LED is one step towards efficiency. Keeping your air conditioner on constantly is a bad idea. You could potentially save more money by switching it on and off for big blasts of cool air.
- KitchenOnly boil as much water as you need, cover pots and pans with lids when cooking and use a saucepan with a circumference the same size as the stovetop to reduce heat loss.
- AppliancesLeaving appliances, such as TVs, air conditioners, etc. on standby rather than switching them off results in energy wastage. When washing, air dry your laundry instead of tumble drying it.
