Today we are looking at how to save on your power bill during the most expensive months of the year.
Hot water can account for 30% of your power bill, so shorter showers can save you power! Check your shower flow rate with a stopwatch and a 10 litre bucket, if the bucket fills in less than a minute at your normal showering temperature, you may like to install a more efficient shower head or a flow restrictor.
Dry homes are easier and cheaper to heat, so it is important to have good insulation, good heating, and to ventilate. A simple way to ventilate is to open your windows for 20 minutes during the warmest part of the day, even in winter.
