Tips to save energy:

  • Use the following easy steps to save on those ever increasing energy bills.
  • A geyser uses 40% of all household electricity; switch it off to save during peak times, using a timer or controller.
  • Insulate geysers and water pipes as this will help the water to stay hot for longer. Reduce the maximum temperature setting for your geyser/ thermostat, to 55ºC .
  • Instead of a bath rather shower, as showers use less water and energy.
  • Energy saving shower heads use less water and electricity.
  • Use energy saving globes (CFLs) instead of incandescent globes.
  • Don’t leave TVs, DVD players and other electrical equipment in stand-by mode – rather switch them off completely.
  • To save energy in your kitchen close fridge doors as quickly as possible when taking items out – do not leave the door open for longer than necessary.
  • Keep room temperatures between 18ºC and 22ºC and wear warm clothes use hot water bottles instead of using a electric blankets. In order to save even more power and money, you can install solar water heating, using the power of the sun to heat your water.
