Energy saving tips for your home

  •  Adjust the thermostat of your geyser at home to the 55 degree celsius to 65 degree celsius range.
  • Water heating makes up most of your electricity bill (generally about 30 – 40 %).  By taking a shower instead of a bath you will use less hot water.
  • Where possible, install insulation between the ceiling and the roof to ensure that your home remains cool in summer and warm in winter.
  • Swimming pool pumps can account for a large percentage of a home’s electricity consumption.  REduce the pool pump operating time to the minimum necessary for keeping your pool clean.
  • Do not overfill your refrigerator or freezer.
  • Do not set the freezer temperature lower than necessary.
  • Do not open the fridge door unnecessarily.
  • Do not put hot food into the refrigerator.
  • Make sure that the seal around the door is not broken.
  • Empty and switch off or defrost the fridge before taking an extended holiday.
