Home Living : April 21st 2009
6 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, April 21, 2009 Winter switch-off HOMELIVING It's time to pack up those fans and prepare for the cooler months. According to EnergyAustralia's energy- efficiency expert, Paul Myors, the change of season is a good time to review your energy use by looking at your appliances. Simple steps to help appliances run more efficiently will cut your electricity costs heading into winter. Now that it's getting close to non- swimming season, a good option is to reduce the time your pool pump is on. Generally, if your pool is not heated, you only need to run your pool pump for about two to three hours a day during cooler weather, that's about half the running time needed during summer. Take advantage of the Federal Government's free ceiling insulation offer of up to $1600 -- there will probably be a rush on suppliers so plan ahead. Switch off the old second fridge now the summer entertainment season is winding down, leaving the door ajar. A 10-year-old fridge running 24 hours a day, seven days a week, could be adding up to $220 to your energy bill every year and 1.5 tonnes of CO2 emissions. Electrical appliances in standby mode are hidden energy guzzlers. The average home has more than 20 appliances that can consume standby power when not being used, potentially adding over $100 a year to bills.
