Home Living : September 20th 2011
8 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, September 20, 2011 » ADVERTISING FEATURE Switch off and save Savings . . . shower timer. HOUSEHOLDERS can save more than $200 on their power bills just by changing the way they use some appliances. Ausgrid energy efficiency expert Paul Myors said turning off standby power and having shorter showers were simple ways to save money at home and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Up to $80 a year and 0.4 tonnes of CO2 can be saved by simply switching off standby power. Entertainment systems and computer equipment are the worst offenders so if it's safe and practical try flicking the switch at the wall to eliminate standby power altogether. Electric hot water is the biggest energy user in the average home but shaving two minutes off your showers can save you up to $100 per year and 0.8 tonnes of CO2. Washing your clothes in cold water can save around $60 per year because the cost per cycle on a warm wash can be five times more than on a cold wash. Heating and cooling accounts for around a quarter of the average household's energy use, but you can save up to $80 per year by heating between 18C and 21C and cooling between 23C and 26C. About 30 per cent of Australian homes have more than one fridge so consider getting rid of the older one to save up to $250 per year and more than one tonne of CO2. Fridges older than 15 years can use two to three times the electricity of an equivalent new model.
