2 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, April 3, 2012 MB A COMMON PROBLEM HOW TO SAVE POWER IN UNIT BLOCKS SWITCHING OFF Energy-efficient lights in common areas of apartment blocks can cut power bills. ELECTRICITY used in common areas of apartments helps to keep residents safe and secure but there are some simple tips to help avoid adding hundreds of dollars each year to strata fees. Electricity consumption in common areas of apartments such as halls, garages orpoolscanbeupto50percentofthe electricity used in a high rise building. Ausgrid Energy efficiency expert Paul Myors says common area electricity usage can vary significantly, from as little as $100 per year for small blocks and villas, to more than $1200 per year for a large high-rise complex. Start saving electricity in common areas by choosing energy-efficient lights and installing timers and motion sensors so they're not on 24 hours a day; Ensure pool pumps are not running longer than necessary. Apartment complex- es with time-based pricing can run their pool equipment outside of peak times to cut electricity costs; Have car park ventilation controlled by carbon monoxide sensors and variable speed drive fans; Program time clocks on airconditioning systems to minimise operation time and use thermostat settings to avoid overuse.
