Home Living : July 3rd 2012
2 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, July 3, 2012 MB HOME HEATING REDUCING THE COSTS POWER-SAVING TIPS Janita Singh A simple door snake is a cheap way to stop under- door draughts in winter. HEATING your home is a major expense in winter. With power prices set to rise and the impact of the carbon tax, families are looking at ways to save. A number of websites help consumers compare power prices as well as suggesting ways they can switch suppliers and save. Energy provider AGL is offering an innovative way to help -- with new free DIY Home Energy Audits that can be down- loaded from the Smarter Living Centre link, www.aglsmarterliving.com.au (go to the DIY Home Energy Audit section). The audit provides consumers with some simple, personalised advice and practical solutions to manage their energy usage. AGL general manager of marketing and retail sales Mark Brownfield said con- sumers could download three types of energy audits in the privacy of their own home. The first assesses energy consump- tion in the home, the second assesses consumption of household appliances and the third is a structural and external audit of all elements outside the home. Ausgrid's energy-efficiency expert Paul Myors said home-heating costs could in- crease by up to 25 per cent in winter from simple draughts that suck away warm air. ''A simple door snake is a cheap solution to stop under-door draughts and can be found in most supermarkets,'' he said. ''Covering windows by closing curtains and blinds helps prevent heat escaping from your home. If you are building or renovat- ing, consider installing double-glazed win- dows as it minimises heat loss,'' he said. Ceiling and wall insulation make homes more comfortable and reduces heating costs. Laying rugs on bare floors is a cheaper alternative to underfloor insulation. $ON T PAY RETAIL BUY DIRECT m!S SEEN IN (OME "EAUTIFULn COMPARE OUR PRICES!
