HOMELIVING ................................................ It pays to get smart Wouldn't it be great if there was a way to give you an extra reward for being energy efficient? Well there is -- all you have to do is get smart. EnergyAustralia energy efficiency expert Paul Myors says thousands of homes and business across NSW have interval electricity meters installed, also known as smart meters. ''These new meters measure electricity use every half hour of the day and you are charged for usage in three different time periods -- peak, shoulder and off- peak,'' he said. If you are an EnergyAustralia customer the peak period is between 2pm and 8pm on working weekdays. Off-peak times are between 10pm and 7am everyday and all other times are shoulder periods. You can save money by running appliances outside peak periods. A simple way to start is to make a list of the appliances in your home that can be switched on during non-peak times instead of peak times like your washing machine. If you have a pool and switch to a smart or interval meter the first thing to do is run your pool pump in the shoulder period. You can save up to $190 a year on your electricity bill. In fact if you switch to the off-peak period you can save up to $290 a year. If you turn your dishwasher on after 8pm rather than before 8pm you could save up to $30 a year on your bill. By using your clothes dryer on the weekend or after 8pm during the week you could save up to $40 a year on your bill. If you are heating or cooling your home during peak times, simply think about using your heater or air conditioner at a slightly lower setting, and try not to run them longer than necessary. Contact your energy company if you want to get a smart or interval meter installed. Some companies like EnergyAustralia may even install them for free.
