4 HLF - Publication, Tuesday, August 19, 2008 ................................................ HOMELIVING Water wise The 100L tank is $99 and the tap allows for simple connection straight to your drip or porous irrigation systems, or can be used to fill a bucket to water the garden or wash the car. They are also great for collecting water from the shed or garage that would otherwise go to waste. Available at Bunnings Warehouse. Minitanks are smaller and more lightweight than traditional water tanks, making it easy for almost any household to store and recycle rainwater. These small and lightweight tanks come in different sizes and designs, and can store up to 200 litres of rainwater. The Minitank diverter is easily attached to your downpipe and to save extra water. Available at Bunnings Warehouse. Reducing the cost of your water bill is easy with help from the new Hydrosave Water Saving Kit which provides includes six water saving devices suitable for the bathroom, ensuite, kitchen and laundry. Ask your landlord Renters can do a lot to keep a lid on energy bills and greenhouse emissions. Heating and cooling appliances are some of the biggest energy users in the home and rental properties are often poorly insulated. Some good news is the Federal Government has announced a Landlord Insulation Rebate of up to $500 for installation of ceiling insulation in rental properties. Details at www.environment.gov.au/ rebates. If your hot water system is electric and not on a cheaper off-peak tariff then you're paying top dollar for hot showers. Installing a triple-star showerhead can save up to $100 a year but get your landlord's permission first. Older fridges use up to three times the energy of an equivalent new high-star rating model. Regardless of the age of your fridge ensure there is at least 80mm gap at the back and sides and try to locate it away from sun and the oven. Anyone can install compact fluorescent lightglobes (CFLs) and they use 80 per cent less energy and last much longer. Each CFL can save up to $10 per year on your energy bill. And always try to switch lights and appliances off when not needed. Clothes dryers also use lots of electricity and people in apartments might feel they have to use them for every load, which can add more than $100 per year to your bill. Where possible use a clothesline or an indoor clothes horse. Details supplied by Paul Myors an energy efficiency expert from EnergyAustralia.
