The Ultimate Green Earth Guide

Green Power, Energy & Water Saving

Are you being as energy efficient as possible? Here are a few tips:

  • Get an assessment to energy rate your home.
  • Seal the gaps under doors, floors and windows.  Draughts account for a significant amount of energy loss.
  • By replacing halogen and feature lights with LED lamps you can be up to 10-times more efficient.
  • Turn off lights and heating when the room is not in use.
  • Turn off electrical appliances at the wall when not in use.  Appliances left on standby still use energy.
  • Use the correct size and type of heater for the room.  Overheating wastes energy.
  • Set your hot water cylinder to 60°C, the minimum recommended storage temperature.  Warm air rises, so insulate your ceiling, it's one of the best ways to cut your energy bills.
  • If you're about to buy a new appliance, choose an energy efficient model by comparing the star ratings
  • If you have a dishwasher, try to use it only when it's fully loaded.
  • Use the sun to dry clothes when you can, not the dryer.
  • Select ‘cold wash’ on your washing machine and save energy.
