Electricity Cost Brisbane: How to Reduce Your Energy Bills
The best 7+ ways to reduce your electricity cost in Brisbane! Here’s how you can reduce your electricity bills. Are solar panels a good idea?
Have you ever tried to break down your electricity bills and work out which appliances cost the most to run?
It’s not easy, but this may help you figure it all out
The most expensive appliances are almost certainly the air conditioner, followed by the electric water heater, the refrigerator and freezer and then the clothes dryer.
Do you always make sure that all the windows and doors are properly shut when you are using an air conditioner or heater?
Efficient insulation can halve your cooling or heating bills, but minimising draughts and closing the curtains at night help too. Have you ever thought about double glazing or window tinting?
And have you gone from incandescent or halogen light bulbs to LED?
Energy efficient light bulbs use far less electricity and last much longer than traditional ones, and power strips, low-flow shower heads and motion sensing dimmer switches all reduce your energy usage and electricity bill without making a difference to your lifestyle.
How to Save on Your Electricity Bills in Brisbane
But the best solution is to install solar panels and produce your own electricity, rather than buying it
In that case you run the dishwasher, washing machine, hot water system and pool pump during the day, and set the air conditioner to cool the house in the afternoon before you come home.
Little things add up
Hang your clothes on the line to dry whenever possible
Dress more warmly in cool weather
Only heat or cool the rooms you are actually using
Turn the lights out when you don’t need them or install room sensors
Wash the dishes yourself if there are not many
Check all your thermostat settings, particularly the fridge, air conditioning and hot water
Switch appliances off at the wall
Use a home energy monitor.
