21 May 2018

It seems like more and more Australian homeowners are looking for ways to reduce their electricity bill. The world has been marred by economic troubles and scraping away any amount of money can come in handy. But how do you reduce your household’s energy use? Here are five ways that are guaranteed to work.

Go solar

Take a closer look at modern-day homes and chances are you’ll see that many of them have solar panels. These panels are pretty easy to install and they can help you cut your electricity bill significantly. If you decide to invest in a solar battery as well, you might even be able to reduce your electricity bill to $0. Moreover, by installing solar panels, you’ll be reducing your impact on the planet, which is always a good thing. Going solar will also increase the value of your home in case you ever decide to sell it.

Use LED bulbs

We’ve all been hearing so much about LED bulbs lately. Not only that these bulbs last longer than traditional bulbs but they also use less energy. With that in mind, you might want to get rid of all the incandescent bulbs in your home and replace them withLEDs. What’s so great about these is that they come in all kinds of shapes and colors and finding those that suit your needs should be a real piece of cake. It’s also important to mention that LEDs don’t contain any mercury and help reduce mercury pollution.

Repair broken appliances

If some of your appliances aren’t working properly, repairing them might help you reduce your energy usage. This is especially the case with appliances you’ve been using for quite some time. Depending on how well you know your way around the tools, you can either try to fix them yourself or hire professionals to do it for you. If you opt for the latter, make sure you turn to local experts who can help you. For example, if you’re based in Greater Western Sydney, turning to a good electrician from Blacktown is recommended.

Add more attic insulation

If your attic isn’t insulated properly, large amounts of warm air escape your home during the heating season. And there’s no need to say that this only adds to your electricity bill. In order to make sure this isn’t the case with your home, adding some extra attic insulation might be a good idea. There are more than a few insulation materials you can go for, with fiberglass, cellulose and mineral wool being the most popular among them. You can either choose to add insulation yourself or have experts do it for you.

Rely on natural light

A lot of Australians tend to use artificial lighting too much. By relying more on natural light, you can reduce your artificial lighting usage and lower your electricity bill. On top of this, natural light can help you concentrate, which can be a huge plus if you’re working from home. The best way to let in more light is to install more windows. If you feel like your home is too bright, adding folds and curtains can be a good idea.
