Energy Saving tips

Insulate your home. In building a new or remodelling your home consider efficient design strategies. Insulate ceilings and walls.

Use double glazed windows, skylights for natural light penetration, doors properly sealed, allowing for sufficient ventilation.

Build double cavity walls and fill the cavities with insulated materials like polystyrene.

Consider roof design for solar panels and solar geyser loading. You could be saving up to 16% on your bill by properly insulating your home.

Apply for an energy-saving grant. There are plenty of energy-saving grants available to help with the cost of home improvements.

Install a solar geyser that has an element build in that will serve as a backup to use electricity to warm the water.

This can be used in colder months with a geyser timer. Insulate the geyser with a geyser blanket and insulate all hot water pipes in the house.

Using a solar geyser could save up to 40% on your electricity bill.

Reduce the temperature of your geyser to around 55 degrees Celsius so that you don't need to add too much cold water when you shower or do the dishes

Replace old bulbs/fluorescents to LED lighting. LED lightbulbs of 4-6 Watts that gives 400-600 lumens that is sufficient to light a room 4m length 4m breadth X 2,4m height.

Use warm light in bedrooms and lounges, use white light in kitchens and studies.

Make use of occupancy sensors so that when you leave a room the lights will switch off automatically.

Use Eco Smart wall plug units that is designed to reduce cost of energy consumption and power wastage by devices on standby mode/vampire draw/phantom load.

The main outlet senses changes in electrical current to devices plugged into the unit. The main plug will automatically shut down the power on devices connected to the auxiliary outlets when the electrical current of the main outlet drops below an adjustable level.

Use energy monitors. Energy monitors are small table top devices that help you discover how much energy you're using in your home, and how much it's costing.

They show you how much money your energy consumption is costing you, and will tell you how much money you're saving once you begin to change the way you're using energy.

When building for water savings make provision for storage tanks underground or above surface. Run off water from roofs to connect to water tankers via down pipes. This can be used to irrigate your green garden.

Use grey water devices which diverts cold water from a geyser or in the pipes to a tank for reuse. When the hot water reaches the devices it will dispense where needed.

Use energy efficient shower heads can reduce usage of about to 40% of your hot water. Reduce power from a high pressure shower, sometimes these can use more than a bath.
