5 Energy Efficient Solutions For Your Home

By Laura Anderson

Your home’s energy-efficiency rating significantly impacts household costs and your home’s saleability. Here’s just a few ways you can help to reduce your home’s environmental impact, plus save on your bills at the same time!

Switch to Solar Hot Water
Only 10% of Australian homes use solar hot water systems even though hot water is the biggest source of energy use.  

Install A Water Efficient Shower Head
A water efficient shower head is a cost effective way to decrease the amount of water your house hold uses, saving water and the cost of heating it. Try shortening your showers to 6 minutes if you want to save even more.

Choose Energy Efficient Appliances
Check the star rating on all appliances before you buy them. What may seem like a cheaper option at the time could end up costing you more in the long term.

Change Your Light Bulbs
A simple switch to energy efficient lighting can lower your electricity bill. CFLs and LEDs are the most energy efficient lighting options.

Consider GreenPower
When you chose a GreenPower product, the company commits to buying the equivalent amount of renewable energy in a government-accredited program.
